Teens on Bikes Stealing Phones from Women [Video]

Unusual arrests and investigations from the area.

 

Trumbull Police said a Trumbull man allegedly had a machete strapped to his waist and was seen dumping brush on public property. He had been warned about the machete before, police said, since it's illegal to carry a knife with a blade of more than four inches long.

When confronted, he was reportedly uncooperative and his mother allegedly interfered as officers tried to arrest him. She is charged with interfering with police and breach of the peace.

Another Trumbull man claimed a car sped by him as he used his leafblower. He then allegedly approached the car with the leafblower, and was charged with reckless endangerment.

Craig- Let's talk about mean things that people do, especially teens on bikes stealing phones from women, about the women taking it back & other mean stufff back.

I meant stuff.

Im sorry justin, I dont know what you mean... Women taking it back and other mean stuff back? If you are referring to my coment about the woman chasing him on the bike and hittimg him would be a mean thing to do im sorry you disagree. I think it would be a fitting thing to do, obviously alot of teens today have never had to face any consequences for their actions, maybe if more people stood up and fought back, there would be less crime. But, if that wasnt what you meant, im sorry about the rant.. lol

Craig: that's OK with me. I meant woman (1) taking it back. And Craig, I meant yes, Craig, yes, doing other mean stuff to the teen man for his punishment. Because that the woman ignored it, I'm pretty sure she'd be upset that she can't find her phone anywhere because the teen man stole it, though. Alright?
