Oct. 06--A barbecue was broken and a window smashed out.
Employees at Sprint and Rite Aid reported being threatened by disorderly customers.
An "out-of-town man" was reportedly looking for a fight with Washington State University fraternity members.
And that was just a small taste of the busy weekend for police in Pullman and Moscow. There were also numerous reports of trespassing, burglaries, malicious mischief and threatening.
The issues started Friday morning when Pullman police responded to a report of trespassing at a residence on Northwest True Street, where police said a 33-year-old man was allegedly refusing to leave his sister's home despite her requests to do so. Once officers showed up, he was reportedly more obliging.
Less than five hours later police and the man were back at the house. This time, police were called because the man returned and had broken a barbecue pit. He was arrested for alleged first-degree criminal trespassing and third-degree malicious mischief.
About 24 hours later Pullman police were dealing with another domestic disturbance. This time the alleged perpetrator was a 19-year-old woman who was allegedly bent on getting into her ex-boyfriend's home on the 1900 block of Northeast Terre View Drive. When she found the door locked, rather than leaving, she broke a window and attempted to climb inside. The alleged deeds got her a ticket to jail and she now faces charges of third-degree malicious mischief and residential burglary.
In the early morning hours Sunday, Pullman officers were called to the Greek Row area near the WSU campus for a report of a man allegedly entering fraternities and trying to start fights. Police said they received several reports about the 21-year-old man, described as an "out-of-town construction worker looking to beat up fraternity boys."
Police first contacted the man around 2:30 a.m. on Northeast Colorado Street near the Lamda Chi Alpha house and told him to leave the area, which he did -- temporarily. A little more than an hour later, he was located near the Sigma Alpha Epsilon house on Northeast California Street and was arrested for alleged first-degree criminal trespassing.
Over in Moscow, officers were dealing with reportedly unruly and threatening customers around the Palouse Mall on Sunday.
Employees at the Sprint store inside the Palouse Mall called police around 1 p.m. to report a woman reportedly acting disruptive toward staff and customers and allegedly threatening employees. The woman was contacted by police and told not to return.
Police were back at the mall about an hour later, this time at Rite Aid, where they responded to a report of a man making threatening comments toward employees. By the time police had arrived, the alleged suspect, described as a Hispanic male, had left. Employees were advised to immediately call police if the man returned.
