April 1: A Bacon Road man told police his juvenile stepson ran away between 1 and 1:30 p.m. After the officer left the man’s residence and headed back to the police station, he saw a juvenile walking down the road who matched the stepson’s description. The juvenile said he was not the stepson and didn’t know him. After the officer returned to the station, the man called and said his stepson had returned. The officer went back to the residence to conclude the call and recognized the stepson as the juvenile he’d seen walking down the road. The juvenile was charged with obstruction for lying to an officer and released to his stepfather’s custody.

Officers responded to a possible domestic violence call on Mandarin Drive, where a woman said she took her daughter’s cell phone because the girl, a minor, would not get ready for church. The mother said the girl jumped on her back, tried to take the phone back and left scratches on her forearms. The girl’s sister tried to break them up, and the mother ran into the bathroom and locked the girl’s phone up. The responding officer did observe scratches on the mother’s left and right forearms and left shoulder. The minor suspect was not charged.

Officers responded to an armed robbery call at Subway on Highway 196. One worker said he was behind the counter at 9:49 p.m., preparing to close the store while a second employee waited in the lobby when a short, heavy set man entered the restaurant carrying a black “uzi”-type weapon. The employee said the suspect was wearing a bandana over his face, black shorts and a black T-shirt. The suspect forced the second employee into the walk-in refrigerator and threatened to shoot the first employee as he removed cash from the register and safe. The man took approximately $1,500, ran out the back door of the eatery and drove off in a small, dark-colored SUV. The restaurant employees called police. Detectives photographed the tire tracks and shoe prints around where the vehicle had been parked.
