Police Reports

Case Description: Complainant (Galatea) accuses Defendant (Polyphemus) of sexual harassment and first-degree murder. The Cyclops, Polyphemus, was totally in love with nymph Galatea and chased her all around. When the giant caught her with her real BF, Acis, he squashed the handsome shepherd boy with a rock. Galatea was crazy sad and transformed Acis into the river that's now named after him.

Case Status: Case dismissed. Polyphemus ate every investigator that came to question him.
