A 24-year-old man said that he was carjacked by a man with a Mohawk as he walked out of a store on Martin Street. The Mohawk man took his license, MARTA breeze card, money and the keys to a Honda Accord. But the car doesn't belong to the 24-year-old man — it belongs to his roommate's grandmother. Her family described the 2004 Honda Accord as gold or champagne in color, and its only distinguishing feature is a vanity plate with the word "Nana" in baby-blue lettering. The thief was still at large when the police report was filed earlier this month.
PERILS OF INTERNET DATING: An officer saw a car stopped on James Jackson Parkway early one morning. As he walked up, he saw a woman in the front passenger seat with her head resting on the dashboard. The officer asked if the woman was OK, and she replied that she was fine. A woman with a bruise on her face was in the back seat. The officer asked her what happened, and the woman responded that she went on a date with a man known only as Mikey. She said Mikey drove her to an apartment to have sex. Around 2 a.m., the woman was ready to go home but Mikey said he was tired and wasn't going to drive her home. The woman hit Mikey with her fist in an attempt to wake him up. Mikey punched her face and ran away. The woman said she only knew Mikey from Craigslist and this was their first date.
The woman, 31, hails from Carrolton. "She stated she was never coming back to the city," the officer wrote. She didn't want to press charges. Apparently, the other woman in the car is her friend, who came to pick her up.
STRANGE SIGN OFF: A 22-year-old man said he was with his girlfriend at his house on Meldrum Street, when his ex-girlfriend showed up and got mad when she saw his new girl. The man said he left the house to avoid a fight.
According to the man's brother, the ex-girlfriend returned about an hour later and smashed a brick into the man's car windshield. The man showed police a text message allegedly from his ex-girlfriend that read, "Get a new windshield," signed "Doe China." But Doe China is not the ex-girlfriend's name.
BAD PLACE TO PARK: Around 8 a.m., a woman in a white car was allegedly blocking the Spring Street exit ramp to I-75/85 northbound. An officer wrote, "She refused to get out of the vehicle when police asked her to," so police removed her from the car, with minor injuries to her elbow and toe. "[The woman] admitted to being high on crack cocaine at the time of incident," the officer wrote. The woman, 21, hails from Vandiver, Ala.
WELCOME TO ATLANTA! A 25-year-old woman from Cincinnati, Ohio, said she was walking to a store on Haygood Avenue last month, when she stepped into an uncovered, 1-foot-deep water meter. She said her hip hurt, but she refused to go to a hospital.
RECESSION SPECIAL: An undercover officer said a 30-year-old woman walked up to his car in a Pizza Hut parking lot. "Once inside my car, she told me she was good at 'sucking' and 'fucking,' the officer wrote. "She told me she would charge me $25 for 'sucking.' She later said for $40, she would give me anal and oral sex." The officer charged her with prostitution and gave her a ticket to show up in court this month.
SIZE MATTERS: An officer responded to a domestic dispute at an apartment on Cleveland Avenue last month. A 30-year-old woman said her live-in boyfriend pushed her when she told him she was going to her girlfriend's party. The boyfriend accused her of going to see another man and pushed her over the bed.
The boyfriend, 52, said the woman pushed him and made him bust his lip. The boyfriend said, "Man, she way bigger than me." The officer charged them both with disturbing the peace and took them to jail.
WORST NEIGHBOR OF ALL TIME: On Inspiration Way, an 18-year-old girl and a 58-year-old woman said their neighbor ran over their dog. The 58-year-old woman said, "that they threw the ball and like always, Shoes (the dog) ran and caught it," the officer wrote. "He was coming back into the yard when [the neighbor] hit him with his Jeep. Shoes barked immediately and fell to the ground. There was blood around the dog. [The neighbor] turned around in middle of the driveway. He smirked and stated, 'Next time, you'll keep him out of the street' — then drove away." Police went to the neighbor's home on Inspiration Way, but he wasn't home. The 58-year-old woman said the event had a traumatic effect on her family. Nothing further.
