A Harbor Avenue woman reported at 8:39 a.m. that her house had been egged. “She noticed the eggs on Monday night when they got home after being away for the weekend,” wrote police. “She did not want to see an officer but wondered if there had been any other complaints.”

A male was transported to Salem Hospital after an 8:56 a.m. report that he was “falling down” inside the 7-Eleven on Pleasant Street.

Police received a 9:38 a.m. report that a Susan Road woman had gotten a phone call from a “foreign-sounding person” who asked her about her “Windows computer.” Police wrote: “She said she did not have a computer and the call was disconnected.”

The animal control officer reported at 10:12 p.m. that she had seen a barefoot woman holding a baby in front of a car on Roundhouse Road with a man slouched down inside, and that the “whole scene seemed odd.” An officer was unable to locate anything suspicious in the area.



Police received a 2:39 p.m. report that a 2-year-old had gone missing from a Litchfield Road address. Shortly thereafter, the child was located hiding in the house.

A woman reported at 5:20 p.m. that she was upset because her neighbor on Plymouth Road had “just sprayed her daughter and dog with a hose.” Police subsequently determined that an automatic sprinkler had “turned on and squirted the neighbor by accident.”

A 7:30 p.m. report of fire and heavy smoke in an apartment brought police and the Fire Department to 146 Shore Drive. “The resident was performing an automatic cleaner of the oven and left some food in the oven,” an officer wrote later.

A 10:34 p.m. report of a head-on collision brought police to Andover Street and Buttonwood Lane. A 22-year-old Lynn woman was transported to Salem Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The two vehicles were towed.
