On Feb. 14 at 9:16 p.m., Emory Police Department (EPD) responded to Emory University Hospital (EUH) in reference to a report of theft. The complainant said that her mother was transported from another facility to EUH on Feb. 13 around noon and was wearing two 14-karat white gold rings, but when the complainant saw her mother in EUH at around 5 p.m., her mother was not wearing the rings. The complainant spoke to a nurse who told her the rings were taken off of her mother’s fingers, placed in a plastic bag and taped to a white board. However, the hospital staff and the complainant were unable to locate the rings. The total value of both rings is $9,000. The case is under active investigation.
On Feb. 14 at 11:33 p.m., EPD conducted a vehicle pullover on Clifton Road in front of Wesley Woods Towers. At 11 p.m., an EPD officer observed a driver making a right turn onto Clifton Road from Emory Point while the light was red. EPD stopped the driver and explained to him that he was pulled over because he failed to obey the traffic rule that forbids right turns during a red light. The driver said that he was not aware that he was not allowed to make a right turn while at a red light at that location. The officer checked the subject’s Georgia driver’s license and found that his license had been suspended earlier that day. EPD took possession of the subject’s license and issued him a citation. The case was closed by arrest.
On Feb. 16 at 9:46 a.m., EPD responded to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) at Egleston Hospital in reference to a report of family violence battery and aggravated assault. The EPD officer was led by a CHOA security officer to meet with a male subject. The subject told the EPD officer that he woke up in the morning in his newborn child’s room at CHOA. The subject said he was looking for the mother of his newborn child, so he called her from the hospital phone and asked where she was in the hospital. The subject located the mother on the second floor in a sleep room and had a conversation with her that led to an altercation. The EPD officer met with the victim, who advised the officer that the subject had previously been violent toward her during her pregnancy. The victim also said that she was in the process of evicting the subject from her apartment. She said she got into an altercation with the subject earlier that morning that led to her requesting a sleep room so that she could be away from the subject. The victim said that at approximately 8 a.m. on Feb. 16, the subject called her asking where she was in the hospital. She told him where she was, and he came to her location and knocked on the door. The victim said she opened the door, and the subject slapped her face, which made her fall back, and closed the door to prevent her from leaving. The victim said that she threw water on the subject to defend herself, at which point the subject choked her and slammed her to the ground. The officer took photos of the victim’s injuries and established that EPD has enough probable cause to take the subject into custody. The subject was admitted into the Dekalb County Jail. The case was closed by arrest.
On Feb. 16 at 8:08 p.m., EPD responded to Harris Hall in reference to a report of simple battery. The complainant, an Emory student, said that on Feb. 13 at approximately 3 a.m., she was awakened by someone she knows “wrapping his arms around” her, which “startled [her] awake.” She stated that this occurred in her dorm room. The complainant stated that she does not know what happened before or after the incident. She stated that she thought the subject may have been drunk, but she was not sure. The case is under active investigation.
