Police Blotter: Stolen Bikes, Stolen Flowers
Oak Forest police reports, Nov. 19-22
TUESDAY, NOV. 22
Police said they’re looking to speak with a 40-year-old woman who shoved a roommate holding an infant baby in the 15900 block of Janie Court. The two had been arguing over money around 5 p.m. when the woman fled to a relative’s home in Midlothian and could not be reached by police. She potentially faces charges of domestic battery and reckless conduct.
MONDAY, NOV. 21
Police said two bicycles were stolen from a garage in the 16000 block of Oak Avenue sometime between Nov. 17 and Nov. 21. According to the homeowner, they are a blue-and-silver Mongoose with front and back pegs, valued at $100; and a 12-inch blue-and-gray Diamondback with a black pouch attached to the frame, valued at $350.
SUNDAY, NOV. 20
Restitution Made on Stolen Flowers
Police said the owner of a local flower shop has decided not to press charges against a 35-year-old woman who made restitution for stolen flowers. Using credit from a closed account, the woman purchased a $130 flower arraignment on Nov. 9 and paid the money she owed after being contacted by police.
SATURDAY, NOV. 19
Police were dispatched to the front of a home in the 15200 block of Oak Road around 3:30 a.m. about a fight and found two men, aged 22 and 21, with blood and cuts on their hands and faces. One “had a swollen left eye that was oozing blood and completely shut,” police said. The only sober witness to offer testimony with police said the men began fighting after one of them keyed a car. Because the men were dubbed “mutual combatants,” police did not press charges.
