First, let me make clear the brick pictured above is NOT THE ACTUAL BRICK INVOLVED IN THIS STRANGE INCIDENT. Instead, this brick came from the burned down "thug store" at Emerson and Lowry, click here for previous coverage. Now it's my souvenir brick and I've added it to my collection of bricks documenting the steady and amazing changes in our neighborhood, click here for an example.
With THAT cleared up...
An alert and helpful Johnny Northside reader posted information from the Ramsey County Jail Roster, linking the info with this article from the Star Tribune East Metro section, click here.
Davina Rulford, 22, stands accused of assaulting a 57-year-old man with Parkinson's disease. The man tells one story and the convicted prostitute tells another about what they were doing in an alley. Truth may be somewhere in the middle but the dude has a concussion. He says it's from A BRICK and she says he "tripped over his own cane" while running away. The prosecutor is charging the incident based on his version of events, at least as far as the "brick applied firmly to the head" allegation is concerned.
The incident happened near a nasty little SuperAmerica store on the Lexington Parkway near I-94. I used to live in the area and, unfortunately, I know the gas station well. It's an embarrassment to the SuperAmerica chain, if you ask me. I have called the SuperAmerica chain on at least one occasion and told them so.
Despite the fact she was in St. Paul during the incident, Davina Rulford lists a North Minneapolis address on the Ramsey County Jail Roster of...
...2442 Irving Ave. N. (Roster information is sometimes based on lies told by suspects, but even when the info is false it's revealing of where the suspect wants authorities to THINK they live)
The address in question belongs to Proton Investments, Inc., click here for my last blog post about these smooth talking wannabe slumlords whose name has been coming up OVER AND OVER lately. The taxpayer is listed as American Security Land Trust, C/o Pha Group, Inc., 1573 Fox Hunt Way (are you KIDDING ME?) Victoria, MN.
Interestingly, though Star Tribune makes mention of a previous prostitution conviction, I am unable to pull up ANY info on MNCIS. I must say it's my impression MNCIS has been quite twitchy of late.
