Peabody

Friday

Eliane Costa, 40, of 154 Lowell St., Peabody, was arrested, as logged at 2:15 p.m., for driving without a license. Police had been investigating a two-car collision. The other driver earned a ticket for running a red light.

A woman on Oakland Street found three bikes abandoned in her backyard and brought them to the police station, according to the log at 2:51 p.m.

An attempted break at Elginwood Road, logged at 3:15 p.m., involved “suspects reported to be two white males with black T-shirts” fleeing “towards lakes.” A 20-year-old Middleton man will be summonsed for an “attempt to commit a crime.”

You can’t get something for nothing. Police taught the lesson to a Nickerson Road woman who got unsolicited checks with instruction to “send the over payment of cash back to them.” The checks are bogus, police advised, and the woman would be responsible for repaying all the money if she cashed them.

A dad alerted police at 5:13 p.m. that his son has PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) and “is a veteran and wants to harm himself.” Police alerted other departments and began a search.

A man will be summonsed after an acquaintance reported passing him on Margin Street when he “struck him with an elbow punch,” as logged at 6:41 p.m.

Police took a report at 7:59 p.m. that a football player at Bishop Fenwick High School had suffered a possible spinal injury after a hit to the head. A 17-year-old Billerica man was taken to Salem Hospital by Atlantic Ambulance.

Two 56-year-old men on Route 1 will be summonsed for assault after police responded at 10:15 p.m. to a report of someone trying to start a fight.

Two vehicles on Main Street were vandalized, scratched, as reported at 10:55 p.m.
