Ok, so here is the update on the "beating" that took place outside my window....
Apparently a man was beating up a girl, at least that's what it looked like to me. So I ran to the phone and called the front desk, and they called the Cops.
The girl from the front desk apparently poked her head out the side door, and witnessed this man chasing the girl back over towords the gas station next door. She called me back to ask what they looked like and I told her that is was a guy, and I think he was beating up a girl. She confirmed to me what she had seen and said the police were already on the way.
When the police got here the girl was sitting on the curb behind the gas station, but the guy was gone. They talked to her for a minute and one of the other officers left.
He came back with someone in the back of his car, and the other officer was talking to him. He then searched the girls purse. After talking a bit more, he went back over to the car and had the girl get on the other side near the back door. He then let the guy out of the car and he went into the gas station. When he came back out, both the girl and the guy got into the back of the police car (not handcuffed) and they left.
So I have no idea what the heck happened. Pretty strange. Just thought I would let those of you who might have been wondering what happened after I said that in chat, and then abruptly left.
