This week in the blotters
This week in Avon’s police logs: A North Long Road man was charged with hit/skip after Avon Police received a call at 8:30 p.m. on April 30 that a blue SUV driven by a man with white hair drove off the road, struck a tree and then fled the area. An off-duty officer then called in to report his neighbor may be following the vehicle. Why? Because the car drove into the neighbor's yard and barely missed hitting his child. Police were able to get a better description of the car: a dark blue Ford Edge missing a headlight. They were able to trace a car fitting that desciption to a North Long Road residence.

Online extortion and an argument in this week's blotters.
A man came into the Avon Police Department and reported he was on a website when he received an alert from the FBI that he was on an improper web site. The alert was actually a virus with the FBI logo and was requesting money so the virus could be lifted. The man was told that it was a common virus and he could call the FBI if he wanted, but he was best off going to a computer store to get the virus taken off. Also in this week’s police news: Man gets the boot from car on I-90 A woman who slammed on the brakes on I-90 got the attention of the man driving behind her when he almost slammed into her car in the high speed lane.

From the blotters: The following arrest information was supplied by the Avon Police Department. It does not indicate a conviction.
Police were called to a Center Road residence by the Avon Fire Department when they became suspicious about an injury on the man’s back. The man had a large slash mark on his back and paramedics felt the injury may not have been accidental. The man, who appeared highly intoxicated, said he was home alone and his wife was out of town. Avon police searched the exterior of the resident including the deck and noticed traces of blood throughout. Police determined the injury was an accident—it appeared he slipped either getting into, or out of, the hot tub. The man was taken to St. John’s Medical Center.

This week in Avon's police blotters.
From Avon's police logs... An older man wearing a bike helmet walking down Detroit Road in Avon drew enough suspicion on Sept. 6 that the police were called. Police were initially unable to find the man but eventually located him the post office parking lot, walking a bike. The man claimed he was “fine” and on his way to Oberlin.
