Gloucester Police/Fire: Teems charged in Burnham's Field melee

Gloucester Police/Fire

Police filed criminal complaints against four teens fighting at Burnham’s Field Saturday about 8:25 p.m., and arrested a fifth teenager for causing a “disturbance” while “highly intoxicated.”

Two of the teens — a 15-year-old Gloucester girl and 19-year-old Andrea Soke of Beverly — face charges of assault and battery on a pregnant female, after they allegedly kicked one of the other two arrested, 19-year-old Bianca L. Wilson of Beverly, in the stomach.

According to police, Wilson said the two girls knew that she was pregnant, and she believes they kicked her in the stomach because of her pregnancy.

Police filed complaints charging Wilson with assault and battery, and also charged 18-year-old Nicholas A. Sullivan of Gloucester with assault and battery.

After the fight, police also arrested a 16-year-old Larose Avenue resident in the area for trespassing and disorderly conduct. The teen, who police said was “highly intoxicated,” told police several times that he was “drunk.”

The teen then “created a disturbance” by yelling at police. Police filed criminal complaints against the teen for trespassing and disorderly conduct.

Police arrested a 40-year-old man wanted on warrants out of Gloucester and Texas Monday morning at the home on Veterans Way where the man had reportedly been “hiding.”

Gloucester police said they found Corey A. Francis of Ipswich “curled up” and hiding beneath a bed in the home, after residents denied having seen Francis in weeks.

Officers pulled Francis from under the bed after he “refused” to come out. Then, Francis struggled with police until an officer struck his calves to gain control.

Francis additionally faces charges of resisting arrest. Police did not list the charged on the initial warrants.

Sasha H. Cohen, 25, faces a drunken driving charge, after police stopped her for driving on Prospect Street with no headlights just after midnight Sunday and arrested her, after her blood-alcohol level had tested at 0.15 percent.
