A suspicous man wasn't alone when a woman saw him in her yard and on her back porch Sept. 12, according to a report the Lyric Lane resident made to the Fridley Police Department the next day. The man was accompanied by man's best friend, she said—he had a small black dog on a leash.

In all incidents where an arrest occurred, a charge is merely an accusation and not evidence of guilt. The arrested person is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. Incidents generally appear in the order in which they were reported, not necessarily the order in which they occurred.
