Woman Threatened By Caller, Her Tires Punctured With 8 Holes

An arrest is merely an accusation, not evidence of a conviction.

Police responded Nov. 23 to a 22-year-old woman who said she had received two threatening phone calls from an unknown male, even though she had a new phone number and only friends and family had it. Additionally, she had found that one of the tires on her vehicle, parked in her driveway, had eight punctures in it. The phone calls came just after 2 a.m. She told police she had been dating a 21-year-old man and broke up, but that the relationship did not end badly, and he did not have her new phone number. She requested a special watch on her home.
