Police were unable to locate a man who was reported to be exposing himself in the area of 293 Lafayette St. at 1:45 a.m.

A 2:08 p.m. report that a female was yelling brought police to 43 Federal St., where they determined a man and woman were arguing over the former’s drinking habits.

A Broadway woman reported at 3:58 p.m. that her son was “not listening to her” and requested an officer speak with him. “She relates that he needs to pick up his dirty clothing and make sure his dog goes outside,” wrote police. An officer spoke to son and wrote later that he said he would “listen to his mother and do what she asks.”

About 8 p.m., an officer spoke to a woman who was in Riley Plaza. “She stated she was looking for her cousin,” wrote an officer. “I advised her that this area is considered to be a public park and anyone in the area after dark is subject to arrest for trespassing. She was advised to leave the area and did so without incident.”


A Buffum Street man reported at 1:14 a.m. that he was on workman’s comp and that “people from workers comp are following him around.” The man said “he is fine with them following him but relates [they] are speeding around his neighborhood making it unsafe for the kids that live in the area.”

A 3:20 a.m. report of a possible domestic dispute brought police to 23 High St. Daniel Richard Wendt, 23, of 13 Willow Ave., Salem, was subsequently arrested on charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

A woman reported at 8:17 a.m. that after a cab had dropped her off at Market Basket on Highland Avenue, “she gave the cab driver $6 for a round trip and told him that she would be about five minutes.” Police wrote: “She then ran into the store to do some shopping. She admitted that it took her a little longer than she had anticipated, and when she came out of the store, the cab was gone. She called the owner of the cab company who she is familiar with and explained what had taken place. The owner stated that he would talk to his driver about what transpired. She was advised to call another cab company in the future.”
