Boyfriend fires gun at neighbor
NORCROSS - A jealous boyfriend on Sunday fired a gunshot into the wall of his girlfriend's Northglen Apartment at 4083 Northridge Way.
A 28-year-old man told police his neighbor, a young woman, came to his apartment to get his help removing a lizard from inside her bedroom. While the pair were attempting to corral the lizard with a plastic bucket, a broom and a baseball bat, the woman's boyfriend came home. Although she reportedly tried to explain the situation, the boyfriend suspected she was sleeping with the neighbor.
He went to a closet, retrieved a handgun and fired a shot into the wall behind the neighbor, a police report stated. The boyfriend left the apartment in his girlfriend's vehicle before police arrived.
The bullet pierced the wall and an exterior gutter. An officer said several people were placed in danger when the gun was fired, because another apartment complex was a few hundred feet down range.
Robber takes man's wallet, SUV
DULUTH - A Duluth man was carjacked Tuesday at Gwinnett Crossing Apartments at 3710 Satellite Blvd.
The victim was sitting in his 1992 Ford Explorer reading mail when the suspect walked up and put a pistol to his neck. The suspect ordered the victim to get out of the vehicle and lay on the ground, according to a police report.
The robber then took the wallet from the victim's pocket and drove out of the apartment complex in the stolen sport utility vehicle. The victim ran to a friend's car, and the pair chased the suspect into downtown Atlanta before losing sight of the SUV. The suspect was described as a black man about 6 feet tall wearing a black T-shirt.
Motorcyclist faces 100mph ticket
SUWANEE - A 23-year-old Suwanee man was arrested last week after a police helicopter tracked him riding a motorcycle at more than 100 mph down Interstate 85 North, according to a police report.
A Gwinnett police helicopter allegedly spotted the motorcyclist weaving through traffic at excessive speeds and followed the suspect as he exited on Sugarloaf Parkway. An off-duty officer in the area heard the motorcyclist was in the area and offered to make the traffic stop.
The driver, Joseph Daniel Bible, initially pretended he didn't know what the officer was talking about when confronted about speeding, the police report stated. The officer pointed to the sky and told Bible the helicopter hovering overhead was a police helicopter that had been following him since I-85. Bible reportedly looked down and replied "What can I say to that?"
He was cited for speeding 100 mph in a 65 mph zone and making unsafe lane changes.
