Summit County police blotter: Punches thrown in fight over boy
November 11, 2012
Editor’s note: The police blotter is written from incident reports provided by local police departments and the Summit County Sheriff’s Office. All individuals named are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
A juvenile girl was charged with assault Oct. 29, after she allegedly attacked another girl, whom she believed was having an “inappropriate” relationship with her boyfriend.
The suspect reportedly punched the victim several times in the face and chest and pulled her hair on a bus at the Silverthorne Transfer Center, according to a report from the Silverthorne Police Department.
The victim, whose face was red and bloody and who was missing large chunks of her hair, said the bus driver told the two girls to leave and she quickly boarded another bus to avoid further injury, the report stated.
Break-in attempt fails at Breckenridge retailer
An unidentified suspect was unsuccessful when he reportedly tried to break into a Breckenridge retail store Nov. 4 using a shovel.
A nearby tenant reported seeing a man using a shovel trying to pry one of the shop’s side windows open at approximately midnight the night before, according to a report from the Breckenridge Police Department.
The witness told police he got up to investigate the situation when his dog started barking and saw the suspect by the window. He yelled at the person, who he described as a thin male between 5’10” and 6’2″ wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, asking what he was doing, according to the police report.
The witness said he found the shovel where the suspect had been standing.
Other residents in the area said they hadn’t seen anything out of the ordinary.
Authorities were unable to retrieve fingerprints from the window or the shovel, according to the report.
Man puts up fight during arrest
A man was charged with resisting arrest and violating bond conditions Nov. 1 after he became combative when authorities tried to take him into custody after catching him in violation of a protection order.
Deputies placed the man under arrest after pulling over a car he was riding in, which was driven by one of the individuals protected by the order, according to a report released by the Summit County Sheriff’s Office.
The report states that the man resisted when the officers tried to put him in handcuffs, “moving around, trying to pull away and jumping up and down.”
When authorities tried to readjust the handcuffs, the man jumped again, ripping the cuff key through one deputy’s glove and into his hand, according to the report.
The deputy then took the man to the ground, where he allegedly continued to kick, scream and “turn onto his side in an attempt to prevent his arrest by using force,” the report states.
Once in the patrol car, the man kicked the rear window of the vehicle and repeatedly hit his head against it.
The man was charged with violation of a protection order, violation of felony bond conditions and resisting arrest.
The man was previously arrested on Oct. 16 on a charge of distributing marijuana.
