The Blotter 

Lunch Break Gone Bad: Two construction workers at an apartment complex were eating lunch inside a car when two other men, both of whom were brandishing guns, approached the vehicle from behind. The armed men pointed their guns at the victims' heads, and robbed them of nearly $400 in cash, a cell phone, and various credit cards.

Pirate on the Loose: A man was arrested after police caught him on the street corner trying to sell nearly $1,000 worth of unauthorized CDs and DVDs, none of which displayed the true name and address of the manufacturer.

Missing Parents: Upon answering a knock at her front door, a woman was greeted by a young man and a two-year-old child. The young man informed the woman that he found the child wandering around the neighborhood, and was trying to find his parents. The two concerned citizens knocked on all their neighbors' doors, but were unable to locate the child's caregivers, so they called the police.

Roommates from Hell: A man reported that when he entered his residence, his roommate suddenly grabbed him and threw him against the wall. The raucous roomie then proceeded to knee the victim in the chest and punch him in the head and face. In another incident, a man was hanging out and drinking with his three roommates when suddenly, and for no apparent reason, the three men started punching him in the face, causing a three-inch laceration on his cheek.

Boyfriends from Hell: A woman reported that her boyfriend assaulted her by hitting her with a stick and punching her in the face, resulting in a minor laceration. In a separate incident, a woman reported that her live-in boyfriend pawned several of her belongings in order to buy drugs. In yet another incident, a woman called police after her live-in boyfriend struck her multiple times with his open hand, a pillow and a bandanna.

Time to Increase Medication: A caseworker for a mental health group was assaulted by one of her clients, who pushed her in the back, twisted her arm and grabbed her around the neck.

Moon Man: An elderly gent driving down the street was approached by a vagrant begging for money. When the motorist refused, the bum picked up a concrete block and threatened to throw it at his car. As the man backed up, the beggar loser pulled down his pants and mooned the driver.
