Police blotter: “disturbing the peace” at The Union

Here’s a surprising item from the Grass Valley police blotter (a public record) on Wednesday:

“Date/time: 10/20/2009 10:06
“Location: 464 Sutton Way

“Multiple reports advising of an employee who was just assaulted by a male subject wearing a red sweatshirt. Male subject has now left in a (car) headed left onto Sutton toward Brunswick.

“Contact made at The Union who declined CA (citizen’s arrest). Contact made with (a person’s name), who was admonished not to return or face (trespassing charges).”

I inquired with the Grass Valley Police, who would not elaborate — for the record.

This is not an everyday occurrence for any business here.

I hope The Union will elaborate for our community — if they are part of the story. What would prompt this?

UPDATE: I plan to delete all responses, except ones from people who were directly involved beyond the police blotter item here or from other public documents or communications. Or if the police decide to go “on the record.” In this case, I think it’s the responsible thing to do.

Some more thoughts on this issue are here.
