Ohio man charged with kidnapping after woman escapes from freezer with frostbite, police say

An Ohio man faces kidnapping charges after a woman told police she escaped from a freezer at a Cleveland-area home where she may have been held for days, according to police.

The East Cleveland Police Department said Eric Glaze, 41, was arrested Tuesday on charges of kidnapping and attempted murder after the victim escaped from the home earlier in the day. Authorities were first alerted to an issue in the area at 10 a.m. after the woman crashed her car in Cleveland, allegedly as she was making her escape.

East Cleveland Police Capt. Scott Gardner told FOX8 the woman identified Glaze as an acquaintance and said she attended a party at the home on Sunday.

“She came over here on her own volition and essentially, she was administered some sort of narcotic, according to her,” he told FOX8. “She’s not exactly certain of the events that happened in-between, but she woke up and she was in a freezer that was running.”

The woman, who was not restrained, said she was able to push open the lid of the freezer and escape Tuesday morning, getting into her car and driving off — before she got into the accident.

“She seems to think that they were, that they had drugged her to the capacity that [they thought] she was dead, is what she was indicating to us, and that they were essentially trying to get rid of her,” Gardner told FOX8.

Neighbors said a SWAT team arrived at the home to “kick the door in.”

“Why didn’t you just call 911, have the ambulance come and check her out? First, then they would have determined whether she took something, had something, you know what I’m saying, before you just say ‘Oh she’s dead,'” neighbor Pat Phoeson told FOX8.

The incident remains under investigation. Glaze is expected to be arraigned Thursday in East Cleveland Municipal Court, Gardner told Cleveland.com.

California man claims he was beaten at bar after men confused him with child predator suspect

A California man says he was beaten at a bar last week after a group of men confused him with a child predator sought by police.

Kevin Martin, 34, told KTLA he was outside Slick’s Billiards in Norco, a city roughly 50 miles west of Los Angeles, on Thursday night when two men approached him and accused Martin of being the person wanted by police for allegedly making sexual comments to an 11-year-old girl in Corona in May.

One of the men “had his phone on him and he said, ‘This is you, isn’t it? We don’t allow your kind here,'” Martin told KTLA. “The other guy starts pushing me and says, ‘You know, I got a daughter.'”

Martin apparently looks similar to the 20-something male sought earlier this year by the Corona Police Department. Investigators put out a computer-generated composite image online that “depicts the general description of the suspect,” and the men seemingly thought Martin was that suspect.

The men allegedly strangled Martin and punched him at least 20 times, and Martin claims one of them told him “I kill people like this.”

Owens was reportedly caught on surveillance footage allegedly grabbing two packs of rib-eye steaks — worth $56.36 — putting them in his pants and walking out of the store. A loss prevention officer who saw the alleged steak swipe apprehended Owens as he exited the store, according to the report.

The 61-year-old told investigators he figured if he got caught, he would just be removed from the store, not arrested, officials said.

Wisconsin family says live frog found in packaged salad greens, caught on video

A Wisconsin family getting ready for dinner received a surprise visitor in store-bought salad greens this past Tuesday.

Karlie Allen recorded the encounter on her phone as the family spotted a live frog stuck to the side of the packaged Simple Truth organic greens.

Yells and disgusted looks by family members could be seen and heard in the video, with Allen screaming before exclaiming, “OMG, it’s literally alive.”

WISCONSIN FUGITIVE VANISHED BEFORE TRIAL, HID FOR MORE THAN 3 YEARS IN CRAMPED AND CLUTTERED MAKESHIFT BUNKER

“I’m thinking, ‘One, how the heck did that get in there?’ and ‘Two, that is absolutely disgusting,'” Allen told WTMJ.

The origins of the frog could be traced to a Pick ‘n Save in Glendale, where the family had bought the salad greens on Tuesday.

Allen said she decided to bring the contaminated product back to the grocery store where she showed the clerk the video and received a refund. She added that wanted to bring the frog as well, but it escaped overnight.

