The Blotter 

CREEPY RENTER: A 32-year-old woman was showing a man a room she hoped to rent out. All went well, until the man starting making sexual comments. So she asked him to leave. After he departed, the woman noticed her wallet, car keys and checkbook were gone.

FEUDING NEIGHBORS: A 52-year-old man said he'd repeatedly told his neighbor to stay off his property. Then, one day, the neighbor crossed the line. While moving his grass, he crossed into the 52-year-old man's property by one foot. When the 52-year-old man's wife heard the two arguing, she came to her husband's defense, pushing the man and snatching the lawn mower from his hands. She maintained she didn't do anything wrong: The neighbor was in her yard, and she only assaulted him because he refused to get off her property.

PESKY PRANKSTER: A 22-year-old man said someone called his phone more than 150 times in 10 days. The caller doesn't say anything, but presses buttons on the phone.

GIRL FIGHT: A 20-year-old woman said she was at a friend's house when another woman got in her face, pushed her into the wall and bit her on the arm. After the fight was broken up, the guest then stormed out of the house, a baseball bat in her hand. Witnesses saw the woman walk toward the 20-year-old's car and beat the car with the baseball bat.

SIGNS YOUR HUSBAND IS CHEATING: A 40-year-old woman said a woman has called her house at least 20 times to annoy and harass her. The woman asks to speak to her husband and then hangs up.

THREAT OF THE WEEK: A 34-year-old man said another man told him, "I will burn down your house with you and your family in it." He believes the man will actually carry out the threat and plans to press charges.

  • 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)
