At 2:41 a.m. Officer Dubowy was dispatched to a report of a man passed out in his vehicle with the engine running near Mowry Avenue and Farwell Drive. A records check showed that the man had an outstanding warrant; he also was in possession of heroin. The suspect was arrested.
At 5:06 p.m. officers were called to the Jack in The Box eatery on the 43900 block of Osgood Road to investigate an armed robbery. The suspect, described as a black man in his 30s, walked in and demanded cash, while pointing a gun at employees and threatening them if they didnÕt comply. The employees complied with the demand and the suspect fled. He was wearing a black sweater and black pants and was armed with two handguns. The employees were shaken up and the business closed for the rest of the evening.
At 6:39 p.m. multiple officers were sent to a residence on the report of an assault with a deadly weapon in the 4600 block of Stafford Avenue. A female caller had alleged that her female roommate stabbed her and her dog. Arriving officers determined the call was a hoax and that there have been ongoing issues at the residence between the roommates. The roommate, who has a long history of causing disturbances and calling police with false claims, left the house on foot along with her dog. Several officers searched the area and found her near Blacow Park. The officers at the scene obtained evidence that the roommate had battered another resident, leaving a mark on her skin and vandalized personal property of the homeowner. The 46-year-old woman was arrested on suspicion of battery and vandalism. She was booked into Santa Rita County Jail.
