The side door had a boot print from a right foot, and the door had last been used at 7:30 p.m. May 25. Nothing appeared to have been missing from the garage. Officers followed up with neighbors in the area, and the victim is providing a final cost of damage for the door. The investigation is ongoing.
MAY 27: At 4:26 p.m., officers responded to a trespassing call that escalated to an altercation on the 400 block of School Road Northwest. It was reported that juveniles were trespassing across a homeowner’s property and left their bicycles laying on the property as well. A 35-year-old Hutchinson man moved the bicycles off the property and told the juveniles to “knock it off.” The juveniles ignored the man at first and then started exchanging words. When a 14-year-old boy approached the man, the man pushed the boy back, and the boy then started swinging punches at the man. Police are requesting disorderly conduct charges against the juvenile and fifth-degree assault charges against the man.
