Police responded to 142 Canal St. after a 10:14 p.m. report that a band was playing and spoke with a man who was “already in process of breaking down the band equipment.” Police wrote: “He was advised of the noise complaint and advised to end practice earlier in the future.”

A female reported at 11:41 p.m. that she had been harassed by a male at the White Dove Market on Loring Avenue. “She stated she and her friends were attempting to enter the store and an unidentified employee...held the doors closed.” The female told police the male made an inappropriate hand gesture, opened the door as she walked away and “whistled and yelled at her.” An officer spoke to the male, who said he actually made a different hand gesture to signify the store was closed. The male said the female had then become upset and “flipped him the middle finger,” and that, as she walked away, he opened the door and yelled, “Go away!” The female was advised that a report would be on file should she choose to “pursue charges at Salem District Court.”


A Green Street woman reported at 12:04 a.m. that her ex-boyfriend had banged on her front door and windows. The woman also told police that the man “did leave a pair of sunglasses in her mailbox and that she did not want them.” Police took the sunglasses, advised her about her rights to a restraining order and told her to contact the police for further assistance should she need it.

A 6:07 a.m. report of a suspicious person brought police to the Harbor Walk behind the Beverly Cooperative Bank, where they found a man “feeding a large flock of ducks.” Police wrote: “He was advised to stop feeding the ducks because it was also attracting rats.” The man said he had been feeding the ducks since February, when they were ducklings, and that the request saddened him because he had grown “to have a relationship with them.” Nevertheless, “he said he would stop and understood that it was a public health issue,” police wrote.
