A 41-year-old Doraville man was visiting a female friend who lives in an apartment on Glenn Street. Two men knocked on the door and asked to speak with the 41-year-old man. The 41-year-old stepped outside, and a fat man pulled out a silver gun and said, "You know what time it is. Give it up."

The 41-year-old asked the two men not to take his Nokia phone. They took it anyway. The two men also forced the 41-year-old to take off his shoes and socks. Then, they took the $465 cash he had stored in his socks.

The 41-year-old believes the female friend set him up, because when he stepped outside to speak with the two men, she closed the door and locked it.

Security officers at an apartment complex on Maynard Court called police about an unruly female resident.

When an officer arrived on the scene, he approached the woman's apartment and saw a broken front window. He peered inside and saw the woman sitting on a couch with an aluminum bat in her hand. The woman, age 26, weighs about 200-225 pounds.

The officer asked the woman to unlock her front door, and she complied.

The officer stepped inside. He saw "broken glass on the floor and broken furniture that was consistent with damage from a bat," the officer noted in his report. "I secured the bat as well as a knife that was out in the open."

The woman stated that she wanted to put on a show because the people in front of her apartment wouldn't give her $5 worth of weed.

The woman was arrested for damaging property. A search of her purse revealed a small bag of marijuana.

On Griffin Street, a 17-year-old woman said a 19-year-old male approached her about having his children on the street at 9:30 at night. (The children are age 2 and 8 months). She said he didn't take care of the children, and he couldn't tell her what

to do.

The 19-year-old then slapped her across the face with his hand, which had

spit on it. He fled before police arrived.

She described the 19-year-old to police, noting that he has "Thug for Life" tattooed on his stomach.

A 23-year-old woman said she exited the Lindbergh MARTA station and took a bus to her place of employment. At the appropriate stop, she got off the bus and started to walk to her workplace.

A twentysomething man came up behind her and lifted her a few feet off the ground, she said. The woman scratched him across the face and walked into a cafeteria. The man followed her and offered to buy

her breakfast.

He fled before police arrived.

A woman returned to a package store on John Wesley Dobbs Avenue, after receiving a criminal trespass warning from the storeowner. The owner said she approached customers and asked them for money.

A police officer arrived. He recognized the woman, since he previously arrested her for trespassing at the same liquor store.

Once again, the officer arrested the woman. She told the officer that he was in love with her and she hated him.

She was taken to jail.

At 4:20 a.m., an officer responded to a disturbance call on Linden Avenue. The female caller said a man in a white T-shirt and a long pair of black shorts just busted out her window.

The officer reported: "While patrolling the area I observed [an 18-year-old man] standing at the corner of North Avenue and Parkway blocking the sidewalk. He fit the description of the male described in the disturbance on Linden Ave."

The 18-year-old was detained and taken back to the woman's residence on Linden for identification. But the woman said it was the wrong guy.

The officer reported that the man was "still charged accordingly for blocking the sidewalk to pedestrian traffic. While being searched incident to arrest, I found approximately $1600. The money was counted and turned into property for safekeeping."??
