It was very quiet with no problems reported as shoppers celebrated Black Friday.
Police dispatchers in Akron, Fairlawn and Copley, Bath and Jackson townships reported early Friday of no problems overnight.
“Nothing, nothing at all,” said a dispatcher with the Jackson Township Police Department with Westfield Belden Village Mall.
“We’ve got nothing going on,” said an Akron police dispatcher.
“So far, it’s been pretty good,” said a Bath Township police dispatcher.
