A woman’s car was broken into in the Harrah’s parking lot and a nursing bag containing a pulse oximeter, blood pressure cuff, stethoscope and medical dressing supplies was taken, according to a Douglas County Sheriff’s Report.

The woman told deputies she parked her vehicle in the rear casino parking lot on Dec. 22 around 6:30 p.m. Three hours later, she discovered her vehicle with the passenger side window shattered.

The woman said her car also contained several Christmas gifts and a navigation system.

Harrah’s had no video surveillance of the incident and there were no suspects.

And in South Lake Tahoe:

— A father of three children, ages 14, 11 and 2, allegedly violated a court order Dec. 24 around 6:30 p.m. when he picked up his children from a baby-sitter on Elwood Avenue, according to a report from South Lake Tahoe police.

The childrens’ mother had left the children with the sitter and said she had not given permission to the father to spend time with them. The possible violation is being reviewed by the courts.

— A 27-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of inflicting corporal injury and assault with a deadly weapon on his 20-year-old girlfriend on Dec. 24 at around 10:20 p.m. at the couple’s home on Alder Avenue, according to a South Lake Tahoe police.

Lt. Marty Hale said an argument took place between the man and woman earlier in the night, which turned into a physical altercation. The woman had locked herself in the bathroom sometime during the night.

The man allegedly held a hatchet over her head at some point during the fight.
