Halloween is nearly three months away and there was no full moon, but things were a little batty in Strongsville last weekend.
A driver on I-71 called police to report a bat had flown into her car about 2:30 a.m. Aug. 4; she had pulled over and was afraid to get back in the car. The responding officer removed the dead bat from the driver's dashboard, and sent the driver on her way.
A drive-through customer at a bank at 17300 Royalton Rd. told police at about 11 p.m. Aug. 4 a bat was hanging down and worried it might bite someone. Police found a small black bat clinging to a brick wall. The report did not say if the responding officer sent the bat on its way.
A resident on the 18800 block of Fallingwater Road told police her roommate has been cornering her and threatening her, and she wanted to press charges. Police gave him a misdemeanor citation at about 11 p.m. Aug. 4.
• A resident of the 17200 block of Greenbrier Drive told police on Aug. 3 she had been receiving harassing phone calls for several days, swearing at her and asking what kind of security she had. When police called the number, it was out of service. The resident was advised to contact her phone service provider about the incident.
• A resident of the 11800 block of Pearl Road told police on Aug. 3 a woman was sending unwanted calls and text messages asking him for drugs. Police told the woman the Pearl Road resident would press charges if she didn't stop.
