Police blotter

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

A 16-year-old Clovis woman came with her grandmother to the police department on Jan. 2 to report that a 22-year-old man had been having sex with her for about half a year, beginning when she was 15.
The woman said the sexual activity was sometimes consensual and sometimes not, and that the man began to harass her after she became pregnant. Police advised her on the procedures to obtain a restraining order.

Police found and stopped the vehicle in a grocery store parking lot. A passenger admitted to having a BB gun and marijuana in the car and said they were his. The driver’s mother arrived during the traffic stop and gave consent to have the car searched. The passenger said he was going to sell the marijuana to support his family.

About 5:30 p.m. on Jan. 3, Clovis police responded to the 900 block of Edwards for a battery report.
A 16-year-old male resident said he was in his basement when a 15-year-old male he knew from other contacts ran into his house screaming about blood and carrying a baseball bat. When the 16-year-old ordered him out of the house, the 15-year-old said, “You started the game and I’m going to finish it and you look like a character in the game.” After a verbal altercation, the 15-year-old hit the resident on the head with the baseball bat and left.
Several witnesses confirmed the report to police and a later report indicated that the bat-wielding man had pushed a 14-year-old female into a wall and threatened a 14-year-old male with the bat but did not hit him.
