| May 21, 2020 1:00 AM

A woman told the Flathead County Sheriff’s Office of a “secondhand report of a creepy man hanging around the coffee.” The caller’s daughter said the man, identified as someone in his 60s or 70s, didn’t “speak English very well” and his back-and-forth pacing was making the daughter uncomfortable. He was asked to move along.

A woman called the Sheriff’s Office multiple times trying to get information about the father of her children. She claimed she has “sole legal custody” of the children because they were born outside of a marriage.
