Tribune Tuesdays: A Suspicious Husband

From: The Oakland Tribune, 16 October 1912

Suspicious Husband Cause of Near-Riot

The suspicious actions of a suspicious husband led to the police taking Lutero Cavasso temporarily into custody last night at San Pablo avenue and Twenty-third street. A telephone message came to the police that a man was hiding behind a fence in the neighborhood and that two shots had been fired.

Patrolmen Connolly and Conroy and Corporal Charles McCarthy hurried to the scene and found Cavasso. The shots proved to be no more than the missing fire of a motorcycle. Cavasso explained that he had been watching his home to see whether his wife was coming home with some other man.
