- A woman entered the offices of the Perry Police Department at 908 Willis Ave. and said her mother, “who is elderly and does not speak English,” was cooking when a “lady” from a nearby business “went to their apartment and made gestures to her mother that she did not like the smell of the food.” She said “the lady was very rude” and “shoved her mother back into the house by closing the door.” She said the lady later “came back up to try and give her a soda.” She said a worker from another nearby business “showed up and told her to leave her mother alone.” She said the worker “took the soda from her and waited for her to leave.” An officer responded and talked with the “lady,” who said she “did try to speak with her neighbor and try to get her to stop cooking during business hours.” The “lady” said she “did not try to upset her and tried to smooth things over by giving her a soda.” The officer advised the lady to bring up future complaints with the landlord “and he could take care of them.”

- A caller said when he dropped off his 1-year-old son with the child’s mother, she “was intoxicated.” He now asked that an officer of the Perry Police Department check the welfare of the child.
