OMG PD: Stiletto Smackdown, Underage Drinking, Trailer Traipse
Here's a round-up of recent and bizarre police report items from the area.
Two people were arrested early Jan. 27 after a brawl broke out inside a downtown Naperville bar, in which a stiletto shoe was used as a weapon, the Naperville Police Department said.
Kenneth S. Davis, 21, of the 500 block of Donna Avenue in Aurora and Jessica M. Manchur, 27, of the 600 block of Grove Drive in Elk Grove Village, were charged with fighting, prohibited under a city ordinance, police said. Officers responded to a fight in progress on the second floor at Rizzo's bar, 6 W. Jefferson Ave., around 12:44 a.m. Jan. 27.
As a result of the fight, one man was transported to the hospital after suffering facial lacerations. An employee was also injured after being "intentionally hit in the face by a stiletto style shoe," police said.
Davis and Manchur were arrested and two others were cited at the bar and released, police said.
A resident in his or her apartment on Jan. 27 was unhappy that a neighbor was running on his treadmill. Both residents were told that there is no criminal violation and were referred to the apartment's home owners' association in the 500 block of East Bailey Road, police said.
Police said Matthew D. Johnson, 20, of the 1700 block of Garfield Boulevard, Chicago, was arrested at 2:33 p.m. Jan. 22 at McChesney & Miller, 460 Crescent Boulevard. He was charged with retail theft and illegal consumption of alcohol by a minor.
Kristen S. Park, 38, of 703 W. Liberty (DuPage PADS), Wheaton, was arrested at 12:22 p.m. Jan. 21 at the Glen Ellyn Public Library, 400 Duane St., police said. She was charged with resisting arrest/obstructing an officer.
Aurorans Michelle Grocesley, 21, and David McCrary, 19, each were arrested on charges of burglary and theft under $500 after an incident at around 2 p.m. Jan. 25 at Tilly's, a "surf, skate, motocross and lifestyle clothing, shoes and accessories" store at 514 Commons Drive.
According to the Police Department synopsis sheet, a group of five people entered Tilly’s at around 1:50 p.m. One of the group, Grocesley, asked an employee if she could use the restroom but was told the restrooms were not available for public use.
Other members of the group caused a distraction, and Grocesley entered a back room. The store surveillance camera system revealed that McCrary joined Grocesley after a short period of time with a purse in his hands, and took several items out of the purse, including a cell phone.
The five subjects were seen leaving the parking lot in a vehicle, and police took them into custody in the 500 block of Lark Street. Police found five credit cards in McCreary’s back pocket and a T-Mobile “My Touch” cell phone in the glove compartment of the vehicle.
The value of the items taken was estimated at $400.
Ranger Heating & Cooling, 3540 Stern Ave., reported at 5:03 p.m. Jan. 23 that someone had tried to break into a trailer parked at the business overnight. Nothing was stolen, although there were marks left on the trailer by the person who had tried to enter it. The owner of the company told police he reviewed a security vehicle that showed a vehicle had driven through the parking lot about 12:30 a.m., and the individual tried to break into a trailer at a neighboring business, Topanco Holdings LLC.
When that effort failed, the individual then tried to break into the Ranger Heating & Cooling trailer, although it apparently was unlocked and contained nothing the thief wanted.
