Police blotter —

Samplings of recent calls received by Clovis-area law enforcement officers, according to reports:

Around 4 p.m. Feb. 10 an officer responded to an undisclosed residence for a report of criminal sexual contact of a minor.

A 15-year-old girl said a girl from school arranged for her friend to give her a ride home so she met the male, who she had never seen before, in a parking lot at 14th and Mitchell streets.

She said the male drove her to her house but locked the doors and touched her inappropriately. Once the car stopped she said she opened the door and got away.

She gave the officer a description of the male and his vehicle.


About 3 p.m. Feb. 11 an officer responded to a business in the 2000 block of west 21st Street for a report of harassment.

A woman said she found a pair of female underwear on the back door of the office.

She said she was concerned because women’s underwear have previously been left on her vehicle and for more than a year she had been receiving calls at the office asking her if she was alone.

The officer advised her a report would be written for informational purposes since there was no suspect information.


Around 5 a.m. Feb. 12 officers responded to a business in the 1500 block of Mabry Drive for a report of a female bleeding and screaming.

A female was found on the floor of the business with blood smeared on herself and the floor and an ambulance was called.

The woman later told officers she went to a nearby hotel with another female and a male that was in the room demanded she have sex with him.

When she refused, she said he started hitting her so she pulled out her knife to defend herself but he took it from her and started cutting her with it.

Medical personnel at the hospital said the woman had cuts to two of her fingers, one of which was nearly severed.

At the hotel room identified by the woman, officers found the knife and blood evidence which was collected and documented.


About 7 a.m. Feb. 12 an officer responded to the emergency room at the hospital in the 2100 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard for a report of injuries from a hit and run.

A 28-year-old man said he was struck by a vehicle while he was walking near the intersections of Rencher and 10th streets.

He said he was walking against traffic and a vehicle struck him from the front, then backed up and drove off.

The officer documented the man had pain in his leg, back, hand and head.
