A woman at Gateway Towers, 1100 Gateway Ave., told police someone put "green" paint on her walls and mopped her floor. She spoke to management about the matter but nothing has been done. Police didn’t see any green paint but the floors appeared to be clean. Due to the woman’s age, 86, police asked a series of questions which she was able to answer successfully. Police contacted her daughter and informed her of the matter. The woman is elderly but doesn’t appear to be a safety hazard to herself. Her apartment was clean and it appears she is able to take care of herself at this time. Police asked the woman to call back at any time.
