Two arrested after Harbor Street dispute

SALEM — Police say two women were arrested on various charges Thursday night after police responded to a report that they were yelling at each other on Harbor Street.

Daylisa C. Alonzo, 29, of 32 Harbor St., was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct, assault and battery on a police officer, and interfering with a police officer.

Margarita Scott, 35, of the same address, was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and interfering with a police officer.

An 8:16 p.m. report of a landlord-tenant dispute brought police to the pair’s address, where they located two women “yelling and screaming” at each other from across the street, “causing people who were walking to stop and look in their direction,” according to the incident log.

It turned out the two women were actually neighbors, one of whom had apparently left a bicycle on the other’s porch, starting the altercation, Lt. Conrad Prosniewski said.

While police spoke with the two women, they each began recording the interaction on their cellphones. When police went to seize the phones as evidence, the women passed them to other people who had gathered, leading to the charges of interfering with a police officer, Prosniewski said. Police weren’t able to find the phones.

Alonzo pushed an officer in the face as she was being arrested, hence the assault and battery charge, Prosniewski said.
