Dispatch received multiple calls of loud music and excessive vehicle traffic at the Hindu Temple on Delaware Dr. in Irvington. Sgt. OÕConnell responded and found that the temple was having an un-permitted event with an attendance of 1,500-2,000 people. It was estimated that over 1,000 vehicles were parked throughout the residential area with some blocking residential driveways and utilizing the school without permission. The event organizer agreed (after multiple warnings) to lower the music and requested that attendees move vehicles that were illegally parked. The event ended at 3:00 p.m. and we had to provide nine officers to assist with traffic control. Sergeants OÕConnell and Snelson managed the incident. Due to lack of appropriate space and parking, events of this magnitude have been denied at this location in the past.
A female victim called to claim that she had been accosted and beaten by two females who then took her dog from her purse and went into the Florence bar. The suspects had already fled the area by the time we arrived. We determined that the victim had been in an argument with the ÒsuspectsÓ prior to the incident. The victim soon became uncooperative and walked away from us as we attempted to complete the report.
