This Day In History: 1932-02-21
The rest of the police day was less exciting. After checking out the supposed gangland murder car, Police Chief Smith reported that he had been called out when Arthur Van Dunk reported a fight in progress. He found no fight. In the afternoon Mrs. Alice Babcock claimed that her husband was abusing her, but she refused to sign a complaint. Most of the day was devoted to investigating, without success, a robbery and break-in at Chris Hunick’s roadside stand which had been reported on the 14th. He spent over six hours on this investigation. His day, which had begun at 8:30 AM ended at 3:40 the next morning when his “night patrol” ended.
