Hill called police from a pay phone outside of Grand’s Food Store to advise that three or four black males at the intersection of Jones and Central streets assaulted him. Hill advised that he knew one of the suspects by the alias of “Black.”
Hill advised that he was riding his moped on Jones Street when the males approached him. “Black” asked him how much he wanted for the moped, and then pulled out “several pieces of crack.” Hill told him that was not enough for the moped, at which time he was punched in the face and fell to the ground.
Police then patrolled the area with Hill in an attempt to possibly recognize the individuals involved.
Hill exited the patrol unit at the intersection of Jones and Central streets. According to reports, he walked west on Central Street using profanity toward every person he came in contact with. He also attempted to start a fight by getting in one person’s face and using an ethnic slur followed by more profanity.
The officer advised Hill to calm down and stop using such language. Hill continued to yell profanity and was then arrested for disorderly conduct.
Four patrol units checked the area sometime later to try and locate the suspects from the original crime, but negative contact was made. The moped was described as red in color, and valued at $200.
