Gloucester Police/Fire: Police target kids in Hampden Street vandalism

Police received a call from a Hampden Street resident at 5:45 p.m. Tuesday on reports that a group of kids were knocking on her door and banging on her window.

According to police reports, officials believe it may have been the same group of kids that damaged a Christmas wreath and broke a light fixture at the same home recently.

Police searched the area and did not find the kids. But officers were called back to Hampden Street at 7:20 p.m. Tuesday on reports that the same three kids were once again banging on the home’s doors and windows.

The resident’s grandchildren reportedly chased the three boys down to Gloucester High School. Police searched the area, but did not find the perpetrators.

Police were called to the Addison Gilbert Hospital emergency room at 2:33 a.m. Wednesday on reports of an unruly patient. According to police the patient calmed down when police arrived on scene, he was not charged.

A choking child was transported to Beverly Hospital from an undisclosed Gloucester address at 8:50 p.m. Tuesday. No further information was available.
