Elgin Police Department (EPD)

According to an EPD report, at the request of a county deputy, an Elgin officer assisted a Leslie M. Stover Middle School assistant administrator in speaking with a juvenile who allegedly made a threat against the school on Feb. 16.

The officer first spoke with the administrator who said threats had been made inside the school. The witness told the administrator and officer they approached the subject student about an hour earlier about why they used a racial slur the previous day. The subject student allegedly responded by saying, “One day I will bring a shotgun.” The administrator then called the subject juvenile into a conference room. The child admitted to making the racial slur and to saying, “Gonna get a gun,” to the witness. The student then changed their story, claiming they only said, “Maybe I’ll bring a gun.” The child refused to answer the officer’s questions regarding personal information and access to any guns. The administrator said the student is a special needs child and would be suspended pending a manifestation hearing to determine if an administration hearing, expulsion or alternative schooling hearing would take place.

After completing that call, the same officer investigated a report of a fight between some juvenile females that ended when one girl’s aunt allegedly “choked out” another of the girls. That case is still under being investigated.

Elgin officers arrested a 36-year-old man around 12:45 a.m. Feb. 17 for domestic violence after he allegedly pushed his long-time live-in girlfriend to the floor, injuring her forehead and pulling out her two front false teeth.

Elgin officers also dealt with recent incidents involving financial transaction fraud, a possible assault that turned out not to be, shoplifting, vandalism, and one case that involved marijuana possession, no proof of insurance and unlawful passing.
