Darlin R. Hernandez, 31, of 10 First St., Salem, was arrested at 7:17 p.m. by Patrolmen Thomas Cunningham and Jonathan Duzz on two counts of malicious destruction of property. In the same incident, Melvin A. Phillip, 31, of 21 Parsons St., Peabody, was arrested on a charge of violating a protective order. Checking the noise outside on Winthrop Street, a couple were dismayed to see a man they identified as Hernandez taking a baseball bat to one of their cars. He also ripped the storm door from the woman’s apartment. The woman also noted the presence of ex-husband Phillip in Hernandez’s vehicle. Following the arrest and release on bail of the suspects, she complained to police that Hernandez was seen driving past her apartment twice. She was advised to call police if she saw him again.

Police took the report of an assault on Savoy Road, as logged at 7:37 p.m.

A family of three tossed out of their apartment in Lynn turned up in the lobby of a Salem building. The trio, including a 2-week-old daughter, were taken back to the Lynn line, where Lynn police returned them to their apartment. The landlord was contacted.
