Gloucester Police/Fire: Trespassing call brings warrant, drug charges

Gloucester Police/Fire

A report of trespassing in a Perkins Street residence led to the arrest of a man on two warrants and a charge of drug possession Tuesday at 10:24 p.m.

The owner of the residence called police to report that two people were allegedly trespassing in an upstairs apartment. He said he evicted the tenant, but the two — described as the tenant’s sister and her fiance — were living there. When officers responded, the woman provided documents indicating that they had permission to stay there until the eviction court date.

Police, however, found the woman’s fiance, Seth Lospennato, 35, was “hiding” in a back room. He told police he was avoiding them because he had two warrants out for his arrest. Police arrested him and then found a small glass container on top of a television which had a a piece of wood and half a Soboxone pill, a class B drug.

Police responded to a 911 call for a man who was allegedly kicked in the groin at an Elm Street residence Tuesday at 3:22 p.m.

According to the police report, a woman at the house told officers that her daughter and the daughter’s father got into an argument that got physical. The argument ended when the daughter, 14, kicked her father in the groin and the father pushed the daughter. Police are pressing domestic assault and batter charges against both of them, with the girl to be charged as a juvenile.

Police arrested a man for domestic assault after responding to the Maplewood Avenue McDonald’s Wednesday morning.

Officers responded at 5:25 a.m. and found a man, Leonidas Ramirez, 37, of 246 Boston St., Lynn. He said his ex-girlfriend had scratched him across the face after an argument. Both of them work at the McDonald’s.

Police spoke to the woman through an interpreter, who said she got into an argument with Ramirez after he had been calling her to come over to his house. Ramirez, she said, has a restraining order out against her. When she came into work Wednesday, he started fighting with her and pushed her to the ground.
