  1. Someone better get the facts straight. The ex-girlfriend does not live or was staying with the caller, whom by the way is me. She came to my house uninvited and was trying to break my windows when my son didn’t want to talk to her. She also threatened me with assault when I told her to leave my property. So I called the police to have her leave. My son is only a guest at my house and didn’t invite the ex-girlfriend over. The ex-girlfriend came uninvited.

    • Thank you for clarifying. ThePerryNews.com summarizes and reports the police call records. We cannot verify the accuracy of the records. Here is a verbatim transcription of the narrative portion of the police call record of a call from “Melody Griffin”:

      “Reported her son’s girlfriend has been staying there. Melody wants her to leave. The girlfriend is refusing and is beating on the side of the home.

      “Officers Jans and Schuttler responded. Located (redacted) an address of Newton.

      “Melody’s son is an adult and (redacted) is his girlfriend. Advised (redacted) that Melody doesn’t want her there. A no-trespass order was not served since son lives there, he is an adult, and entitled to having a guest.

      “Situation calmed down. Son and girlfriend left the residence.”

      ThePerryNews.com reported a summary of this police call record narrative, and we believe our report is an accurate summary of the narrative. Once again, we cannot verify the accuracy of the original call record narrative itself, and we thank you for helping to set the record straight.

  2. Wow, that’s sad that the dispatch can’t get the facts or name right. Also, the PD didn’t understand the situation or only heard parts of it. I understand that the police are in a hurry to defuse the situation, but they didn’t get their facts straight. The ex-girlfriend came to my house to argue with my son . She was never in my house or living in my house or invited. She was arguing with my son out in my backyard, and he came into the house to get away from her, and she went to the front of my house and was hitting a picture window, saying she was going to break it if he didn’t come out to talk with her. I went to my front door and stood there and told her to leave my property, and she yelled at me and threatened me with assault. I called the police to have her removed from the premises.
