Police responded May 28 to Walmart, 10240 Hudson Road, for a report of a shoplifter fleeing. An officer stopped a vehicle the suspect was in on Interstate 94, where stolen items were recovered. During the stop, a woman in the vehicle had a medical emergency that required her to be hospitalized. At the hospital, Woodbury police learned the woman was listed as a missing person from Anoka County and had numerous warrants for her arrest. The driver of the vehicle, a Minneapolis man, was arrested and jailed. A passenger from Minneapolis with Freeborn County warrants was also arrested.

A woman reported May 29 that she spotted a suspicious male in a vehicle parked outside her home in the 2200 block of Wildflower Lane. The male, described as approximately 20 years old, watched as she got out of her vehicle and went inside her home. About 30 minutes later, the woman heard a knock on her door and then the sound of footsteps running off. She looked out the door and saw the suspicious male driving off. The woman then found a note on the door "which read something similar to, 'Hey, you're a hot (woman), call me,'" the report states. Police checked a phone number listed on the note and connected it with a male suspect, who was not identified.

A Woodbury man reported May 29 that he had been assaulted. The man had returned home bleeding from the head and told his mother he had been "jumped." He was taken to Woodwinds Health Campus, where police later interviewed him.

The man, whose preliminary blood-alcohol content was 0.14, did not wish to press charges.

An anonymous caller reported a road rage incident May 31 in the 2100 block of Radio Drive. The complainant reported that driving east on Central Park Place, she drove around a vehicle that she thought was turning into Kowalski's Market. Soon after, that vehicle drove up close to the complainant's and "mirrored her every move to evade her," the report states. The complainant made a U-turn and drove to the nearby police station, which apparently prompted the suspect to stop tailing the complainant.

Police were called June 2 to a road rage incident at Hudson Road and Settlers Ridge Parkway.

When the vehicles got to Hudson Road and Settlers Ridge Parkway, the passenger of the pursuing vehicle got out and confronted the victim, who had also exited her vehicle. The passenger took a swing at the girl, but did not connect. The passenger returned to her vehicle, a 1998 silver Lexus, after being instructed by the driver. The complainant did not seek charges.
