About 11 p.m. an officer responded to a residence in the 500 block of Gidding for a report of harassment.

A woman said her former boyfriend had been calling her repeatedly, even though she asked him to stop.

She said he had been arrested in February for stalking her and was out on bond.

While the officer was taking the report, the man called again.

The officer spoke to him on the phone and advised him to stop calling the woman and he started crying on the phone and asked if he was going to go to jail, then hung up. A few minutes later, he called again but the woman did not answer his call.

The officer noted intent to obtain a warrant for the man’s arrest.

About 4 p.m. April 15 an officer responded to an undisclosed location for a possible child molestation.

A social worker said she had received an anonymous tip a child in the home had been sexually abused.

The officer interviewed the mother of the children and learned the woman had seen possible signs of abuse in one of her four children after she returned home from visitation at her father’s house.

The woman said the children’s father told her he believed the child’s minor aged cousins may have been responsible for the assault.
