A frightened man dialed 911 to report! an assault.
"I was coming in the back door," said the man to the dispatcher,
"when I was struck on the forehead. Luckily, I was able to get
into the house and lock the door. Please send help right away!"
After advising him to stay calm, the dispatcher sent an officer to investigate.
About a half hour later, the rookie returns to the station and is
sporting a large bump on his head.
"What happened to you?," asked the chief. "Did you find the perp?"
"Yes I did, and it was easy, chief," replied the rookie, rubbing
his sore head ... "I stepped on the rake, too."
