Disturbance at 2800 Lawrence and Unmarked Squad Car Response

I was biking south down California ave last night around 8 o clock and when turning east on Lawrence noticed several people in the middle of the street. It appeared as if a couple in their 30s or 40s was following an enraged teenager/young adult. The teenager was screaming profanities and when a car slowed down to pass by him he began punching the driver through the open window.

I was being honked at from behind to keep moving and I didn't want to get assaulted so I proceeded east on Lawrence when several blue unmarked SUVs with blue lights started screaming westbound. There were at least three of them.

I've never noticed this police vehicle type before, is this new? Were they staking out the area due to previous disturbances (like the stabbing)? Did anybody else witness this or know what caused it or the aftermath?

  • Ravens Yes.I can fix that.

    Bill, you are kidding about the SUV's not being 4 wheel drive, right?

  • Bill Near Rockwell L

    No, that's what the officer told me. Not 4-wheel or all-wheel, just plain 2 wheel drive.
