11 a.m. — 2600 block of Hyde Park Street. Dispute/Fight. A woman reported she was having an ongoing dispute with her neighbor. The woman said her neighbor has been angry with her for months, dating back to an incident where the woman may have accidentally run over the neighbor’s cat with her car. Since then, the neighbor has called the woman names, made obscene hand gestures at her and spat at the woman. On this day, the woman was driving by the park when she saw the neighbor running at her car. The woman was able to drive away before the neighbor could spit on her car, but was still concerned. After meeting with the neighbor, an officer came away with the impression that she was mad at all of her neighbors, not just the woman. The officer asked the neighbor to leave the woman alone.
