• An intoxicated man who broke the new glass front door at JR’s Bar & Grill was arrested and charged with public intoxication. According to a police report, the man was asked to leave the bar at about 1:30 a.m. Wednesday, April 27 because he was causing a disturbance. The suspect left but not before running into the door and causing it to break. The report says the man was unaware he broke the door because he was intoxicated, but a J.R.’s employee who called police said he felt it was intentional. The suspect was charged with public intoxication and taken into custody. Damage to the door was estimated at $1,000.

• A 21-year-old man suffered a 3-inch gash under his eye when he was punched in the face on the dance floor of Station 4, according to police. The victim was dancing near the suspect at about 2:45 a.m. on Saturday, May 1, according to a report. Due to the way the suspect was dancing, his elbow was striking the victim in the groin. The victim leaned over to tell the suspect he was hurting him and ask him to move over. Without saying anything, the suspect punched the victim below the right eye, causing a gash. After calling police, the victim pointed out the suspect to the responding officers — a heavyset Latin male in an orange and yellow polo shirt — but the suspect denied ever seeing the victim. The victim was treated for his injuries at the scene.

• A Zini’s Pizzeria delivery driver was robbed at gunpoint Saturday night at an apartment complex at 2626 Reagan St. in Oak Lawn. According to a report, the suspect met the driver outside the entrance of the complex at about 9:15 p.m.. The suspect acted like he was going to give the driver a $100 bill to pay for his order, the report says. When the driver pulled $80 in cash out of his pocket to make change, the suspect grabbed the money and said he had a gun. The suspect pointed to the silhouette of what appeared to be a pistol in his pocket, before running away and driving off in an older model 2-door vehicle, possibly an Oldsmobile. The driver was unable to get the license plate number of the suspect’s vehicle, and the phone number from which the order was placed came up unavailable.

• A group of three people, including an 18-year-old woman, was robbed at gunpoint as they were leaving the Office Depot parking lot at 3800 Dickason Ave. early this morning. The group was getting in their car to leave the area at about 3:00 a.m. today when four men walked up and held them at gunpoint, according to a police report. The suspects went through the victims’ pockets and took two cell phones, a passport and a small amount of cash. The suspects then got in their vehicle, described as a four-door, cream-colored Buick, and fled.
