No offense to the editors, but not reporting the names of the accused or including an arrest report like other patch sites do, this information is kind of useless and really not worth reading.

The names were not provided by police.

Thank you for letting us know our police are keeping the roads safe. Doesn't matter who they are.

Yeah the names would have been nice, but I would really want to know the name of the guy swinging the axe and the machete.
