A 5:31 p.m. report that a suspicious man was “trying to enter the house using a basketball hoop” brought police to a Lafayette Street address. Subsequently arrested was Joseph Green, 51, of 42 Commercial St., Marblehead, on a charge of vandalizing property.


An individual on Commercial Street was transported to Salem Hospital after a 7:49 a.m. report that his or her wrists had been injured by handcuffs during an arrest the previous day. “Today they are cut up and bleeding and caller has had to miss a day of work,” wrote police.

Police responded to Washington Street after a woman reported at 11:38 a.m. that she had seen a man with a red beard “pleasuring himself” in a red vehicle in front of Crosby’s Marketplace. Police wrote: “Party left as officers were arriving on scene, calling party did not want to speak to officers there, she stated that she did not see any parts of him, just him making movements and faces that would be associated with the actions of pleasuring himself.”

Police and the Fire Department responded to Tidewinds Terrace after a 2:20 p.m. report that a vehicle’s gas tank had caught fire 6 feet from a building, but the fire had apparently extinguished itself by the time they arrived.
