A man and woman living on the 2600 block of Charing Road called police at 9 a.m. Aug. 9 to file an "unnecessary noise" complaint against two neighbors they said had been harassing them for more than a month.

According to reports, the couple said since June 24, their neighbors honk their vehicle horns each time they come and go from their home.

No one was charged as a result of the report, but the complainants submitted video surveillance to police as evidence, and they were provided with victim's-rights information.
