A 26-year-old Grafton man was cited July 29 for “destruction of property and firing of a compound bow within village limits” after he shot an arrow into the siding of a neighbor’s house causing damage in the 1000 block of 6th Avenue about 9 p.m. July 28. The neighbor notified police after hearing a noise at that time and also reported his neighbor was having a party. When police spoke with the suspect he initially told them his bow and arrow were stolen earlier that day and he planned to report that theft soon. He then admitted he shot the arrow while aiming at a chair but hit the neighbor’s house by accident and was “very sorry.”
A resident reported being the victim of a scam after sending $400 to a caller who said he needed new virus software July 27. After the money was sent, the resident received more calls saying the software wasn’t working and the caller needed access to the resident’s computer. The resident gave that access and a short time later realized it was a scam and notified police and his bank. There was no further loss to the resident.
