Good morning, everyone, it's 8:39am. Sorry for no post yesterday, guys, but I was busy most of yesterday then caught up on some much needed rest. Today, I'm going to cover 25. For tomorrow (Christmas Eve) and Christmas day, I'll be on a special schedule. I will be monitoring a combination of 25 and 17 beginning on Thursday and ending next Monday. With that, here's crime for today.
8:48am - Disturbance. Fullerton and Hamlin. Man standing in the middle of the street.
9:11am - Assault. 3800 W Fullerton. Man threatened a cashier at the store. Not sure if this is related to the Fullerton/Hamlin ordeal, but I think it is.
9:14am - I have to go. I have quite a few things to do today and won't be back until this evening. I'll see you all later. Have a great day, everyone!
