Two men were constructing a fence around a business on Waverly Way in Inman Park. Both men said while they were working, a middle-aged man approached them and offered to pay them $10,000 in small, non-sequential bills if they would burn down the business. Both men said they believed the man has some affiliation with a house for sale on Waverly Way. According to the police report, "Possibly the subject is a realtor." Both men refused the man's offer, so he left. The reporting officer noted, "There has been an ongoing dispute with some of the residents of Waverly Way and this business."
The middle-aged man was described as gray-haired with a thin mustache, wearing jeans and a white T-shirt.
A 29-year-old woman said she was robbed while she was in an apartment on Greenbriar Parkway. She said a fat man -- whom she knows -- took $1,100 from her pants. After the robbery, the woman got in a truck with the fat man and another friend. She said they dropped her off at a location on Metropolitan Parkway. The woman told police that she didn't call 911 from the apartment -- where she was robbed -- because she couldn't get a cell signal.
SHE SAID: A 33-year-old woman said a 55-year-old man let her stay for two weeks at his apartment on Pine Street, while she took care of some business. After three or four days, he started acting strange, talking bad to her, and not letting her eat a sandwich that she made. Then, he hit her leg with a stick, so she went to the balcony and refused to go back inside. He tried to force her into the apartment, so she climbed down the balcony, wearing only her panties. She went to a neighbor, who gave her a dress. Then, she called police.
HE SAID: The 55-year-old man said he never touched the woman, and she was walking around the apartment with nothing on but her panties. He said she refused to put on any clothes, even after he asked her to. Then, she ran onto the balcony, and he tried to get her back inside the apartment. She struggled with him, so he stopped trying. She climbed down the balcony and went to a neighbor's apartment. He said he never hit her, all he did was try to get her to come inside and put on some clothes.
