Police and fire


Argument escalates on bus

A fight between two people Monday morning stopped a Citilink bus and caused delays for the other passengers.

Fort Wayne police responded after the bus stopped at Spy Run Avenue and Lawton Place about 10:30 a.m., police said.

A man and a woman got into an argument, police said, and the 29-year-old woman pulled out a steak knife. The 33-year-old man was able to get the knife away from the woman, who was cut on her hand.

Citilink passengers were transferred to another bus, so authorities could pull the security video as evidence, police said.

The woman was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, attempted battery and criminal recklessness.

Foundation helps tornado relief

The Community Foundation of Greater Fort Wayne is sending $10,000 from its emergency fund to the Community Foundation of Southern Indiana for disaster relief. The funds will help the communities in Clark County affected by the March 2 tornado and related storms.

“We realize that long-term recovery efforts for devastation of this magnitude can be a drawn-out and underfunded process,” said David Bennett, executive director of the Community Foundation.

The foundation’s emergency fund can be used for a broad range of assistance but is mainly focused on natural disaster “of a significant magnitude,” Bennett said. The criteria is up to the foundation’s board of directors, Bennett said.
