A man entered a business on the first block of East Main Street at 8:27 p.m. May 31 and began asking the owner questions about whether the area was prepared for a riot and other questions related to rioting, according to Westerville police reports.
As the man was leaving, he told the owner that because he seemed like a nice guy, he would recommend boarding up his windows for the night as a precaution.
