Police Report: Umbrella Mistaken for Samurai Sword; Vehicle Break-ins; Disruptive Students

Waukesha Police Department calls from Nov. 19.

The following information was supplied by the Waukesha Police Department. Where arrests or charges are mentioned, it does not indicate a conviction.

A man wearing a mask and black winter clothes while carrying an umbrella prompted a few looks Monday morning.

The man was walking near West St. Paul and North Prairie avenues at 9:40 a.m. when a caller noticed him. The caller told police the man was carrying a Samurai sword.

Police made contact with the man, who said he was walking to work. Police noted it was an umbrella the man was carrying – not a sword.

But that didn’t stop a second person to call about the man about 20 minutes later.

there is something seriously wrong with people in Waukesha . they see things and make up what they don't know. that's just as disruptive. then when they actually see something they 'never saw it' because they don't want to "get involved"
