Nobody was hurt when a woman allegedly chased two people out of her house with a pooper-scooper Monday.
Davenport police officer Robert Bytnar said police were called to a house on West 10th Street about 2:20 p.m. on a report of a woman who allegedly had attacked someone with a pooper-scooper.
Officer Bytnar said police were told that a man and a woman had overstayed their welcome at the house, so the owner chased them out with the pooper scooper.
As the two ran from the house, police said they dropped a collection of Beanie Baby toys. Police later escorted them from the spot where they dropped the toys to a storage facility where they would be secured.
Officer Bytnar said that while the pooper-scooper was not loaded, it still was dangerous.
"We believe it was empty, but it had residue on it," he said.
