Police investigated a report of burglary at For Your Convenience, a store on Main Street, at 4:39 a.m. They took note of a suspect wearing a gray sweatshirt, blue jeans and possibly carrying a case of beer down the railroad tracks toward Howley Street, but could not locate him.



A street performer deemed “undesirable” got the hook at Essex and Central streets, according to the log at 6:58 p.m. She had a license but agreed to go nevertheless.

A lack of witnesses meant that a violent confrontation between two motorists did not lead to arrests at Mason and Grove streets, according to the log at 7:06 p.m. A father and daughter hailed police from the side of the road saying they’d been attacked by a man on a moped. “The moped hit him from behind,” according to the dad. He got out only to find the moped operator “came at him yelling and screaming.” The operator then put him in a headlock. The moped driver let go only when dad bit his hand. For his part, the moped driver said he’d almost been hit by the Honda Accord and tried to tell him as much, pulling up alongside until the dad pulled over and came out yelling. At some point, the moped driver said, he “took off down Mason Street in front of the motor vehicle. The motor vehicle then passed him again, got in front of him and slammed on the brakes.” That caused the moped to hit the vehicle, at which point, according to story number 2, dad “then got out, yelling, swearing and swinging.” Both vehicles were damaged. The moped driver did not want to press charges over the bite. Police suggested they could take their dispute to civil court.


If kids were throwing eggs at cars on Lafayette Street at 12:39 a.m. — police weren’t able to locate them.
