Dutch Harbor report

From the local police blotter:

Death investigation, March 12 — Officers responded to investigate a death that appears to be from an industrial accident.

Assault, March 13 — Officers responded to a report of an assault. Investigation revealed that several individuals off a fishing vessel were participating at an afterparty. A brief fight ensued. None involved wished to pursue charges.

Assault, March 15 — Officers responded to a processing plant at which an altercation had ensued between members of management and some of the processing staff. One man, who had been identified by management as being of particular concern, was fired as a result of the incident.

Assault, March 16, 2004 hours — Caller requested immediate officer assistance for a rumpus at a local bar. Several fishermen claimed that one of their own had been assaulted by an unknown assailant, but refused to provide any additional information. Officers determined after reviewing video footage that one of the fishermen had shoved another, unidentified man with no apparent provocation, and had subsequently been punched by the unidentified man.

Trespass, March 16, 2042 hours — Four fishermen were issued trespass advisements for a period of six months.

Welfare check, March 16, 2322 hours — A drunken fisherman, known to officers from an earlier interaction, was found passed out by the payphones in the airport terminal. The fisherman, who eventually agreed to leave the terminal building, salvaged a sleeping bag from a Dumpster and elected to find some other public place to sleep.

Assault, March 18, 0211 hours — Jose B. Sedano, 20, who had what he described to officers as a bad day, took it upon himself to punch the next person with whom he came in contact. Sedano was arrested on one count of assault.

Suspicious person, March 18, 1441 hours — Officers investigated a report of a drunken man sleeping outside. The man, who was indeed intoxicated, did not pose a danger to himself and was advised not to enter any licensed establishments for the remainder of the day.

Welfare check, March 18, 1644 hours — The same drunken man was reported stumbling along the roadway. An officer contacted the drunk, determined he was still capable of caring for himself, and told him to stay outside the white line. The drunk said he intended to get cash at the bank, in order to pay for a taxi ride.

Welfare check, March 18, 1743 hours — The drunk made it only a short distance before generating another complaint, but had by this time lost both his ID and ATM card and thus his ability to pay for a taxi. The responding officer determined that providing the drunk with courtesy transport to his vessel was the most expedient means to resolve this problem.

Assault, March 18, 2142 hours — Jose B. Sedano, who had been arrested on an assault charge 20 hours earlier and subsequently released from jail, was arrested again after he returned to the scene of his original crime, burglarized a room, attempted to both rape a young woman and stab a family member, and assaulted a third person. Sedano was this time charged with attempted sexual assault, burglary, assault and violating conditions of release.

Assault, March 19, 0059 hours — Officer investigated a report that a group had attempted to apply rural justice to a man who had allegedly attempted to rape a woman. Interviews and video footage showed that a group of people had indeed gathered around the suspect with that intent, but had stopped when it became apparent that the suspect's family was attempting to control him.

Suspicious activity, March 22 — Caller reported an unattended vehicle, with keys in the ignition, had been left in front of the bar. The caller was concerned because the known driver of said vehicle doesn't frequent bars. Subsequent investigation revealed that the vehicle had actually been left in front of the Elbow Room, a former bar now being converted to other use.
