Gloucester Police/Fire

A Forrest Street man is facing a domestic assault and battery charge in the wake of a weekend incident at his home, city police said.

According to police, officers responded to the Forrest Street address Saturday at 9:16 p.m. to assist with the state Department of Children and Families.

Representatives of the state agency told police they received a report about drug use and a domestic assault and battery that happened on Friday. According to the police report, 44-year-old Daniel Rowe began throwing things at the victim, then picked up a water bottle, filled it with water and began hitting the victim.

Rowe was arrested while DCF representatives and other police officers remained at the house to work out a plan for dealing with the children. Both parties were also informed of their restraining order rights.

After the weekend nor’easter, police responded to a number of different snow-related service calls and incidents.

In one such incident, somebody shoveled snow onto a police cruiser while an officer was driving near Rogers Street Friday at 11:39 a.m.

When the officer approached the Hovey Street man, he began yelling at the officer, according to the police report, but there were no arrests.

Saturday just before 10 a.m., police responded to a report of snow being thrown in the middle of the intersection of Webster Street and Eastern Avenue.

According to the police report, however, a Department of Public Works employee was clearing the sidewalk around Veterans’ Memorial School.

Saturday around 11:30 a.m., police responded to an Eastern Avenue business illegally dumping snow. Police wrote up a report from an Eastern Avenue resident about snow being dumped on the sidewalk and notified the DPW.

Police and firefighters also responded to a Commercial Street property Saturday at 2:48 p.m. when a burst water pipe was reported. According to the police report, water was leaking through he ceiling.