While she didn’t receive any answers from the clerk as to how the frog ended up in the salad, Simple Truth and Pick n’ Save’s parent company reached out to her to comment on the situation and apologize.

WISCONSIN GOVERNOR SUED FOR BARRING CONSERVATIVE JOURNALISTS FROM BRIEFING

“These situations happen from time to time when Organic products are involved,” Roundy’s Supermarkets, Inc. said in a statement. “USDA Certified Organic items must be free of synthetic additives and certain pesticides. Although rare, from time-to-time we do see insects and other small animals such as frogs make it through packaging with fresh produce items. In this instance, the customer returned the organic lettuce for an even exchange.”

Simple Truth also apologized, saying: “We are so sorry that the Simple Truth product had a live frog inside of the carton. We definitely want to follow up with the supplier. Please advise of the Kroger Plus Card that was used for the purchase, the date of the purchase and if you still have the plastic carton, what is the UPC Code and the manufacturer code for the mix.”

After the amphibian escapade, Allen says she didn’t plan to eat salad any time soon.

“This is in a box of lettuce that’s supposed to be triple washed and organic and healthy,” she said.

A South Carolina school counselor was caught on surveillance video narrowly escaping danger after nearly being struck by lightning on campus last week.

Romulus McNeill, a counselor at the Academy for Technology and Academics in Conway, was walking across campus to get to his car while carrying an umbrella on Thursday when he was nearly hit during a storm.

Before he walked out, while others were debating whether to wait for the storm to pass, McNeil “took a chance” and said “I hope I don’t get struck by lightning,” he told WMBF. It nearly happened.

Released security footage shows McNeil walking across a sidewalk when lightning strikes right beside him. Alarmed, McNeil seemingly jumps up and drops his umbrella, before picking it up and quickly walking off.

“I felt a shock,” McNeill said. “It was just kind of insane for it to happen like that. I was just trying to get home and get something to eat.”

He wrote on Facebook Friday that the footage shows his “crazy experience with lightning,” and added he’s super “thankful to have been able to motor scoot out of there without major [injuries.]”

Greenland says it’s ‘open for business, not for sale’ after Trump purchase report

Greenland dismissed reports that U.S. President Donald Trump has thought about purchasing the world’s biggest island, saying it was “open for business, not for sale.”

A report in the Wall Street Journal claimed that Trump has reportedly expressed interest in acquiring Greenland, an autonomous Danish territory, for the U.S.

White House sources told the Journal that Trump asked his advisers about acquiring the island during “meetings, dinners, and passing conversations” because of Greenland’s “abundant resources and geopolitical importance.”

A Trump ally told the Associated Press on Thursday that Trump had discussed the purchase but was not serious about it.

TRUMP HAS EXPRESSED SERIOUS INTEREST IN BUY GREENLAND: REPORT

Greenland, however, said it’s not on the market.

“We have a good cooperation with USA, and we see it as an expression of greater interest in investing in our country and the possibilities we offer,” the island’s government said on its website. “Of course, Greenland is not for sale.”

The country’s foreign ministry insisted that it was “open for business, but not for sale.”

“Greenland is rich in valuable resources such as minerals, the purest water and ice, fish stocks, seafood, renewable energy and is a new frontier for adventure tourism,” the ministry said in a tweet Friday. “We’re open for business, not for sale.”

Danish politicians on Friday poured scorn on the idea.

“It has to be an April Fool’s joke. Totally out of season,” former prime minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen tweeted.

Meanwhile, Soren Espersen, the foreign affairs spokesman for the Danish People’s Party, told broadcaster DR: “If he is truly contemplating this, then this is final proof, that he has gone mad. The thought of Denmark selling 50,000 citizens to the United States is completely ridiculous.”

