Theft by deception, Mayfield Road: At 8 p.m. Sept. 7, a caller reported that while he was in the store Fantasy Candies, 5338 Mayfield Road, a man drove up, walked into the store and said he was an employee of nearby Lyndhurst Lumber.

The caller gave the man $50 and, 25 minutes later, realized he had been the victim of a scam.

Warrant arrest, Richmond Road: At 9:30 p.m. Sept. 10, a caller reported that two males were involved in a dispute outside CVS/Pharmacy, 1443 Richmond Road.

No charges were filed regarding the argument between the two men, who are friends.

Criminal trespassing, Richmond Road: At 10:55 a.m. Sept. 9, police received a call from First Assembly of God Church, 1370 Richmond Road, where a woman who had been told to stay away from the church, was standing inside. The Euclid woman, 66, was cited for criminal trespassing.

Felonious assault, Winchester Road: At 11:30 p.m. Sept. 8, a woman reported that her daughter, 19, had been assaulted in the mother's home by the daughter's boyfriend, 18.

The woman was not calling from her home. When police arrived at the home, the boyfriend, of Euclid, was no longer present. He did, however, send his girlfriend a text message stating that he would return to pick up some belongings.

When the man returned he was arrested and charged with felonious assault and his car towed.
