At 10:20AM WPD received a 911 call indicating that a person was running around the Village in the Park Apartments yelling that someone was trying to stab him. Officers responded and found that the same male, just released from the WPD jail, had accosted another male at one of the apartments.
The victim indicated that the suspect had used a knife to threaten him and make him empty his pockets. The victim was able to flee from the apartment as was an involved female.Officers were able to take the 33yo male, who had been staying at the VIP Apartments with the involved female, back into custody.

On 7/26/20 at 2:30PM officers responded to a report of a disabled vehicle at the corner of Columbia and Center Ridge Rds. The citizen who stopped to help the driver thought that something was wrong with the female behind the wheel. The vehicle was off the roadway and in the grass and when the officer arrived the female appeared to be asleep in the driver’s seat. The officers had to shift the vehicle into park as the driver could not figure out how to accomplish this.
The 42y/o Westlake resident was field tested and arrested for OVI. She was transported to the Westlake Jail while her small dog was taken to the Westlake kennel. They both had to await a sober person to take custody of them.
The driver tested almost 3 ½ times the legal limit of alcohol on her breath. They did not give a breath test to the dog who was quite happy to await a sober ride with some kibble and water. They both were turned over to a relative who came to pick them up.
