Gloucester Police/Fire: Man charged after AGH disturbance


GLOUCESTER — After allegedly injecting heroin, drinking alcohol and threatening to harm himself, a Gloucester man is facing charges of assault and battery on a police officer, disorderly conduct and disturbing the police after an Thursday morning incident at Addison Gilbert Hospital.

According to the police report, Keith Duwart, 41, of Echo Avenue was transported to the hospital after the threats against himself and ingesting the drugs around 7:45 a.m.

Police were called, however, to find that Duwart had tried to escape the hospital and his restraints. Duwart was also causing a scene in the emergency room, hurling expletives at police officers in the ER, which was filled with a number of elderly patients, according to the report.

The report also states that, after police asked him to quiet down, he screamed more expletives at police, spitting on one officer’s shirt.

Duwart stopped only after a nurse injected him with a sedative, according to police.

A Gloucester man is facing a charge of malicious destruction of property after an incident reported on Wednesday.

Ansari Reza, 37, was charged after police responded to a Pleasant Street business when an employee called about the doors being sealed shut with Super Glue at around 12 p.m. Wednesday.

After viewing security footage from a business across the street, police observed a male with a white jacket and black sleeves walk up to the doors of the Pleasant Street Company and pull out some Super Glue at 10 p.m. on Tuesday.

The business owner told police she had kicked a man out of the shop earlier in the day for causing a disturbance.

The police report states that Reza was known to police and frequented the library during the day. When questioned by police at the library, the report states Reza had Super Glue with him at the time and had changed his alibi numerous times.
