SUSPICIOUS PERSON at 11 a.m. at the 600 block of Park Avenue, Janesville. A male resident reported a man who was carrying a baseball bat and walking a “Rottweiler dog” came near his home twice and was “making comments and staring at him.” The man with the bat and dog apparently did not make verbal threats, and police haven’t identified him.


HOUSE FIRE, at 12:01 p.m. Friday at 21 S. Randall Avenue. The exterior of a one-story home caught fire after a resident apparently discarded smoking materials outside the home.
