March 4 – March 5, 2014

Today’s Good News
Thanks to the speedy response and good observation skills of several First Precinct officers, a man who robbed a woman at gunpoint on Friday was quickly arrested. The woman was walking behind a business on Maury Street when the man approached her, displayed a firearm and stole her purse. Officers canvassed the area and spotted a man matching the robber’s description, but when they tried to detain him, he ran. Though they lost sight of him, they were able to gather information about his location from community members with whom they have good relationships. A short time later, they searched a home and found him hiding inside a bathroom. He was then safely arrested and charged accordingly. Good work officers!
