The Blotter 

Bizarre crimes from Charlotte's police reports

Stiletto To The Face: At a certain Morehead Street bar, a 22-year old Chapel Hill man sustained an injury from an employee of the establishment. But it wasn't a bouncer or bartender that clocked him upside the head. According to the report, "The man received an injury to his tooth while watching a female dance on a pole." Both he and the dancer stated it was an accident and no criminal intent was involved. The fact that he still filed a report must be charity to this Blotter writer.

On Hallow's Eve: A woman reported four inflatable Halloween decorations (a pumpkin, a spider, Frankenstein's Monster and the Grim Reaper) were stolen from her house. Want a scarier Halloween crime? Two chainsaws were stolen from the Escape From Ammityville Haunted House. Scarier still? A man wearing a Scream mask entered a cleaners in Matthews and stated that he had a gun, ordering the employee to the back of the shop. He then emptied the cash register and left.

Malibu stacy Gettin' Freaky: A doll was humiliated when a vandal broke into her home, made her strip and robbed her of her clothes. An unknown suspect broke into a 60-year-old woman's home and the only thing she claims the suspect lifted was $100 worth of doll clothes (a head-band and dark brown fur shawl) from a doll on the shelf of her bedroom closet. Isn't it more plausible that this inanimate floozy was caught mid-tryst with Ken -- notorious manwhore of the doll kingdom?

The New Yorkers: After threatening to slit a suspect's throat, a man added for good measure: "I know people from New York that can do harm to you."

Stop Pawning My Stuff: A woman wanted to turn in a family member after finding pawn slips in her house and realizing the suspect had pawned her stuff. A George Foreman Grill, valued at $130, was taken and re-sold. Valued at $130? Did it come with a heavyweight title belt?

Threat Of The Week: A woman has received 75 phone calls from a fellow. The charming lad advised: "I'll whip your ass. My brother and I knocked my father's teeth out, and I'll do the same to you."

Blotter items are chosen from the files of the Charlotte Police Department.

  • 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)
