Gloucester Police/Fire: Condoms, comment place Rockport man in cuffs

Gloucester Police/Fire

A Rockport man has been charged with disorderly conduct, accused of drinking alcohol in a Main Street store.

David Williams, 75, allegedly visited Dress Code and showed an employee condoms and lubricant he had just bought, before telling the woman he was “looking for little boys.”

Williams had allegedly been drinking small bottles of alcohol within the store, too. He left the store when the employee told him to, and police found him outside.

He was arrested Friday about 1:43 p.m.

In other news taken from the logs of the Police and Fire departments:

A Prospect Street man faces a charge of drunken driving after being arrested Tuesday.

Police noticed a vehicle drifting in the roadway on Route 128 northbound at a fluctuating speed.

Luiz Claudio DaSilva, 27, of Prospect Street, was stopped on Washington Street by an officer, who arrested him at 1:43 a.m. after DaSilva failed four field sobriety tests; his blood alcohol level tested at 0.124.

A man who threw a can at another man who was photographing the double rainbow Monday about 8 p.m., has been charged with assault.

Brandon D. Barry, 18, of Cleveland Street, allegedly threw a can at the face of the man taking photos, then kicked him when that man approached the vehicle. Barry was the passenger in a vehicle that came up behind the man taking photos, whose car was parked on Nautilus Road. Barry and the others in the vehicle yelled at the man to get out of the roadway and cursed at him before Barry allegedly threw the can.

Police initially heard about the incident when the victim called police to notify them he was following the vehicle of the man who had assaulted him. Then, a passenger in the same vehicle as Barry called to report that another man was following them and wanting to kill them.
