A drunken creep apparently rang a 26-year-old woman’s doorbell. The victim didn’t find anyone at the door, but was surprised to learn the suspect, a man in his 20s, was in his home. The boozed-up man fled.

Two women, ages 41 and 27, struggled with a purse-snatcher. The suspect, a man in his 30s, smacked one of the victims with the purse before fleeing on foot. The purse was later recovered, but no arrest has been made.
