Niagara Falls

ARREST: A Falls woman was arrested after allegedly soliciting a police officer at 9:45 p.m. Friday in the vicinity of Main Street and Ashland Avenue. Nina Allen, 30, 819 Sunny Side Drive, was charged with prostitution after police said she flagged down an officer occupying an unmarked car wearing plain clothes. According to the reports, she solicited him for sex and when he revealed he was a police officer, she apologized and said she was just trying to earn money to get home.

SHOTS FIRED: Police responded to a report of shots fired at 2 a.m. Saturday in the 400 block of Fourth Street. Upon arrival, police spoke with a 20-year-old woman who had locked herself in her residence and wouldn't come out. She said her boyfriend was not home and might have a shotgun. Officers reportedly stopped the boyfriend and a friend of his in a traffic stop and asked him about the incident. He said he and the woman had gotten into an argument but he did not have a shotgun. He was reportedly advised not to return to the residence Saturday.

BURGLARY: Police are investigated a reported burglary which occurred between 9 and 11 p.m. Friday in the 3300 block of Ninth Street. The victim, a 23-year-old woman, told officers she left her apartment with a friend of hers still inside and when she returned, a television from her living room, a spare television from a closet, her purse containing $500 cash and an XBox game system were missing. According to police, there was no sign of forced entry.

BURGLARY: Police and Falls Fire Department officials responded to a reported attempted burglary which occurred between 8:15 a.m. and 4:36 p.m. Friday in the 1500 block of Niagara Street. The victim, a 57-year-old man, was reportedly informed the door to his residence was open while he was working. Upon arrival, police were informed a gas line inside the house had been severed and fire officials required police protection to ensure no suspects remained inside. When they entered, officers reported seeing many of the house’s belongings smashed or destroyed. They located the hot water tank, which had its gas line cut. Earlier in the day, officers responded to a reported fight at 4:20 p.m. at Pine Avenue and 10th Street. Police arrested Thomas Pembleton, 34, 901 Cedar Ave., and charged him with disorderly conduct after he repeated threats at fighting people. After transporting Pembleton to headquarters, he reportedly confessed to breaking into the home and attempting to burn it, saying the victim's son messed him up previously in a fight and gave him post-traumatic stress disorder. It's believed by police the man Pembleton was fighting was also involved in the incident after officers found several items reported missing from the victim's house inside his coat at the scene.
