GROVELAND — Chief Jeffrey T. Gillen reports that the Groveland Police Department will seek a criminal summons against a resident following an investigation into his allegedly following a woman in his vehicle earlier this week.
A 65-YEAR-OLD MAN, OF GROVELAND, will be charged with Disorderly Conduct and Disturbing the Peace.
On Monday, June 29, a Groveland resident reported to police that they had responded on Monday afternoon to an ad on a Groveland community Facebook page where a resident was giving away excess dog food. The resident drove to the house, located approximately one mile from her own home, and picked up the free dog food. As she turned to head back home, she reported to police that the GROVELAND MAN in a vehicle turned around multiple times in an obvious effort to follow her.
Through their investigation, which was led by Detective Steven Petrone, Groveland Police determined that the man had disturbed neighbors during the incident, and another motorist reported having to drive off the roadway to avoid him while he was allegedly engaged in a verbal altercation with the woman he followed.
Police subsequently identified the man, interviewed him and he will be summonsed to Haverhill District Court at a later date for a Clerk Magistrate’s hearing.
