Vienna Crime Roundup

This week: Assault by chest bump

There are crime reports, and then there are crime reports from Vienna, Va.

Few municipalities release the clearinghouse of recent criminal activity that the Vienna Police Department does. The town puts out a "Vienna Police Highlights" report every Friday that's a rundown of "various incidents of general interest."

We'll say.
