Fr: Capt. Guy Turner

An intoxicated 22-year-old Bay Village man fled from the ER at St. John Medical Center on March
20 at 1:12AM. He was there for treatment of a chin injury. He was found on the hospital grounds and
arrested for DCI, whereupon he began kicking the rear window of the cruiser. He was hobbled and a
spit hood (allows a prisoner to breathe but not to spit on others) placed over his head. He was held until
sober at the City Jail.

A $750 set of golf clubs was taken from a Detroit Rd. man’s apartment complex garage between March
1-20. No suspects.

A woman walking her dog on Westchester Pkwy. was the victim of public indecency on March 20
at 1:14PM. The white male driver of a black boxy sedan was masturbating as he pulled to the curb
alongside her. A possible suspect has been identified. On March 22, a Lorain County woman reported
a public indecency by a middle-age male (no further description) in a brown sedan. The suspect pulled
alongside her car on Center Ridge Rd. back on March 16 and honked his horn; when she looked over,
the suspect was masturbating. Investigations of both incidents continue.

and $150 IPod between November 2011 and March 2012. The 18-year-old suspect had been staying
with the victim due to being homeless. The prosecutor will rule on possible theft charges. The suspect
is now in the Lorain Co. Jail on unrelated matters; it is noted that the shoes in his property there are
a “beat-up pair of Adidas”.
