Westlake Police: Brother is ‘Spitting Image’

Westlake Police logoA 21-year-old Westlake man entered his mother’s Detroit Rd. home (where he is not permitted) on Jan. 30 at 6:30 p.m., report Westlake Police, and cut up and spat on his 16-year-old brother’s clothing. Why? The “adult” thought that little brother had been wearing some of the adult’s clothing. Big brother then left. Mom wanted to press Criminal Damaging charges, but has failed to come in and sign the complaints.

Duelling Snow Shovellers

Dunford Dr. neighbors found snow shovels to be their weapon of choice during a Feb. 3 evening incident. The two men in their 50s were squabbling over a fence one had put up and over where snow was being moved to. They both tugged on the shovels and pushed each other.

Domestic Violence

A domestic between an 18-year-old Lorain man and his pregnant-by-him 17-year-old Brooklyn girlfriend drew the attention of witnesses on Jan. 31 at 9:57PM. They stated that the pair fought at a Detroit Rd. restaurant and that the male tried to force the female into a car. He ran as police arrived, but was arrested across the street. The female was uncooperative, stating that nothing physical took place. He was charged with DV and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia (pot pipe). He also has a Lorain Co. warrant stemming from an offense when he was a juvenile.

Snow Man

Lying in the snow at 10:46PM always generates concern from passers-bye, as it did on Jan 31. A caller reported a male (found to be a 29-year-old Lakewood man) reclining on a treelawn on Canterbury Rd. He was found to be intoxicated after drinking at a nearby saloon and was arrested for DCI.


A Detroit Rd. woman objected to her boyfriend’s intoxicatedly punching a hole in her wall on Feb. 1 at 2:42AM and called police. He was found nearby and denied doing any damage. The 31-year-old Grafton man was arrested for DCI.


A check stolen from a Cleveland Hts. couple was forged in the amount of $3500 and deposited at a Crocker Rd. bank’s ATM on Dec. 24. A female suspect from Euclid then withdrew that amount the next day from an ATM at the casino downtown.  The bank reported the matter on Feb. 2; the investigation continues.


Jackets worth $1318 were stolen from a Main St. store on Feb. 2 at 2:28PM. 3 black female suspects (2 had blond hair) took them and fled in a maroon 4door vehicle with a temp. tag.

Cold Drunk

A 47-year-old Parma man phoned home on Feb. 2 at 11:20PM to report that he was freezing on Center Ridge Rd. Having previously filled himself with alcohol, he told the officer who found him that he was trying to catch the 49 bus back to Mayfield (note that said RTA line runs from Crocker Park to West Park). He was noted to have ice built up on his chin and eyebrows, and a warrant from Parma PD. He was arrested for DCI and thawed out/sobered up at the City Jail.


A FL woman reported that her credit card account was used on Jan. 24 to run up $5000 in charges at a Detroit Rd. store. Other charges have also been made elsewhere in NE OH as well.

Dangerous Driver

A 26-year-old North Ridgeville woman drove erratically from Center Ridge Rd. at Jaycox into Crocker Park at 6:21AM on Feb. 6, nearly causing 3 head-on crashes. When an officer signaled her to stop on Crocker Rd., she just kept going. She finally stopped on Market St. at Mulberry St., but not before rear-ending a van and then backing into the cruiser. There was moderate damage to the former and none to the latter. She was found to be under the influence of Rx medications and a blood sample was drawn; it will be analyzed by the County Medical Examiner. She fell asleep repeatedly during the investigation and was cited for OVI, DUS, Assured Clear Distance, Weaving, and Failing to Comply.


A 31-year-old Westlake man apparently entered an unlocked Montclair Cr. home on the night of Feb. 5 after cabbing it back from the Cavs game and getting lost.  He woke up around 7am the next morning and startled the residents, then left. He was found nearby still intoxicated and arrested for DCI and Criminal Trespass.
