Manchester Police/Fire: School expert takes injured owl under wing

Manchester Police/Fire

MANCHESTER — Police responded to School Street near the Route 128 ramps at 7:20 a.m. Tuesday after motorists called to report an injured owl in the middle of the road.

Police contacted Manchester Essex Regional High School, and a wildlife rehabilitation expert from the school took custody of the owl.

On Tuesday, at 9:15 a.m. a Washington Street resident reported somebody was trying to enter their home to steal their clothes.

Police indicated they believe the incident was a mental health issue, and the person trying to break into the house on Washington Street was put in touch with their caretaker.

Police assisted Fire Department officials at 5:40 p.m. on Monday when they received a call from Family Medical Associates. The town resident was transported to Beverly Hospital with stroke-like systems.

The apartment complex on 12 Summer St. drew more attention than other addresses on Monday night.

One mother from the complex called to report her daughter had taken her purse and cell phone at 8 p.m. Police who investigated, however, said the daughter was already out of the town by train and the mother did not press charges.

Shortly before 10 p.m., another resident from the complex had a negative reaction to medication and was transported to Beverly Hospital.

At 11:05 a.m. on Tuesday, police assisted fire department officials when a Forrester Road resident called for medical aid. The resident was not transported to any hospital.
