Watching one’s mouth
While walking the Summerville High School hallways, May 19, the school SROs observed a subject walking with a female student. When asked for his school ID and out-of-class-pass, the subject ignored the request and continued walking. Asked again, the subject became angry, clenching his fists, and walked into a classroom. A few minutes later a teacher came down to the SRO office and told the officers that the subject was overheard talking to other students and telling them “I was about to stick her.” When the teacher requested the subject come into the classroom he did, going to the back of the class. Again, he was overheard telling students “that cop, she was telling me to get to class, I was about to stab her.” This then became a major disruption in the classroom. The two school resource officers went with the teacher back to the classroom and escorted the subject to the principal’s office.
Wasted food
Police responded to a residence at the South Main Mobile Home Park in reference to a possible Criminal Domestic Violence incident. Separating the parties, officers took their statements. The male said the female had started yelling at him for not being home. Consequently he told her he was leaving and would not be paying rent. She threw a cup at him, he said.
In retaliation, he said he got up and went into the kitchen where the female was and dumped a cold bottle of Nestle Quick Chocolate Syrup on her head. She then struck him with a closed hand on top of his head, he told police.
Both left the residence, but both returned to await police.
The female told police that when she returned she saw the cooking pot was missing from the stove and water and cooked noodles were on the floor and walls.
However officers noticed the female’s face was red and asked if the cooking pot had been dumped on her. She said “no.”
Both claimed no knowledge of how the noodles ended up all over the floor and walls.
In the dark of the night
Police responded to South Main Street on report of damage to a residence. The victim told police that she was awakened by a noise in her bedroom around 11:30 p.m. May 17, but did not get out of bed until the following morning. When she awoke she felt something against her leg and noticed glass on her bed and floor. She saw a windowpane was broken and a large rock on the floor. She could not identify a perpetrator nor was she having any problems with anyone.
