POLICE LOG: Crime in the news…

Blessed Are The Butter Eaters:

OCALA – Ocala police officers arrested a man Sunday morning who they say pulled a knife on members of a church congregation who would not give him butter in the morning buffet… When he could not get any, he pulled a knife on members of the congregation and said he would cut them.

As he put the knife back in his pocket, a church member hit him with a wooden board, Scroble said. Lewis then fled on a bicycle where officers in the area quickly caught him.

The Stripping Robber:

TOKYO – Japanese police have caught a serial handbag snatcher who was dubbed “the chameleon” after eluding arrest for years by stripping off as he fled the scenes of his crimes by bicycle.

Hiroshi Ishihara, a 42-year-old resident of Osaka, would wear three to five extra T-shirts or sweaters and take them off one by one as he fled, a police official said today.
