Police responded to a 7:14 p.m. report of loud music on Jane Road and determined it was coming from a mother-daughter birthday party. “They will turn the music down,” wrote police. “Surrounding neighbors had all been notified.” Police returned to the address after another report of loud music later on. “Party is breaking up,” wrote police.

Police responded to a 10:23 p.m. report that a woman could hear somebody screaming, “Stop, someone help me” on Atlantic Avenue.

Police received a 4:26 a.m. complaint at the station from a man who said he had been offered the opportunity to purchase a bicycle stolen from an “M” town — either Marblehead or Malden.

Police received a 10:25 a.m. report that kids were selling lemonade in the area of Foster Street and Valley Road from a caller who voiced concern that the kids might get hit by cars speeding down the road; police determined there were no issues. “Kids are sitting in their chairs, with an umbrella and sign,” an officer wrote.
