---- — A Burnham Street resident told police that her daughter had been harassed at Gloucester High School Thursday at 1:40 p.m.

Her daughter told police that several kids called her derogatory names in school that day. She said she couldn’t find the right person in the school administration to report it to, and went home.

She also said that, a month earlier, she had been assaulted by a girl at school. Police brought her back to the school and had her speak with a school official who said she would begin investigating.

Paramedics rushed a man to Addison Gilbert Hospital after he suffered an apparent heart attack at the Lobsta Land restaurant Thursday at 11:53 a.m. Police and paramedics from Beauport Ambulance reached the restaurant first and administered cardiopulmonary resuscitation until Fire Department paramedics arrived. The man died later at Addison Gilbert, according to the police report.

A man called police from Gee Avenue at 7:14 a.m. on Friday to report that a coyote had nearly attacked him while he was walking his dog. The man said he saw the coyote about 30 feet in front of him, near the dam at the reservoir. The coyote, he said, started yowling and barking. He said he chased it off with a stick, but wanted to report the incident.

The owner of the Cape Ann Brewing Company called police Thursday at 2:43 p.m, and told them someone was going around the city pretending to be him. He said he almost lost one of his largest clients because of the impersonation. Police are investigating.

An Anchor Lane resident told police Thursday at 11:03 p.m. that he didn’t receive a $600 package he had been expecting since October.

He said someone either stole the package, or the delivery company never dropped it off. He said the company required him to file a police report.
