Bizarre crimes from Charlotte police files



POOP HAPPENS: A 59-year-old man who lives on the 200 block of Cherokee Road said someone has been defecating and urinating on his pool house every day for the past week. He said poop and pee stains have been left on the wood surface of his pool house and they will not come out. He said the incident happens at night when he is sleeping.

FAMILY MATTERS: A 44-year-old woman who lives on the 8000 block of Tendring Court said for the past week one of her family members has called her every day threatening to kill her. She said the last time her relative called, he said, "I will kill you and your boyfriend! Don't make me come to your house in the middle of the night because I know where you live."

VOICEMAIL HARRASSMENT: A 23-year-old woman said a former male acquaintance of hers made several harassing calls to her place of employment. She said each time he called and left a threatening message on her work voicemail. The last message he left said, "Bitch, I'm going to come to your job and beat your ass." Even though he said it, she doesn't believe he'll actually carry out the threat.

BITE MARKS: An officer was doing a routine investigation of an occupied vehicle that was parked on the 6000 block of Countryside Drive. When he pulled up behind the vehicle, a man sitting in the driver's seat jumped out and started to run. The officer began chasing the man and called for backup. Other officers arrived to the scene and helped the first officer make the arrest. After the man was placed in handcuffs, he bit the officer on the left hand. When another officer stepped in to assist, the man then bit him on the right bicep. The first officer was not seriously injured, but the second officer was and was taken to Urgent Care for treatment.

NIGHTMARE ROOMMATE: A 35-year-old woman who lives on the 4000 block of Arching Oak Lane called 911 to report that her roommate was threatening her. But after learning that she couldn't get her roommate kicked out of their apartment, she refused to give the 911 officer any more information and hung up.
