July 21, 2009 · Updated 1:06 AM
• Early Monday morning, police were dispatched to a Hill Street residence where victims reported they had seen a man sitting in their car; when they went outside, the suspect reportedly ran off. There was no damage to the vehicle and no property was stolen. Police made a sweep of the area but were unsuccessful in turning up the prowler.
• Shortly after closing time Sunday morning, police were called to the scene of a Main Street tavern where they contacted two men who told officers a car had been driven recklessly around the parking lot with its tires spinning. The reporting tandem said when they yelled at the driver to slow down, they were rewarded by the driver throwing something out the window, which struck one of the bystanders in the head. Police scoured the area for the described vehicle, but were unable to locate it.
• Thursday evening, police were dispatched to a Hinkleman Road address where they arrested a 56-year-old Buckley man for harming another man while he was sleeping. The assailant was booked into the Buckley jail on charges of fourth-degree assault, where he was held on $500 bail. The victim was transported to Puyallup’s Good Samaritan Hosptial, where he was treated for injuries to his face and head.
• A 24-year-old Collins Road resident was charged with littering when he was observed by another neighbor throwing a bag of garbage over his fence. The citation will be mailed to the suspect.
