A Holly Street woman reported at 8:43 a.m. that another woman had allowed her dog to run around her closed yard. Police found the woman and issued her a no-trespass order.

Police responded to a 10:34 p.m. report of a domestic dispute on Nimitz Way and determined that a couple was arguing “over him drinking when he came home from work.”


A pit bull lunged twice at an officer who responded to the Museum Place Mall after an 11:12 a.m. report of a dog barking. While speaking with the dog’s owner regarding the barking complaint, “the large white pit bull lunged at this officer with both front paws landing on my chest,” the officer wrote. The man pulled the dog away by the leash, but the dog again lunged across a bench before being pulled back by its owner. The man said the dog’s tags were “in storage.” The officer informed the man that he would forward the report to the animal control officer and advised him to leave the area.

Police took a 1:24 p.m. report of a phone scam in which a man told a Lafayette Street woman that she had “some sort of debt and would be arrested if she did not make a payment.” The woman said she had no outstanding debts and that she believed her information was accessed from a loan service she had previously used.

The Fire Department freed six people stuck in an elevator for about 20 minutes at Marsh Hall at Salem State University around 6:30 p.m.
