The best and worst of Triad police blotters, as compiled by Jordan Green

Sunday encounter with God

An unidentified man said he was working in his yard at his home on Savoy Lane in Greensboro at about 2 p.m. on Sunday when he was approached by two black men on foot who demanded his money. After the two men robbed the man, they ran to a dark-colored Ford Explorer SUV bearing a bumper sticker with the word “God.”

Sunday night invaders

An unidentified man answered a knock at the door of his apartment on McKnight Mill Road in Greensboro at 11:22 p.m. on Sunday. Two black men tried to force their way into the apartment at gunpoint, he said. The man pushed against the door, trying to close it. A struggle ensued, and police report that two shots were fired into the apartment.

Robbery in black and red

Two black men walked into EZ Way Grocery on High Point Road in Greensboro on Monday morning armed with one handgun between them and demanded money. One was wearing a red, hooded sweat jacket while the other wore a black hooded sweat jacket. Both had some kind of cover over their faces. They took an undisclosed amount of money and drove away.

Incoherent man in classroom

Parrish Lauren Jackson, 24, was seen pacing in front of Guilford Middle School in Greensboro at about 2:15 p.m. on Monday. When Jackson entered the school, two teachers confronted him and a school resource officer was called. Police said Jackson refused to stop, and walked into a 7th grade classroom and pushed the teacher aside as about 20 students watched. School Resource Officer VH Sanchez was on the scene in about 30 seconds and directed the teacher and students to vacate the classroom. Jackson reportedly ignored Sanchez’s commands, prompting the officer to strike him with Taser. Jackson kicked Sanchez, according to a police report, before the Sanchez was able to bring him under control and more police officers arrived on the scene. No one involved was aware of Jackson having any ties to the school, and people who observed the incident said he did not appear to be coherent at any time.
