Featured Incident

On January 18, police were called to Washington Street at about 8:25 p.m. for a domestic disturbance.

Police were met by the victim upon arrival, and she was visibly upset and crying. According to the woman, she was involved in an argument with her ex-boyfriend, who had dropped her off on Washington Street and left the area.

The woman said she voluntarily got into the man's car in Medford, and they began to argue when she told him that she did not want to be in a dating relationship with him. She reportedly told the man that she wanted to cut off communication with him.

At this point, the man allegedly became very angry and began driving his vehicle erratically and at high speeds with the woman still inside as a passenger. The woman said multiple times that she wanted to exit the car but the man would not slow down to let her out. According to the woman, the driver said that he was going to crash into another vehicle while in Route 93 North.

The woman said she was in fear for her safety because of the ex-boyfriend's enraged state. While the vehicle was moving, the woman attempted to make a call from her cell phone. The man, according to the victim, grabbed the phone and would not let her make a call initially. Soon after, the woman was able to call her father, who while on speaker phone said that he called the police.

At that point, the driver allegedly stopped the vehicle, let the woman out and drove away.

Police advised the woman of her rights to file a restraining order, and the family said they wanted to discuss possible charges at a later time in a calm environment.
