He was arrested nearby at 4:04 p.m. Oct. 9 and booked on robbery and aggravated assault charges. Just days later, he proceeded to commit more crimes in the area. On Oct. 12 on the 800 block of Pacific Street, he left a victim bleeding from the head after striking him several times with a 4-foot bamboo stick. On Oct. 14, this same robber was found trespassing in the public housing projects on the 600 block of Pacific Avenue.

Clubbed on head: A patrol officer driving along the 100 block of Eddy Street on Oct. 8 came upon a man waving a large piece of wood. Upon investigating, observers pointed him in the direction of a man who had just been hit on the head with a large piece of wood. The witnesses identified the assailant as the man holding the wood. The victim was treated for a large head wound and the attacker was booked for assault with a deadly weapon.

Drunk driving: Officers observed a vehicle drive through a stop sign on Willard and Frederick streets at 2:17 a.m. Oct. 6. After approaching the driver, they immediately smelled alcohol. The driver stated that he “only had six beers.” After failing the field sobriety tests, the driver was taken for the Breathalyzer, which confirmed the officer’s suspicions. He was then booked.

Carjacking: A nightclub patron on the 500 block of Barneveld Street stepped outside at 1:26 a.m. Oct. 13 and saw a group of four men rummaging through his trunk.
