Join us for the 2017 International Coastal Cleanup this Saturday from 8am to Noon! Volunteers who want to attend should meet at 8am at City Hall (4970 City Hall Blvd) the day of the event to register and get the location of where they will cleanup. Last year, there were over 100 volunteers!
The International Coastal Cleanup is the world's largest volunteer effort to clean up waterways and the ocean. Since North Port does not have a coastline, cleanup crews will be working in various locations throughout the City. Nearly 12 million people and counting have been part of this amazing volunteer effort. North Port has participated in the cleanup efforts for over a decade! Will you join us this year?
It was a very long day for our Special Response Team, Crisis, Negotiators, Detectives, and patrol dealing with this morning's 9-hour standoff. We just wanted to give a quick THANK YOU to McDonald's for the breakfast sandwiches and Roosters Lawn Care LLC for dropping off some additional food. We're still a great small town and we appreciate the support. #communitypride #numnumnum
A roughly 9-hour stand-off on Grobe St. ended peacefully Monday morning. 34-yr-old Roman Melnichuk is charged with two counts of Aggravated Assault, one count of False Imprisonment, two counts of Domestic Battery, and one count of Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor.
NPPD was called to the home shortly after 3am. The suspect refused to come out of the house with his 1-yr-old baby still inside. At that time, a perimeter was set up. The initial investigation indicated Melnichuk had been drinking alcohol and smoking “spice” with a juvenile. Later battering a woman there. It was also reported that a sexual battery took place which we are continuing to investigate.
At one point, Melnichuk exited the home with a knife and threatened to kill himself. He retreated into the home where the child was located. Through the course of the morning, our Special Response Team along with our Crisis Negotiators were able to convince Melnichuk to give up the child. Hours later, he exited the home without incident.
UPDATE: Subject has been taken into custody without incident.
EARLIER: NPPD is currently working a family disturbance on Grobe Street where a subject is refusing to exit the residence. This is an isolated incident and there is no threat to the public. More details when available.
