Editor's Note: The following incidents occurred between Sept. 12 and Sept. 13, and were included in the St. Louis Park Police Department's most recent weekly report, sent out on Sept. 19. Specific details come from individual incident reports maintained by the department.

Sept. 12 - Police were called to Highway 7 near the Aquila Avenue intersection on a report of a woman panhandling in traffic. The woman, 59, was walking right up to cars and went as far out as three lanes away from the median. She told police she was unemployed and didn't know it was illegal to walk in the street for money. She was cited and sent away.

Sept. 12 - A 46-year-old woman reported that her motor scooter had been stolen from her driveway in the 3000 block of Brunswick Avenue South. No suspects have been identified.

Sept. 12 - Police were called to a home in the 2700 block of Huntington Avenue South on a report of a garage burglary. The 44-year-old female homeowner said her wallet, which was in the glove compartment of her car, had been stolen. There were no signs of forced entry into the garage or the car, so doors were likely left unlocked. A neighbor found the wallet in the alley, but several credit cards, a driver's license and an insurance card were missing. No suspects have been identified.

Sept. 13 - Police were called to a residence in the 2700 block of Rhode Island Avenue South on a report of a fight. A 26-year-old man said another man, 29, had hit him on the head several times, apparently mad about something he said about a third resident. The 26-year-old had a small cut on his forehead and some swelling. The 29-year-old man claimed that the 26-year-old man had started punching him. The 29-year-old had cuts on his face and a bloody nose. Both men were advised to get restraining orders against the other. No charges were filed.
