While on patrol, an officer observed hospital staff running after a male, who was later identified as a patient. The patient was placed in the patrol vehicle to be returned to the hospital. While inside the vehicle, the patient kicked the rear door, causing damage. A charging review will be submitted to the town attorney for determination of charges.

Officers were dispatched to a report of domestic violence in progress on South Bunker Hill Drive. Both reporting parties stated the suspect had assaulted them and had left the residence. They were later transported to the hospital. The case is closed pending further information.
