Homeless man reported in a scuffle, but officers unable to find a fight

The Park City Police Department investigated a report of two men beating up a homeless man on Main Street on Saturday, Sept. 26, but the authorities said they were unable to find evidence of a fight.

Police officers were called to the 400 block of Main Street at 12:23 a.m. The officers, though, said they did not observe a problem. A Police Department captain said afterward the department considers the call unfounded, meaning the responding officers did not find the people reportedly involved.

Rick Ryan, the captain, said an ambulance was called, but the police canceled the ambulance.

The stretch of Main Street where the case was reported is busy with nightclub-goers until the early morning hours during the weekend. Reports of homeless people are infrequent in Park City.

Other incidents reported to the Police Department last week included:

On Sunday, Sept. 7 at 4:28 a.m., someone told the police they found a credit card on the 400 block of Main Street.

At 2:11 a.m., someone driving a white Toyota Tundra reportedly hit a parked vehicle and then drove away. The case was reported on the 2000 block of Prospector Avenue.

On Saturday, Sept. 6 at 10:01 p.m., someone on Prospector Avenue called the police, telling dispatchers they were concerned they saw kids hiding nearby. The kids might be preparing to break into a car, the police were told. Public police records do not provide details about the kids.

Someone called the police at 9:40 p.m., reporting the driver of a white Audi was driving at between 45 mph and 50 mph on Estates Drive, a neighborhood street. The person told the police they were willing to sign a complaint against the driver.

A wallet was found on the 400 block of Main Street at 9:03 p.m. Police officers indicated they would try to contact the owner.

A man was reportedly seen sitting in a front yard on Park Avenue at 12:39 p.m., and a person at the location told the police they wanted him removed. The man was wearing a black shirt, jeans and a belt made of rope, the police were told. He appeared to be at least 50 years old, the person who contacted the police said.

A police officer wrote a parking ticket to someone who left their car in front of a fire hydrant on the 1700 block of Prospector Avenue.

On Friday, Sept. 5 at 3:01 p.m., a dog reportedly bit a person on Monitor Drive.

On Thursday, Sept. 4 at 5:52 p.m., someone told the police two mountain bikes were stolen from a garage on Holiday Ranch Loop Road. The garage door had been left open, the police were told.

Earlier that day, at 11:11 a.m., a dog reportedly was off a leash on Wyatt Earp Way and almost bit somebody. It does not appear the two cases are related.

On Wednesday, Sept. 3 at 6:48 p.m., two kids were reportedly seen on go-carts driving east out of Park City on the Rail Trail.

On Tuesday, Sept. 2 at 12:46 p.m., a police officer approached three kids on Equestrian Way to find out why they were not in school. The Police Department said the three had permission from the parents to not be in school that day.

On Monday, Sept. 1 at 1:01 p.m., a store manager reportedly from Snow Creek Drive chased a man running on Kearns Boulevard. Public police logs do not provide details, such as why the manager was after the man.
