Knock Knock or bang bang?
The Oak Lawn police were recently called to a house for a “disturbance” alleging that a female was banging on a door on 89th Place. While in route, the homeowner called the police to tell the dispatcher that the female was “keying” a vehicle that was parked in her driveway.
The police arrived to find Mayra Quintanilla standing in between the vehicle that was allegedly being keyed and the side door to the house that the homeowner claimed Quintanialla was banging on at about 2 a.m.
Quintanilla approached the officer and allegedly stated that her “husband” was inside the house with another female. She believed her claim was true because her husband, identified as Francisco Martinez, had parked his van on the street across from the home. Martinez told police that Quintanilla is the mother of his children but that the two had never tied the matrimonial knot.
The homeowner told police that she and Martinez had come home from a party in the last fifteen minutes. Shortly after arriving, the homeowner stated that she her someone “pounding” the door and causing a commotion. The homeowner became frightened and called the police.
The homeowner claimed that she had witnessed Quintanilla scratching the car with an unknown object. The police did notice scratch marks on the hood of the car, the windshield, and the driver side panels of the car. The word “Hoe” had been scratched into the hood. The homeowner was victimized in May with something similar but didn’t press charges against anyone.
This time, the homeowner signed complaints for criminal damage to property and disorderly conduct. Quintanilla was placed into custody and taken to the police station. Quintanilla, listed as a 37 year old white woman, provided a Romeoville address to the police.
