Nov. 4, 7:57 p.m. – A resident on James Street indicated to police that recently had had gotten an e-mail from Nigeria saying he had won money, but had to send $520 to Nigeria to collect it. Upon further discussion with his family he realized that he was a victim of a scam, but now individuals with no caller IDs are calling him asking for more money.
Police advised the man that he can ask the phone company to stop the calls.
Two days earlier, the man sent $200 to a bank in Africa, who then sent him an ATM card and requested he deposit another $2,500, which in itself apparently was not the first scam the man fell prey to according to police reports.
Nov. 5, 7:07 p.m. – A woman on Janet Road reported that she found a bone in her yard. Upon further inspection, it belonged to a small animal.
Nov. 5, 9:22 p.m. – Two officers were dispatched to a restaurant on Drum Hill for a disturbance in progress.
Upon arrival, the first officer on the scene talked to a man who said he was visiting his girlfriend who worked there when another man who allegedly had been paid $200 in 2012 to beat him up in Lowell entered the restaurant.
The other man had been ordered by a judge to stay away from the boyfriend, and when the other man saw the boyfriend at the restaurant, he said to the girlfriend, “I wish there were no cameras here so I could beat your boyfriend up again.”
Although there were no other harassment orders in place, the boyfriend was advised to get one and the manager was advised to issue a no trespassing order to the man.
