Niagara Falls
• VANDALISM: Police are investigating what appears to be related vandalism incidents in the South End. Between 9 p.m. Tuesday and 7 a.m. Wednesday three people living in the 2700 block of Niagara Street, the 2700 block of Livingston Avenue and 3000 block of Orleans Avenue, reported that someone had spray painted the side of their cars. In each case, black spray paint was used. In one instance, the words “Yo Mama” were spray painted on the vehicle.

• ARREST: A Falls man was arrested after he assaulted a police officer while being transported from city court to the city jail. Paul Kasprzycki, 60, 1023 Ferry Ave., was charged with third-degree assault. Kasprzycki created a disturbance during an appearance in city court at 10:18 a.m. Wednesday and was removed from the courtroom. As he was being taken back to the jail, he began using racial slurs toward other prisoners and then attempted to grab an officer by the throat. Officers were able to restrain Kasprzycki and return him to his cell.

• THEFT: Officers are looking into an SUV break-in on Buffalo Avenue. A tourist told police that sometime between 10:30 and 11 a.m. Wednesday someone entered her unlocked 2003 Chevy Suburban and took her purse.

• ARREST: A Falls man was arrested after police found him in possession of items taken in a burglary. Officers said they were investigating a harassment complaint at an apartment building in the 700 block of Eight Street at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday. They said when they interviewed the suspect, Steven Heylek, they saw two totes inside his apartment and electronic equipment and clothes taken in a burglary of another apartment in the building. Heylek, 31, 714 Eight St., Apt. 2, was charged with second-degree burglary, fourth-degree criminal mischief, fifth-degree criminal possession of stolen property and petit larceny.

• THEFT: A Youngstown-Lockport Road man reported Wednesday to Niagara County Sheriff’s deputies that two 2008 Kawasaki all-terrian vehicles were missing from his property. The two ATVs are valued at $7,500, the report said. The victim reported a metal lock on the shed that housed one of the ATVs was broken in half, while the other ATV was missing from its spot in the victim’s temporary carport. A member of the victim’s family heard the ATVs being started up at about 2:43 a.m., but thought it was a member of the family taking them for a ride, which wouldn’t have been out of the ordinary, the victim said.
City of Tonawanda
