• A woman called 911 last night to tell police that after she struck her teenage daughter in the face, the daughter struck her back. The 15-year-old girl was arrested and booked into the Lewis County Juvenile Detention Center for fourth-degree assault, according to the Chehalis Police Department. Even though they both (allegedly) hit each other, parents have certain rights to carrying out physical discipline but children do not have similar rights, detective Sgt. Gary Wilson said.
• Police were called about 6:40 p.m. yesterday to the 1000 block of B Street in Centralia to take a report of a stolen wedding ring.
COMMOTION AT CHEHALIS PARK STILL MYSTERIOUS
• Chehalis police are still trying to sort out an alleged attempted robbery from Sunday night at Stan Hedwall Park. A woman called 911 about 7:49 p.m. and said a stranger tried to take her car keys and that she was knocked down and kicked, according to the Chehalis Police Department. However, not everyone involved is making themselves available to be interviewed, detective Sgt. Gary Wilson said. It appears there were two groups of people, he said, with a “couple of females” at the park on Rice Road and then a “couple of males” who showed up. When officers arrived, one male fled and the other was already gone, he said. “I’ve got nothing concrete yet,” Wilson said.
• The Lewis County Sheriff’s Office yesterday said the duck hunters involved in the incident the morning before in which pellets from bird shot landed on a vehicle and a person in the area of Southwest Sylvenus Street in Chehalis were not cited, but were warned of “better practices”. They were on a pond on private property off the Hillberger and Shorey roads area and fired at a duck overhead, according to Chief Deputy Stacy Brown. The person hit with one of the pellets was on the Rails to Trails trail in the same area, Brown said. There were no injuries to the person and no damage to car, according to Brown. “Of course we would prefer that hunters not shoot at all in areas where there are other people but in this case they heeded our advice and there were no further issues,” Brown said.
• Morton police reported yesterday two juveniles were caught smoking marijuana a week and a half ago at the the 400 block of Main Avenue.
ON THE ROAD, OFF THE ROAD
• Morton police reported yesterday officers responded to Main Street to an accident a week ago Monday at 2:49 p.m. A Lewis County deputy’s vehicle was damaged by another car backing out of a driveway, according to police. No one was injured and the accident is being handled through the Washington State Patrol.
• And as usual, other incidents such as arrests for warrants, probation violation, obstructing, trespassing, disorderly conduct, misdemeanor assault; responses for alarm, dispute, loose dogs, misdemeanor theft, malicious mischief, suspicious circumstances, collision on city street … and more.
