Police Blotter: Man Robbed at Knifepoint After Online Chat Lures Him to Apartment

Also, Lakewood police respond to disorderly conduct, dangerous drugs and suspicious person at Congressman's office.

A man told that he was robbed of $350 at knifepoint Feb. 10 after he was lured to an apartment building in 12000 block of Clifton Avenue.

The man said he met who he thought was a woman online, but when he went to meet her, there were two men who held a butcher knife to him and robbed him — before punching him in the eye. No charges have been filed.


There were several reports on Feb. 11 of two teenage boys throwing chunks of ice on passing cars in Lakewood near the intersection of Franklin Blvd. and Grace Avenue. A woman first reported the incidents around 9 p.m. There was another report a short time later in the same area. And another after 10 p.m. Police were unable to locate the suspected ice throwers.

Disorderly conduct

A woman in the 1400 block of Wyandotte Avenue was cited for disorderly conduct around 2 p.m. Feb. 12 after police received a call that the woman was “destroying the house” with a broomstick.

Dangerous drugs

A woman in an apartment building in the 11800 block of Lake Avenue was charged with dangerous drugs at 1 p.m. Feb. 15. She was charged after police and EMS crews responded to call of a man who overdosed on heroin — and found her in possession of the drugs.

Suspicious person

The janitor at US Rep. Dennis Kucinich’s office told police that someone tried to enter the Congressman’s office without permission at around 2 p.m. Feb. 16. Police were unable to locate the man.


A woman in the 1300 block of Sloane Avenue told police Feb. 17 that her neighbor stole her cat. The case was originally reported more than three months before, and both neighbors were told the issue is a civil matter.

Anyone believing what they read online is an idiot, although in this case I doubt his brain was activated.
