On Monday, Oct. 7, an officer was called to Mount Pleasant Street for a disturbance between two men.
Upon arrival, police found a man yelling in the street. He was also with three women who were standing on the sidewalk. The responding officer calmed down the man in the street, and he pointed to a second man standing in the front doorway across the street. The second man continued to stand in the door without saying anything.
The initial resident said he began yelling at the second man because he knows he’s been causing problems in the neighborhood with the two women he was standing with. There is an abuse prevention order against the man, but when the officer asked if the second resident had said anything or touched him, the reporting resident said no.
When speaking with the man across the street, police were told by the man that he was recording everything with a cell phone that was placed just inside the doorway. The officer asked him to stop recording the conversation, and he did.
The man told police he was standing in his front doorway with the door open and said he was waiting for a delivery. He confirmed that the other man began yelling at him from across the street.
Police determined there was no violation of the order, and all parties were advised.
