Man Allegedly Goes on Bloody Rampage
We compile interesting crime stories from the region.
One Woonsocket man allegedly went on a rampage this week that stretched from Cumberland Farms to his residence down the street. When police arrived at the convenience store, they found trash cans turned over, hoses from the gas pumps on the ground and a large window at a nearby store broken. Moments later, the 39-year-old man’s roommate called police, claiming her roommate had returned home intoxicated and covered in blood. (Never a good combination.) Police reportedly arrived to find the man in the fetal position in the kitchen, slurring his speech and yelling “take me to jail.” The mayhem didn’t end there, as officers were unable to subdue the main with a Taser and pepper spray. It eventually took several drive stuns to get the man in handcuffs.
At Least She Pulled Over
One Narragansett woman left no surface untainted recently following a peculiar traffic stop. When police found the 23-year-old woman, she was reportedly asleep in her car pulled over on the side of the road with the engine off. After several attempts to rouse her from sleep, the woman (who allegedly smelled of alcohol) finally awoke and reportedly began to puke inside her car, then outside her car and on the road. The woman told officers she had too much to drink, hence why she was pulled over on the side of the road. Since her engine was off and no officers saw her driving that night, the woman was not charged with drunken driving. Her car, however, was towed from the scene.
One of These Things Is Not Like the Other…
Charlestown police pulled over an Exeter teenager last week who was reportedly speeding and discovered pot paraphernalia in his car—marijuana pipe, two joint roaches, a grinder—and…a machete? Police also found $2,655 in cash on him because, as the teen said, he didn’t trust banks.
One Warren man’s conscience may have gotten the better of him this week. Police questioned the 46-year-old man and his girlfriend after a woman’s wallet went missing at the dentist office they were visiting. The pair arrived at police headquarters and denied knowing anything about the missing wallet. Soon after they left headquarters, the man allegedly tried to return the wallet to the dentist’s office by throwing the wallet into the foyer. At that point, the man was charged with a felony count of receiving stolen goods and larceny.
Wicked Witch of the West?
Apparently last week’s strong winds blew in something from the Land of Oz. On Friday the 13th, a 68-year-old man was allegedly assaulted by a woman…using a broomstick. The 54-year-old Portsmouth woman allegedly hit the man multiple times in the chest during an argument. It is unclear whether or not she threatened “his little dog, too."
