* A woman, 39, said she was robbed of her purse at 7:40 a.m. Aug. 23 in the 5100 block of Milbank Road.

* A woman said she was delayed in reporting being robbed of her $200 cellphone by one of a group of people who had harassed her and her husband in the 4600 block of Tamarack Boulevard at 11 a.m. Aug. 23 because they are both deaf and had to find an interpreter.

Communicating through that interpreter, the victim said the person who took her phone was one of four to five people who picked on the couple. "At one point, the suspect pushed the victim onto the ground and took her cellphone," the report stated.
