On 8/26/2016 at 9:06 AM, officers were dispatched to the area of N. Terrace Ave. and Laurel Ave. for the report of three subjects fighting in the street. When patrol officers arrived they received information that one subject had been armed with a rifle. A coordinated response by Patrol officers, detectives, and officers from our Street Crimes Unit enabled us to locate all subjects involved. The investigation determined that Robert and William See were involved in an argument and minor physical altercation with James Heise at N. Washington Ave. and Laurel Ave. because of a traffic incident. After the initial disturbance, Heise drove to 1112 W. Wall St and retrieved a pellet rifle from the residence of an acquaintance. Heise relocated Robert and William walking at N. Terrace St and Laurel Ave. Heise confronted Robert and William and displayed the rifle to them while making threatening comments. Heise got back in his vehicle and returned to 1112 W. Wall St. A consent search of 1112 W. Wall St was completed and the pellet gun was located. After interviewing all involved, Heise, Robert See, and William See were arrested and released with a court date.

Arrests:
James G. Heise M/W, Age 24,
