A disruptive college party on Ocean Avenue at 12:04 a.m. earned the homeowner a $100 fine and a warning of arrest if it happens again. A property owner on Forest Avenue got the same warning for the same reason a short time later.

Jerry A. James Jr., 29, 14 Monument Square, Charlestown, was arrested, as logged at 5:29 a.m., by patrolmen Jonathan Duzz and Roberson Troncoso on a charge of being disorderly. Investigating a complaint about a suspicious person, police say James caused a scene.

Jorge L. Rivera, 22, no address, was arrested, as logged at 1:12 p.m., on First Street by patrolmen John Burke and Erik Manninen on charges of attempted murder, domestic assault and battery, larceny, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, threatening to commit a crime and cruelty to animals.

Following a three-car accident on Traders Way at 4:55 p.m., a 21-year-old Salem man was taken to Salem Hospital with injuries. He was also cited for driving with a suspended license.

Walking down the hall to her apartment on First Street, a woman reported someone walking behind her. Reaching the apartment, a man came the door and yelled, “Why don’t you just go kill yourself!” She told police at 7 p.m. that she does not know the man. She was advised to call them if it happens again.

At 8:22 p.m., a woman on Salem Street told police that she’d been slapped by her ex-girlfriend’s mother. Both the woman and the mother were told to seek satisfaction in the courts.


Residents at a loud party on Harris Street were warned that arrests could follow further disturbances. A citation costing $100 was issued, according to the log at 12:09 a.m.

Police reported that barking pit bulls on Jefferson Avenue erupt at anyone passing by, according to the log at 1:42 a.m. The animal control officer was notified.
