Police Log: Winchester Track Runner Stalked and Pants are Thrown

The following information was supplied by the Winchester Police Department. It does not indicate a conviction.

Saturday, Nov. 26, 10:01 a.m. – A Winchester man hired a Watertown moving company. The man told police an IPod ($75) was stolen, and the only people that had access to his home was the moving company.

The company reimbursed the man for the IPod.

Wednesday, Nov. 30, 8:43 a.m. – Three 20-foot copper pipes were removed from the Winchester Community School on Highland Avenue.

Thursday, Dec. 1, 10:12 p.m. – A Stoneham man reported to Winchester Hospital for alcohol detoxification. When the man was told he couldn’t have a cigarette at the hospital and that he had to put on a gown he became agitated and threw his pants at the security guard.

The belt buckle hit the guard in the face. Winchester Police warned the man that if they had to come back they would charge him with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

4:30 a.m. – While heading to practice a Winchester track runner told police that a man in his 50s or 60s with gray hair and a goatee asked her to help him get his dog in his car – a silver Mercedes.

So.... did the guy have a dog or didn't he? That is, was he a goofus or a pervert? I think the answer is important to townsfolk, and has a bearing on the tenor of the story...

Yes, he had a dog.

Still seems very inappropriate. Good for the member of the track team that she responded the ways she did. I hope all our kids can learn from this incident.
