A woman on Bragg Street reported at 1:54 a.m. that somebody had thrown a beer bottle at her vehicle, smashing a rear light.

A Moulton Road woman reported at 8:50 a.m. that her house had been egged. Police wrote: “The officer spoke with the resident and she will wash the egg off. There was no damage and no suspects.”

A Reynolds Road resident reported possible fraud at 10:27 a.m. Police wrote later: “The officer stated that there is a mix-up with the Yellow Pages and they have the residence incorrectly listed as a plumbing company. They will attempt to resolve the problem on their own.”

Traffic lights were knocked down during a hit-and-run near 598 Lowell St., according to a 10:29 a.m. log item. Police didn’t report finding the suspected vehicle, which was described as a black and white pickup truck.

Officers responded to the gazebo on the Salem Commons after a 4:03 p.m. report that a man and woman were fighting and determined the man was actually teaching the woman self-defense moves. “The two were advised to find a less public forum to practice so as not to alarm the public,” wrote an officer.
