Police respond to home disturbance
A man was arrested for an outstanding warrant for resisting law enforcement on Monday afternoon.
Around 2:42 p.m., Schererville Police responded to a call regarding a man holding another man at gunpoint at a house in the 1500 block of Demeter Drive. The call came from a third party — the brother of the two men — after his mother informed him of the situation. Police arrived and met with the home’s occupants, who didn’t speak English. The officers could only ascertain that one of the sons had stopped by with a gun and then took his brother.
Officers headed to the son’s house in the same block, but they were unable to make contact with anyone inside. Police thought they heard movement inside, so they called for the Northwest Regional SWAT Team. Police later discoverd that no one was being held hostage at the house.
The original caller, Edwin Feliciano, met with officers near the scene. He was arrested on an oustanding warrant for resisting law enforcement through the Schererville Town Court.
Person of interest caught in Winfield bank robbery
The Lake County Sheriff’s Department has in custody an unidentified man who officials say is a person of interest in the robbery of a Centier Bank in Winfield Tuesday evening.
A man entered the bank, at 8020 E. 109th Ave., around 5 p.m. and demanded money, although he did not show a weapon. The man fled on foot after employees gave him money, according to police.
A Lakes of the Four Seasons resident called the community’s security shortly after, saying a suspicious person ran through her yard.
Security caught the man, and Lake County took him into custody.
