From the News-Star Crime blotter:

Bitter guest threatens homeowner
A 59-year-old man reported being threatened by a former house guest around 8:30 p.m. March 16. The victim told police that the house guest, a man in his mid 70s, had stayed at his home for a few months in the 2200 block of W. Foster.
The house guest, who reportedly had been drinking, swung a garden hoe at the victim numerous times, but missed. The man then fled in an unknown direction. The victim also reported that the house guest broke through his front door, cutting his hand and threatening to send the victim back to Croatia in a box.
Police toured the area and checked with neighborhood hospitals to see if the house guest sought treatment for a bloody hand, but didn’t find him.
