This happened in March and the 114 is investigating now? That seems about the appropriate response time for that precinct.


Looks like a personal vendetta with someone else. I couldn’t care less to report this.


Moral of the story. Don’t start with anybody because you don’t know if they carry a gun, blade or bat!
