Grass Valley Police Department


• At 3:02 p.m., a woman reported that while walking her dog on Kidder Avenue, she came upon several youths who were doing something strange to dead animals. When the dog grabbed something, the woman reported, a boy pulled out a gun and told her he would shoot her. When she got home, the woman said, she noticed her dog had a dead cat head in its mouth. Officers found no evidence to corroborate the woman’s story.

• A caller on the 500 block of Butler Street reported that he heard someone screaming and went outside to find a woman lying in the street.

Police contacted the woman, who said she was just having an argument with herself.
