SATURDAY, NOV. 10
Out All Night
A mother on Batavia's west side reported at 12:04 a.m. that she had not seen her 16-year-old son since he left for school. He was to be home by 10 p.m. and had not returned.

FRIDAY, NOV. 9
Such a Scrapper
A Batavia man was found "scrapping" from a green dumpster at 9:21 p.m. in the 1000 block of North Paramount Parkway, according to police. The man stated he had permission to go through the dumpster. Police determined that the subject had a suspended driver's license—he was told he would not be allowed to drive his vehicle. A friend came and drove the man off the property. The man was told not to return unless given permission by the owner of the property.
A woman at 6:43 p.m. received 11 calls from an unknown male caller from three different numbers. The woman received the calls while answering phones at the Crisis Line Fox Valley, located in the 500 block of South Batavia Avenue. "The calls were vulgar and threatening in nature," according to a police report. An officer responded and the male called again while the officer was there. The officer directed the male to cease all calls.
Not Your Friend Anymore
A mom on the east side reported at 6:35 p.m. that her 12-year-old daughter was involved in a "Facebook relationship" with an 18-year-old man, according to police. The mom and an officer contacted the man and advised him to cease all contact with the girl.
A resident was reported to be banging on a door at 1:34 a.m. in the 1300 block of East Wilson Street. A police officer escorted the person back to his or her own apartment.
