Police: Man forces way into woman's Peabody residence

PEABODY — Police say a 53-year-old man at a trailer park on Newbury Street pushed his way into a neighbor’s residence on Tuesday night and threatened the woman with a knife.

Police were granted a warrant for the man with charges of assault with a dangerous weapon, breaking and entering in the nighttime for a felony, wanton destruction of property over $250 and intimidation of a witness. As of last night, he had not been arrested.

The incident occurred shortly before 8 p.m., when the man forced his way into the woman’s trailer and then grabbed a steak knife out of an open drawer and threatened her with it, according to the incident log and an interview with an officer.

A brief struggle ensued, during which a picture was knocked off a wall and a door knocked off its track.

The two apparently knew each other, but it was unclear how.

The woman refused medical transport following the incident.
