Police Blotter: Another Peeper; Troublesome Solicitors
The following information was provided by the Strongsville police department
A Lenox Drive man said he rolled over in his sleep about 2:50 a.m. Oct. 5 and saw a man looking in his window.
The peeper was black, but the victim could give no other description.
Police checked the area, but found no one around.
Last week, a Woodhaven Drive woman told police a man has looked in her window at least twice.
Door-to-Door Canvassers Cause Problems
Police handled two complaints about aggressive workers knocking on doors Oct. 5.
One resident complained two women pounded on her doors and windows, tried the doorknobs and yelled "loser" at her when she wouldn't open her door about 5 p.m.
Officers located the team leader for Working America on Misty Lake Drive and warned her to control her crew.
A few minutes later, a Peppergrass Circle resident said a woman kept knocking on her door and asking if "John" lived there.
Police spoke with the woman, who said she was soliciting for the election and her list showed someone named John lived at that house.
Bad Crash on I-71
Three people were taken to the hospital about 12:30 p.m. Oct. 7 after the pickup truck they were in flipped several times, landing upside down.
None of the three -- a Brunswick woman and two kids, 13 and 14 -- were seriously injured, a report said.
Police said the woman was getting off the turnpike onto I-71 south and failed to navigate the curve. She overcorrected and went off the right side of the road, causing the truck to flip and roll.
She was cited, police said.
Homework at the High School
A passerby reported seeing kids hanging out at Strongsville HIgh School about 5 p.m. Oct. 7.
Police found the boys, who were doing a science experiment for class in which they had to drop objects off the bleachers to see if they broke.
Officers told them to coordinate it with the school next time so they weren't trespassing.
Disturbance at the Mall
A customer asked police to file kidnapping charges against two girls for taking a 2-year-old to the restroom Oct. 6.
A report said the woman was at Firefly's Mini Golf with her daughter, daughter's friend and nephew when the girls said they needed to use the restroom.
She thought they would use the restroom at Firefly's, but found they had gone into the mall, taking the 2-year-old with them.
She wanted to charge them with kidnapping for taking the toddler into the mall.
Officers told her it was not a police matter.
