Union Police Continue Assault Investigation

The Union Police Department continues to investigate the assault of a Sally’s Mane Shop employee. The woman called police Sunday Afternoon claiming she was assaulted by a man named Vinney. He is described as a while male, about 40 years old, approximately 6 feet 4 inches with a stocky build. He had brown hair with a goatee, wearing a cream colored Polo shirt, tight faded jeans and old cowboy boots. Vinney had a tattoo on his right forearm with words indicating his profession, possibly "Iron worker". He left the area in a late 2000 black Jeep Cherokee with no discernible markings. Union Police Chief Norm Brune says they have several leads and a possible person of interest in the case but continues to ask for the public’s help finding the man. If you have any information pertaining to the investigation please call the Union Police Department at 636-583-3700.

If you want to get someone's attention, whisper. That old investment brokerage ad is the opposite of what is going on regarding shootings in Ferguson and Tower Grove. When people threaten violence or blankly label one as a racist, it's very hard to listen. The same holds true for those who sum up the plight of impoverished black communities as "that's how those people are."
