A 911 hangup call Thursday night led to the transporting of a young city resident to an area hospital, according to city police.
The incident was reported shortly before 7 p.m. Thursday on Orchard Road, and the police log notes a dangerousness notice will be filed with the state Department of Children and Families about the situation.
Police, however, declined to release more information on the grounds that the incident involved a juvenile.
A man was reportedly found asleep in the doorway of an apartment complex on Western Avenue around 6:30 p.m. Thursday. Police said the man was asked to leave the building, and a cab was called to take him home.
Hours later, at 9:48 p.m. police were called to a Railroad Avenue business to assist staffers with the same man, who had no known address. The police report states the man claimed he was the drummer for the band “Whitesnake,” but a check of records regarding that 1980s metal band indicated that’s not true.
The man was transported to Addison Gilbert Hospital for evaluation.
A Wheeler Street man received a phone call that prompted him to call police.
According to police, the man reported that around 8 p.m., he got a call from a person saying there was a bomb in his computer. The man, however, told police that he does not have a computer.
