Belleville blotter: Suspect offers help, yells expletives at woman waiting for bus

August 8, 2013 

— The following report appeared in the most recently released crime blotter by the Belleville Police Department:


10:50 p.m. SUSPICIOUS INCIDENT - 9700 block of W. Main St. The victim, a 23-year-old female, reported that while she was standing at the bus stop a blue or black Ford Crown Victoria, very shiny with a spot light on either the driver side or passenger side turned on to S. 98th Street. She stated that the registration started with "M." The male driver asked if she needed help, she told him no and waved him on. The subject backed his vehicle on to W. Main Street and yelled, "(Expletive), if someone asks you if you need help, you better take it." The victim started to call 911. The suspect reached down as though he was going to take off his seatbelt. The victim fled on foot from the roadway and called 911. The suspect yelled, "(Expletive) I ain't doing nothing to you," and left the area driving east on W. Main Street. Officers searched the area with negative results.

Readers are reminded that an arrest or charge does not constitute a finding of guilt. Only a court of law can make that determination. For more police blotter news, read tomorrow's print edition of the Belleville News-Democrat and return to
