In an attempt to break up the crowd, the owner of the home was instructed to call police.
“The person we’re looking for, Francheska Delacruz, took offense to the person calling the police for some reason, and she became very upset and started to assault the person who called police — punching and kicking her, giving her a bruise on her leg,” says Springfield Police Sgt. John Delaney.
Meanwhile, police say Francheska’s boyfriend was getting into a scuffle of his own with someone else who was at the party.
“While this was going on, Francheska thought it was a good idea to take a baseball bat and went to the victim’s car and smashed out every window with the baseball bat, dented the fender and then took a knife out of her pocket and slashed all the tires on the victim’s car,” says Delaney.
By the time officers arrived to the home on Quebec Street, Francheska and her boyfriend had already fled.
“Flash-forward to a week later and Francheska Delacruz, because she was still upset that somebody called the police to stop the party — for some reason this upset her very much — she came by,” says Delaney. “The victim was standing in the window on Quebec Street. She took out a gun and pointed it at the victim and said, ‘Have your boyfriend come out here, we’ve got something for him.’”
Police say gunshots were never fired, but they haven’t been able to track down Francheska. Police say she’s sent the victim threatening text messages since the incident.
“She has several restraining orders against her, as a matter of fact she has four restraining orders against her from different people which would tell somebody that she has a violent nature,” says Delaney. “Hopefully we can put her into custody, maybe get her some help in regards to the violent tendencies she’s been portraying.”
If you see Francheska Delacruz, call 911 or you can send police an anonymous tip. Just text it to “CRIMES” or 274637 and in the message type “SOLVE” and your tip.
