May 3, 2018 For Immediate Release On 5/1/2018, members of the Adrian Police Department were dispatched to the 600 block of E Maumee St to investigate a stabbing. Witnesses in the area reported seeing a man running down E Maumee St. covered in blood. When officers arrived, they located a 26 year old Weston man who had sustained a significant laceration and a puncture wound to his upper back. He was transported to Toledo Hospital via helicopter where he was treated and later released. Officers on scene were able to determine that the stabbing was related to a nearby residence and a search warrant was executed. Evidence was collected from inside that residence and additional leads are being pursued. A suspect in this case was developed and has been taken into custody. The name of the suspect is being withheld pending arraignment. The Adrian Police Department would like to thank the Clinton Police Department for their assistance in apprehending the suspect. APD would also like to thank our local media outlets for their patience as this sensitive case was investigated. We ask that anyone with additional information about this incident contact Detective LaMar Rufner at (517)264-4834.

We receive many questions about why the City restricts on-street parking between 3am and 6am: The 3-6am parking ordinance is a very effective tool in reducing the opportunity for criminal activity. When cars are parked in the street they become more susceptible to break-ins, vandalism, or to being stolen. These cars become potential crash targets for drunk drivers. In addition, cars parked in the street late at night provide cover for criminals to park their getaway cars while they commit crimes in our city. Also, if the streets are clear it aids our ability to catch criminals escaping on foot or in a car because of the improved lines of sight that are created. The ban on 3-6am on street parking also reduces the number of abandoned or disabled vehicles left in the street that contribute to neighborhood blight. A car parked on street for several nights will be noticed, and action can then be taken to remove it. As a police department we try to be proactive in our efforts to reduce crime by eliminating the opportunities for criminals to victimize our residents. This ordinance is a preventative measure. If cars are parked in the garage or a well lit driveway it reduces the attractiveness of committing a crime because of the potential of being observed. The ordinance does accommodate households that have more cars than what will physically fit on their property and for temporary special circumstances. Obviously, these cars are susceptible to all the crimes described above, so on-street overnight parking permits are a choice of last resort.
