At 10:03 a.m., police received a call about a two-car accident on Main Street. A car was rear-ended by another vehicle when the first car was stopped at a red light at Main Street and Mishawum Road. There were no reported injuries.

At 11:53 a.m., a Woburn resident reported credit card fraud. He said his uncle and aunt recently died, but their credit card was used eight times since their deaths. The man said he already cancelled the card, but wanted to alert police. Police took a report.

At 3:27 p.m., police responded to a two-car accident on Salem Street. One motorist rear-ended another vehicle. One person was taken to Winchester Hospital and his vehicle was towed from the scene.

At 9:32 p.m., a Woburn resident reported receiving threatening text messages from his estranged girlfriend. They have been having disagreements about child support for their teenage daughter. The Woburn resident showed police the texts, which allegedly included the woman threatening to falsely claim abuse if he didn’t pay her. Police spoke to the ex-girlfriend and told her the texts could be considered threatening, but she said she didn't mean them as threatening. Police spoke to the ex-boyfriend and explained the situation. While talking to the man, the ex-girlfriend reportedly sent two more text messages to him. She said she was going to Woburn Police to file harassment charges against him.
