Irate customer…

At that point, the customer picked up and threw a phone charger at the employee, striking her in the hand (which she had raised to block the projectile).

Robbed…
1:35 pm
A 19/f says five men tried to rob several people in the 3300 block of N. Fairview. One of them pointed a gun at someone and demanded money. That person ran into the house and locked the door.

Suspicious…

She says someone who was parked on the side of the street rolled down his window and asked her how old her son was and if he could have a sucker. She declined and proceeded on her way.

A 63/f says she found a Bryson Jennings .380 semi automatic pistol behind a business in the 200 block of N. Rock. The firearm was submitted as evidence.
