2:03 p.m. A woman living on Madison Avenue said a tire on her car was slashed.

The woman has had poor relations with her neighbor. The week before, she called police about a man banging on her neighbor’s door. She thought the tire was slashed in retaliation for calling the police the week before.

4:26 p.m. A woman told police that she was being harassed via the telephone by a man in California.

A few weeks prior, the woman was staying at a condo in Mexico that is owned by a relative. Her dog got into a fight with a neighbor’s dog in the condominium complex. Since then, the neighbor has been calling repeatedly and insisting that she pay for the vet bills. The neighbor had called six times that day starting at 6:30 a.m.

Each time he called, his language became more “colorful” the woman said. She suspected he was intoxicated.

Police advised her of her options, which included changing her phone number to getting an anti-harassment order.
