4:37 a.m. — 3100 block of Wood Street
Suspicion: An officer received a report about a woman screaming. An officer located the woman, who was sitting on the front lawn in front of a residence and screaming at the top of her lungs. She told the officer her boyfriend was inside and she wanted him to come outside. While the officer was there, other residents came out to see what all the noise was about. The officer spoke to people inside the residence. They said the boyfriend was not going to come outside and that they wanted the woman to be quiet and leave.

8:04 a.m. — 2600 block of Waldemere Street
Dispute: A man reported that he was walking his dog with his family when they encountered an older male who was also walking a dog. Because the other male was not using a leash, the man asked him to either put the dog on the leash or take the dog to the nearby off-leash dog park. The man said the older male became irate and told him he could do what he wanted. The man said the male was threatening and at one point suggested the two should fight. An officer gave the man information about the city’s leash laws. The officer was unable to find the other male in the park.
