July 28, 2007


Law enforcement report

¢ Lawrence police responded to a possible aggravated assault at 9:52 p.m. Wednesday in the 1800 block of West 26th Street.

One of several men inside the apartment told police he was watching movies when he heard a knock at the door and saw two men standing in the hallway outside. One of the men began asking about his pit bull that was taken from the lake.

After letting the man inside to look for the dog, the male resident reported that the man pulled a silver semi-automatic handgun from his front waistband, held it down at his side and left the apartment.

Another male occupant of the residence told police he heard a sound similar to a weapon chambering a round and saw the suspect hold a silver handgun down by his waist.

Other occupants at the residence reported they did not see a gun. None of the other people at the apartment reported calling police at the time of the incident.

I'm going to ruin someones fun by throwing out the sarcastic perspective that if pitbulls were illegal, then this wouldn't have happened.

I would imagine that the gentleman with the gun politely stated his request to search the premises for his dog, and the gentleman without the gun (at hand) complied.

and just how stupid do you have to be to let a thuggish guy in "to look for his pitbull?" this idiot ranks as the stupidest guy in the paper at least this week, maybe all year!!! and, yes, if you're in an apartment, and you don't know if there's a pit roming around?????

My guess is there were other pit bulls in that apartment and the guy saw that his wasn't one of them.

This pit bull story is obviously a misidentified alien abduction attempt. Luckily the alien and his silver probe decided to leave when he saw a gray and white cat in the apartment, Even if they find the probe wielding alien they will not be able to press the pit bull armed robbery attempt charges as all of the residents of the apartment are now deceased. Beware Oscar the grumpy cat!
