Witnesses told police said they’d been celebrating the suspect’s birthday all night and him to leave in the early morning hours.

Sunday, March 6
- A woman on Main Street was harassed and physically attacked by two female and possibly a third male suspect, according to a police report.
At 2:10 a.m., police observed two women running through the Sovereign Bank parking lot on Main Street. They stopped the pair and one told the police they were just going to a friend’s home in Sullivan Square. As they were talking, a man approached the officers and said his wife was just beat up in front of their home on Main Street and that the two women speaking to police were the suspects.
According to the victim, the suspects approached her just minutes before and tried to strike up a conversation, but quickly launched into an attack. They called her a “yuppie” and hit and kicked her multiple times, according to the police report. The victim told police a male was involved as well, but officers were unable to locate that suspect.
When officers questioned the suspects, they said that the alleged victim had, in fact, harassed them, that they were afraid of her and that was why they were running away from the scene.
The victim declined medical attention for a laceration on her knee and police advised all parties to file criminal complaints at the court house in they wanted to. No arrests or charges were made.
