A roundup of bizarre, "OMG"-worthy police reports in the area from the past week.

FOREST PARK

Armed Robber Gets a Sandwich

A man robbed the cash register at Subway, 321 Harlem Ave. in Forest Park on Thanksgiving day. A Subway employee told police the offender ordered a sandwich and a drink around 12:30 p.m., then pulled a gun on the employee when he opened the cash register. The offender took all of the cash from the register and ran south from the business, police said. 

Police Use Taser on Man Who Was Stealing, Spilling Customers' Beers

Forest Park police used a taser on a Westchester man who caused a scene and slapped an officer outside Slainte Tavern, 7505 Madison St. around 1:30 a.m. Nov. 28.

Police said two security doormen at the bar waved down police to remove Christopher Pagliuco, 27, who had been stealing and drinking other customers' beers at the bar. One of the doormen told police Pagliuco had also purposely tossed and spilled beer on the bar and other patrons. 

When police cleared Pagliuco to leave without arrest, he attempted to shake the officer's hand. When the officer declined the handshake, Pagliuco slapped him in the face, prompting the officer to use his taser, police said. 

He was charged with battery to a police officer and two counts of resisting and given a Jan. 14 court date. 

Can I See That Gun, Officer?

Forest Park police charged Chiquita Ogolvie, 28, of Chicago, with battery after she touched an officer's gun during a disturbance in the 7300 block of Dixon Avenue around 9:40 p.m. Nov. 28.

While responding to a call about a disturbance in the 7300 block of Dixon Avenue, the people involved in the disturbance started to yell at the officers at the scene, police said, including Ogolvie. Police said Ogolvie walked by one of the officers, pushed on his gun holster, then yelled, "You can't... tell me what to do," when the officer told her to stay away. She was given a Jan. 7 court date and held on bond.
