On 8/27/19 at approx. 11:41PM 2 subjects walked into Clague Park and wandered around the new Peterson Pool.The male half of the couple decided to spray paint one of the brick structures at the pool with graffiti.Luckily for us he was willing to smile at the camera.We are now looking to identify both of the subjects.If you recognize either or have other information, please call the Westlake PD non-emergency line at 440-871-3311.You may remain anonymous if desired.

On 8/31/19 at approx.. 8PM WPD received a call from Drug Mart on Detroit Rd reporting that a male had entered the store, staggered around then entered the employee break room.Officers noted that the male was swaying when just sitting on a seat in the break room.Although he denied drinking the 62yo from Fairview Park appeared highly intoxicated.He was transported to the hospital and cited with disorderly conduct.

On 9/1/19 at about 3AM an Uber driver called WPD to report unruly passengers in her vehicle.According to the caller, when the 4 passengers found out that she was calling the police due to their argumentative nature and the fact that they asked to “do drugs” in her vehicle, 2 of the males grabbed her from behind and tried to turn the wheel of the moving vehicle.When the victim pulled off the road to await officers, one of the males ran away.Officers located and interviewed the remaining 3.They all appeared to be highly intoxicated but denied attacking the driver.After gathering all the statements and tracking down the interloping passenger, 3 were arrested.A 20yo from Elyria was charged with underage consumption.A 21yo from Olmsted Falls was charged with assault and disorderly conduct.A 20yo from Westlake was charged with underage consumption and assault.
