Friday at about 9 p.m., police responded to a 911 call from a woman who said her grandson had pepper sprayed her.
Officers arrived at the 800 block of West Donovan Road, surrounded the home, closed off the street, and then unsuccessfully tried to coax the suspect out of the house. At 12:30 a.m., police gave up and reopened the road.
Police officials decided to send a report of the incident to the district attorney’s office to see if prosecutors want to press charges. If so, there will be a warrant issued for the suspect’s arrest.
