    Anyone with information may contact the Police Department at 615-5500.

    A dispute about a parking spot was reported somewhere along Park Avenue at 6:14 p.m. The person who reported the case told the police he planned to park in a space.

    At 5:54 p.m., someone on Park Avenue reported a man accused him of hitting his car while driving. The two did not know each other, the police said.
