2 Wrong Numbers: Man Pocket-Dials Police and Gets Questioned; Woman Misdials and Gets Help

The following information was provided by the Strongsville police department

Two people called police without intending to late last week, according to reports:

• On Aug. 23, North Royalton police got an open phone line call that made them suspicious. 

Dispatchers said they could hear a man and woman talking to a toddler, and said the language they were using was way out of line.

Police checked out the family, which recently moved to Strongsville, and found no signs of abuse. The dad said he had called North Royalton police a few days earlier and must have dialed the number when he sat on his phone.

• On Aug. 22, Strongsville dispatchers answered a 911 call and got no verbal response, just someone pushing buttons on the phone.

Police went to the Falmouth Drive home and found a 90-year-old woman who recently moved there and was frustrated -- she was trying to change her address to pay some bills and didn't know how.

An officer stayed and got her address changed on her bills, a report said.

1-And people wonder why children ( even very young ones) use such bad language. No, I do NOT use that kind of language. I hope the police set them straight, because if the parents don't change, in less then 10 years we will be reading about that child on this site. 2- I want to send a big THANK YOU to the police officer that stayed and helped the elderly lady. The moto is to protect & serve.
