“Dear PoPville,

The incident happened last night at 10 pm in front of the corner store at Warder and Otis. I heard someone running close and saw a short black male holding a giant stick or plank. He didn’t pass me by and just looked around a bit. I tried to cross the street to get away and he swung at my shoulder. He then had the weapon back up for defense and I ran home. There was no conversation between us.”

Ed. Note: The police were called but were unable to find the assailant.

“Dear PoPville,

A friend from out of town had his car broken into at Sherman and Lamont. They stole a backpack out of his trunk that, unbeknownst to the morons that took it, had nothing but slack line gear that’ll be of no use to them unless they fancy rock climbing.”

If you happen to see it please email [email protected] and I’ll put you in touch with OP.
