Suspects wanted boy, 16, is shot in arm: Cleveland Heights police blotter


CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, Ohio – Criminal Attack: Euclid Heights Boulevard

At 1:50 p.m. on January 8, police were called to a house on Euclid Heights Boulevard where a 16-year-old boy had been shot in the right upper arm. When an officer arrived, a woman was with the boy.

The woman said the boy went to her car to get her house keys and that she heard gunshots while he was outside. The woman said she then heard a car drive away. The woman had a belt tied around the boy’s arm and was applying pressure. When the officer was attending to the boy, he asked what had happened. The boy didn’t answer, just said that he had to go to a hospital.

A witness told police that he saw a newer red Cadillac in a neighboring driveway just before the shooting. The car contained three men. One of the men got out and disappeared from view for a few minutes. Gunshots were then heard and the witness saw the boy getting out of the car running back to the vehicle which was spinning east on Euclid Heights Boulevard. The police are investigating.

Domestic violence: Northampton Road

At 6:55 p.m. on January 12, a woman went to the police station to report that she was attacked by her boyfriend, the father of her 2-year-old daughter, at around 3:00 p.m. that day.

The woman said that she and the man had argued in the kitchen of her house. She left the room and sat down at a table when the man followed. The man then hit her on the head and threw her to the ground. Then he kicked her several times and hit her with a folding chair. The couple’s daughter was nearby and started crying. The man then took the woman’s cell phone and house key and started walking. The woman asked him to return her things. The man replied, “I would kill you and I have the money to fight me in any case.”

The woman told the police that she was in pain, and the officers saw red spots on her forearm and ribs. Fearing for her safety, the woman wanted to file charges. Complaints about domestic violence, bodily harm and endangering children have been filed against the man.

It was later learned that the man was wanted on a driver’s license warrant issued in Cleveland Heights and in Linndale. The police are looking for the man.

Improper Conduct: Severance Circle

At 10:45 am on January 13th, the police were called into an apartment for the second time that morning. A 56-year-old woman called the police for the first time because the man she used to live with was at her home. The two, who recently split up, fought over their personal property.

Officials helped the man get his belongings back, and he told the police that he would leave. After the police left, the man returned and kicked the woman’s door. He yelled at her that she had to come out sometime. When a neighbor heard the commotion and opened the door, the man cursed the neighbor.

The second time the officers arrived, the man argued with the police and put his hands in his pockets as he paced up and down. The officers repeatedly told him to take his hands out of his pockets, but the man did not do so. The man next complained of chest pain. The police took the man to the hospital and accused him of disorderly behavior. The woman left the scene with her daughter.

Administrative Behavior: Somerton Road

At 11:20 am on January 10, police were called into a house where a man believed that his landlord had taken money from his room. The man and his landlord quarreled when officers arrived, each not allowing the other to use the house phone.

After a while, the police decided they were no longer needed and left the two men. However, at 10:30 am, the officers were called back to the house, where the man said his landlord took his blood pressure medication from his room and then left the house. The man asked EMS to check his condition. While an ambulance service was present, the landlord returned home and mocked the man. The man was upset and stormed back into the house.

The police warned the landlord not to make fun of the man and left again.

At 11.20 a.m., the police were called back into the house a third time. This time the man who filed the complaint against the landlord threw garbage on the living room floor. Officials believed the men fought each other to the point that violence could result and accused both of them of being messy.
