11 disturbances and the second morning in a row with a strong-arm robbery

This morning's numbers are just a little bit different from yesterday morning. Lawrence police conducted 10 vehicle stops between midnight and 5 a.m.. Only two DWI related arrests this morning, one from KUPD and one from LPD, and both of those also include charges for the driver refusing to be tested.

Here is a look at some of the numbers from Lawrence Police this morning;

  • 11 Disturbances
  • 2 Noise complaints
  • 2 Non-injury accidents
  • 1 Trespassing complaint
  • 1 Strong-arm robbery

At 12:20 this morning, Eudora Police and a Douglas County deputy were called to check for an erratic driver eastbound on K-10 approaching Eudora. A 911 caller was following the vehicle and reported the driver was all over the roadway and possibly left the roadway entirely at one point. The caller followed the vehicle to the Church Street exit and then north. Eudora Police caught up with the driver at the Kwik Shop. No arrests were recorded related to the incident.

Just after 12:40 a.m., Lawrence police were called to an address in the 600 block of Michigan Street on a domestic disturbance. A man was eventually arrested and faces charges of criminal damage to property and escape from custody. While he was being transported to the County Jail apparently he was trying to open the door of the patrol car that was transporting him. It was not clear if he slipped his cuffs completely, was able to get his hand in front of him or what exactly prompted the escape charge. The officer driving the car did call for assistance at K-10 and Franklin, about a block from the jail for help detaining the subject again.

At 1:15 a.m., Police were called to an address in the 2400 block of Ousdahl Road for a possible burglary in progress. The resident reported an unknown male in his 20's opened the front screen door of the home and then tried to open the main door. After finding the front door was locked, the man then made his way to the resident's vehicle parked nearby and tried to open the doors. Police arrived and the man was arrested for criminal trespassing and an outstanding warrant for failure to appear in municipal court.

Officers were called to the intersection of 9th and Massachusetts Street at 2:45 a.m. following reports of a fight in progress, and one subject with a bloody nose. Medics were also dispatched to stage in the area. After breaking up the fight, medics treated one person for what were described as minor injuries.

A Mil-Spec security officer called Lawrence Police at 2:50 a.m., to the 1000 block of W 23rd Street after witnessing a non-injury accident. Apparently Mil-Spec told dispatchers that they were detaining the driver after she attempted to flee from the scene of a collision with a parked vehicle. LPD arrived and eventually arrested the driver. She now faces charges her second DWI, in addition to refusing a test and no proof of liability insurance.

At 4:55 a.m., Lawrence Police were called to the Dillon's at 1015 W. 23rd Street following the strong-arm theft of nine cartons of cigarettes. The suspect, described as a heavy set black female, reportedly shoved an employee to get to the cigarettes and then fled in a red Buick passenger car. According to scanner traffic, it appeared that officers have had similar incidents with a suspect vehicle matching this description. It was unclear if the actual suspect description matched or just the vehicle.

Two of the trespassing calls this morning involved unknown subjects trying to enter Greek houses.

The first was reported about 2:30 a.m. and involved a man in a red coat who was knocking and possibly trying to open the front door of the Kappa Kappa Gamma house at 1 Gower Place.

KU Police checked the area of the Chancellor's residence and did not report locating anyone in the area.

The second trespassing complaint was at the Alpha Chi Omega house at 1500 Sigma Nu Place around 4:15 a.m.. This time the trespasser was said to be an unknown woman in a black skirt.
