After a night on the town, Filip Fiebig and his friends were dropped off by a taxi on Edgemere Street in the early hours of May 28. As they were waiting to cross the road, a Jeep pulled over and a man jumped out, punched Mr. Fiebig in the face twice, and ran back to the Jeep, which drove off. The victim and his friends all insisted that they had had had no altercations that night. Mr. Fiebig was taken to the hospital and treated for facial lacerations and broken teeth.

Carolina Brito, who works at Montauk Blue Hotel, called police after having problems with a hotel guest, Elena Zakharova, who complained to the officers that her room was not up to standards and that the hotel staff was harassing her.

Patrick Paul and Christopher Coffee were highly intoxicated on the night of May 28 and may not have realized they were urinating on the front door of village police headquarters — or perhaps they did.

Police were called to the intersection of Rector and Dering Streets early last Thursday morning after a woman was reported screaming there.
