• The burglary of a Washington Avenue business was reported the morning of Jan. 6. There was approximately $150 in damage due to the forced entry. At the time of the report, it was unknown if anything had been taken.

• A Division Street resident reported Jan. 6 that an automobile window had been smashed but nothing was taken. Due to recent conflicts, the victim named a probable suspect, a recent roommate, who later agreed to pay for the broken window.


• Police responded at about 1:15 a.m. Jan. 4 to a reported assault at a Railroad Avenue business. Officers contacted all parties involved and arrested a woman for fourth-degree assault.

Both subjects were arrested, cited and released at the scene.


• About 10:30 p.m. Jan. 6, a call came from a business owner on Church Street in Wilkeson, reporting that the door window of the business had been hit by a rock and shattered.
