Bizarre crimes from Charlotte police files (Oct. 24) 

Remember to tip well

Dark Deed: A 26-year-old woman filed a police report against her neighbor last week after being assaulted as she was leaving her home. She told officers she was walking out of her apartment when she heard someone screaming and walking toward her. The woman couldn't see who it was because it was dark out, but soon the suspect came closer and smacked the hat off of her head. The suspect kicked the hat into heavy traffic and continued to scream. She continued to kick the hat around the street until the victim could recover it and make her way to the bus stop. The victim said her neck had been hurt in the incident.

Tip Sheet: An employee at a local Jimmy John's was arrested last week after a manager realized the clerk didn't approve of the tips some customers were giving him and took it upon himself to take what he deserved. The manager reported to police that the employee had changed tip amounts on 25 different orders, which came to an extra $400.

Say It Louder: A 37-year-old woman approached officers in the University area last week, saying she was being stalked by her ex-boyfriend. She first became concerned when the man sent flowers to her job one morning and then showed up there later that day. It came to a head later when she found that the man had allegedly broken into her home, placed a small audio recorder on top of her kitchen cabinets and had been listening to her conversations.

Shitty Day: A 45-year-old woman called police after someone began harassing her with feces. The woman was leaving for work one morning when she picked up a piece of litter in front of her door. The litter was actually a piece of paper with poop smeared on it. She threw the paper down, thinking it was just a case of very bad luck. When she returned home, however, she found that someone had smeared feces all over her mailbox. She told officers that the original paper had a name and address on it. They are investigating the matter.

Cheers!: The administration at Turning Point Academy found a man roaming campus last week trying to relive his school days. The man reportedly entered campus with an open bottle of alcohol at about 11 a.m.; he was quickly stopped by staff and handed over to police.

iFail: A 27-year-old man was taken for $650 last week after breaking one of the most important rules of the Blotter: Never buy technology in a Hardee's parking lot. The man met the suspect and paid him for a MacBook computer, but as soon as he opened it he was met with a "Find My Mac" message, telling him he was in possession of a stolen computer.

Blotter items are chosen from the files of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty.

  • On Saturday, Oct. 21, hundreds gathered at Camp North End on Statesville Avenue for Charlotte's first black alternative music festival. We captured some of the bands in action on stage, but mostly we surveyed the grounds as fans, families, vendors and more lounged around the sprawling, colorful Camp North End site. It was a great day of music, food, fun, and sweet, autumn sunshine. (Photos by Mark Kemp)
