At 10:12 a.m., Sitteruiet Taylor of Newark ran the red light at the intersection of Thornton Avenue and Cherry Street and broadsided a vehicle, causing minor injuries to the driver of the other vehicle. The suspect then attempted to flee on foot with a group of junior high school-aged girls and their mothers who had been hosting a car wash at the intersection chasing after him. Responding units located the suspect a few blocks away where he was arrested.
At 8:32 p.m., NPD units were detailed to the area of Olive/Graham on what was first reported as a shooting; ultimately it was learned that a stabbing had occurred. Officers stopped a vehicle fleeing the scene and arrested James Shultz. As of this writing, the victim is recovering after surgery.
At 10:05 p.m., a female victim was walking from the parking lot to her residence in the 6100 block of Thornton Avenue (Foxwood) when a suspect rode by on a bicycle and grabbed her inappropriately. The suspect was described as a Hispanic male adult, 21-22 years of age, skinny build, about 5'7", short black colored hair, dark colored eyes, dark complexion and wearing a white colored tight fitted t-shirt.
A local hospital called NPD at 10:07 p.m. to report that a 33-year-old female was admitted for severe burns. Kaiser asked that NPD check the area of the EZ-8 Motel for the subject's vehicle, because they thought she may have been involved in an auto accident. It was later learned that the subject's burns were actually caused by stripping copper wire. The subject was transferred to a local burn unit. At the time of this writing the location of this incident had not been established. Investigation is on-going.
