7:29 p.m. An apartment resident on High School Road called police after his neighbor threw a strawberry shortcake at him.

The incident occurred while multiple neighbors were eating together in a common area. The man came outside, picked up various toys, walked up to a little girl and told her to “keep your [expletive] out of my yard.”

He told police that he frequently found her toys in front of his apartment.

Soon, the girl’s mother knocked on the man’s door and yelled at him for what he did and also used “unflattering gay slurs.” She then left.

Later, in the common area with their neighbors, the two began arguing again. She told the man to get off her yard and threw strawberry shortcake at him.

Police informed the two that the common area was nobody’s yard.
