At 10:10 a.m., police responded to the Woburn Public Library concerning an assault. A woman said she was performing community service at the library. She had several short conversations with an elderly man over the past few days. While she was raking, the man grabbed her face and kissed her on the lips. He then said “I can’t do this anymore” and walked back into the library. Police spoke to the 73-year-old man in the library and he initially denied kissing the woman or putting his hands on her. He said that he only said “hi.” Police also spoke to a witness who confirmed the woman’s story. Once told there was a witness, the man admitted to kissing the woman, but gave no reason. The woman said she did not want to pursue charges, but wanted the incident documented and for the man to leave her alone. The Woburn Public Library wanted the man removed from the premises. Police told the man to leave and that the library would notify him that he’s no longer allowed on the grounds.
