The Blotter 

Absurd crimes from the local police files.

Last time he tries to stop a cat fight: Officers were called to Everett Lane February 29th when two women started fighting, and one grabbed a knife and tried to stab the other. The assailant's husband tried to restrain the women and break up the fight, but in doing so, he got cut on the finger.

Strange revenge plots, part one: After three bomb threats were called into Georgian Hills Junior High on February 25th, a parent told the assistant principal that her boyfriend was the one making the threats. Apparently, her boyfriend and her son got into an argument and the boyfriend was using the bomb threats to retaliate against the son. The next day, the school received yet another bomb threat.

Strange revenge plots, part two: Police were called February 24th after a woman on Genesis Street woke up to knocking at her front door. People outside said they were the police, and when she let them in, they said they had a warrant for her arrest. She told the officers that she needed to put on clothes, but "once she went to her bedroom ... she thought to herself, 'Arrested for what?'" When she returned to the living room and asked to see the warrant, the woman noticed one of the officers' badges said Imperial Security on it. She told them she was going to call the real police and that's when her ex-boyfriend came in with two other guys. She escaped and called 911, and the suspects left. She told police her boyfriend was upset because he had seen a male friend driving her car. -- Compiled by Mary Cashiola
