March 28th Early Morning Law Enforcement & Fire/Medical wrap up
After a busy Tuesday morning, things calmed back down to around normal Wednesday morning.
Lawrence Police responded on four disturbances between midnight and six this morning. Three of those were said to be Domestic related. Officers reported one arrest being made for domestic battery. No serious injuries were reported.
LPD also responded on a theft and two noise complaints.
Shortly before 6 a.m., Lawrence Police were called to an apartment building in the 1700 block of W 24th on reports of a burglary. Once caller reported a man on balconies trying to enter apartments, while officers were responding, a caller reported that the subject had possibly climbed onto the roof of the building. Officers arrived and setup around the building. As Police walked through the building's third floor, at least two residents reported that a male had entered their apartments. Officers also located a roof hatch that was not latched. The Fire Department was requested to respond with a ladder to assist officers in accessing the roof. An officer then spotted a male, matching one victim's description, running from the building. Officers chased that male on foot and were able to apprehend him in the 2400 block of Ousdahl. Medics were requested to check the suspect. No serious injuries were reported. As of this report, Police remain on the scene investigating and have requested a camera be brought to the roof.
