EG Police Reports: Domestic Problems, Bomb Threat

by | Jun 18, 2014

These reports come from the East Greenwich Police Department and are public information. An arrest does not mean the individual has been convicted of a crime.

Saturday, June 7

4:37 p.m. – Police arrested an East Greenwich man, 50, for domestic simple assault and disorderly conduct and two bench warrants after his girlfriend reported he had hit her in the face with a closed fist three times. Police noted the woman’s right eye was black. Police found the man at the woman’s apartment and made the arrest. The man was processed at the station and transported to the Adult Correctional Institutions in Cranston after he was arraigned and unable to make bail.

Sunday, June 8

1:36 p.m. – Police arrested a Hope woman, 24, on a bench warrant and for violating a no-contact order, a felony, after she was pulled over on First Avenue for speeding. Routine checks turned up the district court bench warrant for failing to appear and the no-contact order for the man who was sitting in the passenger seat of her car. Police took the woman into custody. They found later this was her fourth domestic violence offense, so the charge was made a felony offense (third domestic violence offence or more). She was taken to the ACI in Cranston.

7:26 p.m. – Police arrested an East Greenwich man, 45, on a bench warrant after police saw him walking on Main Street and knew about the warrant. He was taken into custody and processed at the station.

Monday, June 9

12:26 a.m. – Police arrested a West Warwick man, 25, on an affidavit from West Warwick police after he was stopped while riding a bike on South County Trail. Routine checks turned up the affidavit. Police took the man into custody; he was later released to West Warwick police.

Tuesday, June 10

11:05 a.m. – An East Greenwich woman told police she’d been bit by a dog while walking on Woodbridge Drive. She said the dog left the yard and bit her. The woman said the dog’s owner called the dog off, but but not before the dog bit her.

12:37 p.m. – Police arrested a West Warwick man, 27, for domestic disorderly conduct and vandalism after his girlfriend, an EG resident, accused him of damaging the hood of her car by jumping on it after an argument.  The woman’s grandmother witnessed the altercation and said the West Warwick man threatened his girlfriend, saying “You’re gonna die.” He had grabbed the 3-year-old they have in common and threatened to keep him. The grandmother admitted she then intervened, slapping the man in the face to get him to relinquish the child, which she did. The man was taken into custody; while the man was being held at the station, police noticed the back of his head was bloody. Because the man made a threat that he would kill himself, he was taken by rescue to Kent Hospital.

2:20 p.m. – Police were called to the shopping plaza at 1000 Division St. after a bomb threat at the Walgreens there. The state police bomb squad and EGPD’s bomb-sniffing canine were called. The manager of Walgreens told police a caller had demanded he activate ten $500 gift cards or the caller would blow up the store. The manager remained on the phone while another employee called 911. The bomb squad checked the premise, finding no bomb.
