• 7/20 – 5500 block of Skimmer Point Blvd S.: Officers were dispatched early on July 20 after a resident returned home from a bike ride and discovered two teenagers who had just broken into two of his vehicles. The resident chased one of the teens out the back gate and confronted him, and the teen punched him in the eye. He was located on 27th Ave. S. and arrested for vehicle burglary and battery on a person over 65. He is currently on felony probation for burglary.
