After detaining the woman, police noticed random words had been written across the walls in the apartment and broken items were littered around every room.

Employees at a fast-food restaurant received a call from a woman claiming to be a corporate representative who had been watching the location through closed-circuit televisions. The woman is said to have called earlier in the day and asked an employee to gather all of the money from the safe and cash registers and exchange it for money orders at nearby stores. The regional supervisor told police that the employees who removed the money from the store are suspects in the case and would be terminated.

A man was allegedly hit in the face after he turned down the sexual advances of a drunken woman with whom he and his girlfriend had been celebrating.

A woman contacted police in regard to harassing messages she had received from a co-worker's female friend. Early one morning, the woman received a call from her coworker to discuss an issue in the office. Less than 20 minutes later, the woman received another call, but this time it was an unknown woman yelling at her not to "talk to her man." After hanging up the phone and ignoring several more calls from the same number, the woman received a text message, further advising her to stay away from the man. After texting both parties to say she would report the incident to the police, the woman received a final text from the woman, saying she didn't care what the police were told, and she would come to the woman's house if she continued having any contact with the man.

As the man staggered down the street, officers noticed him pick up a traffic cone on the sidewalk and hurl it over a nearby brick wall, according to an incident report.
