• ROBBERY: Police are investigating a reported robbery which happened at 8:30 p.m. Friday in an apartment in the 1900 block of Cudaback Avenue. The victim, a 36-year-old man, said he entered his apartment and was met by a man standing next to the door, who threw him into a nearby chair and held a knife to his throat.