Former U.S. ambassador to Denmark, Rufus Gifford, commented on Twitter, saying: “Oh dear lord. As someone who loves Greenland, has been there nine times to every corner and loves the people, this is a complete and total catastrophe.”

PHOTOS FROM GREENLAND REVEAL WORRYING COST OF EUROPEAN HEAT WAVE

Still, it wouldn’t be the first time an American leader tried to buy the world’s largest island.

In 1946, the U.S. proposed to pay Denmark $100 million to buy Greenland after flirting with the idea of swapping land in Alaska for strategic parts of the Arctic island.

Coincidentally, the Journal’s report comes as Trump will make his first visit to Denmark next month. However, the sources said the scheduled trip is completely unrelated.

Greenland, which has a population of roughly 56,000 concentrated along the coastline, has welcomed U.S. military personnel to its Thule Air Base as part of a treaty between the U.S. and Denmark. More than 80 percent of the island is covered by an ice cap.

The Journal reported that advisers have said Trump sees purchasing Greenland as equivalent to the 1867 acquisition of Alaska.

The White House has not commented on the reports.

Tanzania politician says he wants to launch database of married men to crack down on cheating

The governor of Tanzania’s largest city wants to create a database that tracks married men in the East African region in order to crack down on infidelity and “humiliating” women, he said this week.

Women have been complaining that men are deceiving them by making false promises of marriage, Dar es Salaam regional commissioner Paul Makonda said at a news conference on Monday.

“Our main aim is to relieve pain from these women who are suffering from these cheaters — As a governor, I am not happy to lead women who are sad and heartbroken,” Makonda said, according to The Daily Telegraph.

SOUTH AFRICAN EDUCATION OFFICIALS APOLOGIZES AFTER BACKLASH OVER ‘SEXY READING’ TWEETS

“If possible, we will set up a database in the regional commissioner’s office in each region that every man who promises a woman marriage, this should be registered in the database which will allow women to check to see whether the person asking is married,” he explained.

The government-run public database would include all married men’s’ names and photos, but other details of such a database — including its legality — remain unclear.

“I have received a lot of complaints from young women. Many women from Dar es Salaam region have been deceived many times, and they have had enough,” Makonda said, according to The Independent. “These charming men have been promising to marry them, then ditch the women after using them. This is something that is humiliating.”

TANZANIA LEADER VOWS LARGE-SCALE ARRESTS OF LGBT PEOPLE

“These cunning men have left many women nursing heartbreaks and emotional bruises,” Makonda added. “You’ll find a young man successfully wooing a woman, making her leave every other thing that she does and follows you, hoping that the man will marry her only to realize he is just using her.”

This would not be the first time Makonda has made a controversial suggestion. Last year he called for citizens to start reporting gay people in Tanzania, where same-sex relationships are illegal.

He said a team of police and other authorities would target gay people, The Guardian reported at the time — but the national government distanced itself from Makonda’s proposal.

“The government of the United Republic of Tanzania would like to clarify that these are [Makonda’s] personal views and not the position of the government,” the foreign affairs ministry had said at the time.

Washington state trooper finds driver playing ‘Pokemon Go’ on 8 phones

This driver clearly wanted to catch them all.

Authorities in Washington state said a state trooper who pulled over Tuesday to help what he thought was a disabled vehicle instead found a motorist playing “Pokemon Go” on eight different phones.

Washington State Trooper Rick Johnson said on Twitter the driver was stopped on the shoulder of the eastbound lanes of Highway 518 in Burien, located just south of Seattle.

Johnson, a spokesman for the patrol, shared a photo of what Sgt. Kyle Smith discovered in the vehicle: a blue foam square with the eight phones lying in special cutouts.

“Driver agreed to put phones in back seat and continued his commute with eight less distractions,” Johnson said.

Smith did not issue a ticket because he did not observe the car moving while the driver was using the phones, according to Johnson.

The sergeant, however, did advise the motorist not to stop along the highway shoulder unless there was an emergency.
