Three people were taken to the hospital after a two-car accident at the intersection of Jackson Street and Jefferson Avenue around 4:15 p.m. Jayla Russo of 11 Atkins Ave., Lynn, was cited for failure to use care while turning.

Sally Ouellette, 46, of 178 South Pleasant St., Bradford, was arrested at 4:33 p.m. at Canal and Pond streets and charged with driving with a revoked license, illegal possession of a class B substance, and illegal possession of a class E substance.

Police are investigating a couple of incidents of graffiti vandalism. Several areas of the Flynntan building on Boston Street were marked by graffiti, including a brick wall, metal door, wooden fence, garage door, concrete wall and metal utility pole. Among the identifiable words were “etos” and “panic.” Fresh graffiti was also discovered on two utility boxes on Traders Way, including the word “twerp” written in black paint.

When police responded to a harassment complaint at an apartment on Washington Street at 7:51 p.m., a man told them he had been receiving multiple calls from a telemarketing service. He was advised to not answer the calls and to pursue blocking the phone number.


Police responded to a “dispute over toilet paper” at 12:38 a.m. on Lafayette Street.

An 8:03 a.m. report of a woman screaming led police to an apartment at 2 Parlee St.. The woman told police she was upset because she could not find her inhaler.

A woman escaped serious injury when her car struck an unoccupied parked vehicle on Federal Street about 11 a.m. and flipped over onto its roof. Police said Abbye Parks, 31, of 88 Grove St., Lynn, was driving “at a speed greater than reasonable or proper” when her 2005 Toyota Scion rear-ended a parked 2005 Jeep, pushing it forward about 10 feet. Parks’ car then struck a fire hydrant, rolled over to its left and landed on its roof. Parks was taken to Salem Hospital for evaluation but was not seriously hurt, according to police. She was cited for speeding. Both vehicles were towed.
