Police received a 4:12 p.m. report that a woman’s daughter had been walking home on Pleasant Street after a driver’s education class when two men in a moving van made “cat calls” at her and blocked her from walking by. The incident “scared her and made her run all the way home,” police wrote. An officer was unable to locate the men.

An anonymous caller reported at 10:09 p.m. that youths were “yelling and swearing” in the parking lot of Devereux Beach. An officer wrote later: “Spoke to the kids and told them to move along.”

A Pleasant Street woman reported at 10:07 p.m. that a man was “threatening her and is leaving her nasty notes in the house and took out the bulbs from the lights so she can’t see where she is going.” Police wrote later: “Dispute was over a light in the hallway.”

A “young female” reported at 10:28 p.m. that “she was down at the beach about 30 minutes ago and saw a young girl with red hair walking with an older male with a dog leash and they were speaking Russian to each other,” according to the log. Police wrote: “They had since left but [she] wanted to report it as it had bothered her.”

A man was hospitalized after an 11:07 p.m. report that he had been injured near the water on Commercial Street.



A John Road woman reported at 10:07 a.m. that there was a sick skunk in her yard. “Skunk was deceased [u]pon arrival,” wrote an officer.

Police responded to a 4:59 p.m. report that there was a wild turkey in the parking lot of Santarpio’s Pizza on Newbury Street. An officer subsequently determined that the animal wasn’t “bothering anyone at this time,” but police returned to the location after a 6:10 p.m. report that environmental police were requesting assistance in catching the “nuisance turkey.” An officer wrote later that they were “unable to catch turkey at this time” and that the environmental police were planning to return the next day to try again.
