The ex-girlfriend called police at 7:19 p.m. on Saturday and said that she went to see the man, Michael Pupulo, 21, of 803 Haverhill St. in Rowley, at Market Basket Friday night. When he saw her, she said, he told her to go away. She followed him to his car and got in. According to police reports, she said he told her to get out or he would drag her out.

He then forcibly removed the woman from the car, left her on the ground, and drove off, according to the police report.

Police have charged a Melrose man with assault and battery after he allegedly punched an employee at the Ocean View Inn on Atlantic Road.

The employee told police, Sunday at 1:43 a.m. that a man, later identified as Mark Curran, 32, of 187 Lebanon St., Melrose, was causing a disturbance outside. When he went out to tell Curran to quiet down, Curran punched the employee in the head.

Curran was a guest at a wedding at Ocean View, and left before officers arrived. Other guests gave police his name and address, according to the police report.
