Bizarre crimes from Atlanta police reports
[image-1]WHEN ROOMMATES GO BAD: A 21-year-old woman said her roommate/boyfriend assaulted her at their apartment on Tumlin Street. She said she was asleep in her room when he started banging on her door, and accused her of eating his pizza. "He called her a bitch and demanded that she open the door," an officer wrote. Then, he apparently went away.
The woman said she left the apartment for a few hours – but when she returned, the roommate/boyfriend confronted her in the kitchen and said she owed him $10. "He then threw a fork at her, the fork struck her chest area, he then threw a knife toward her, but missed," an officer wrote.
The woman said she left the apartment and did not return. She reported the incident to Georgia Tech police, who notified Atlanta police. The next day, an Atlanta police officer escorted her to the apartment to gather her things. The roommate/boyfriend wasn't there. The woman said she only knows her roommate/boyfriend's first name – not his last name.
