12:49 p.m. – A North Kingstown man told police a suspicious man had tried to open his car door while it was parked in the lot at Ocean State Veterinary Hospital. The NK man had left his car and was waiting in the car of a friend when he saw the unknown man – white, skinny, about 5’8” with light brown or reddish hair – walk up to his car and pull on the front door. The NK man confronted the other man, who ran across the parking lot to another car and drove away. The NK man followed the other man, who was driving at 70 mph on South County Trail according to the NK man. He turned back to OSVH when the other car turned right onto Middle Road, then called the police. He also talked to the receptionist at OSVH, who said the same man had opened the door and told her he didn’t realize the hospital was open, then left. The NK man had gotten the license plate of the other man’s car and it came back to a man with an active bench warrant. EGPD also had records of two previous arrests of the man, including a burglary arrest in 2009.
