Samplings of recent calls received by Clovis-area law enforcement officers, according to reports:
About 8:30 a.m. Tuesday officers were called to a home in the 1700 block of Sheldon Street for a reported domestic situation. A woman told police she had argued with her husband over their children and he called her derogatory names and threw water and warm coffee on her. Upon speaking with the husband and children, the officers were told the man had thrown the water and coffee on her because she started pushing him. The officers placed the woman under arrest for battery on a household member.
Around 11 a.m. Wednesday an officer was called to a home in the 400 block of Main Street for a report of fraud. A woman said the day before, a man called her elderly mother and told her he worked for the state and needed her bank account and routing numbers to credit her for a check written on her account. The woman said her mother provided the numbers before she intercepted the call. She said they had closed the bank account to prevent a loss.
Around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday an officer was dispatched to a hotel in the 600 block of East First Street for a reported disturbance. A woman told them a man had knocked at the door of her room and walked in when she answered. She said she didn’t know him and asked him to leave several times. She said the man sat on the bed and used the phone to call a female, then laid down. The officers noted the man, lying on the bed when they arrived, seemed intoxicated. They placed him into custody for criminal trespass and transported him to the jail.
