Police received a report of a male who was on the outside railing of the Lorain Rd Bridge. Upon arrival, officers found that the male was indeed holding onto a pole on the outside of the railing. Officers engaged the male in conversation trying to coax him to voluntarily come onto the correct side. The male became increasingly agitated, and as he turned and tensed to jump, all three officers grabbed him and were able to pull him onto the sidewalk and restrain him until paramedics arrived. They transported the 46 year old North Olmsted resident to Fairview Hospital.
Police were called to a residence on W 204 St when the resident reported that his truck was damaged while parked at W 204/Lorain. He came out after an appointment and found the door to his truck had been spray painted. Officers are awaiting video from a nearby business which may have caught the suspects engaged in the criminal activity.
