---- — A Magnolia Avenue man is facing charges of domestic assault after police responded to an incident Monday around 6:45 p.m.

Officers, called to address a domestic disturbance, found Reynir Aegisson, who had “obviously been drinking,” according to the police report. And during a dispute with another person inside the Magnolia Street address, police found that Aegisson had thrown a glass vase that hit a refrigerator.

Officers said that Aegisson would not let the person leave the address until a neighbor came into the house; it was at that point that police were called, according to the report.

A Wyoma Road woman contacted police Monday to report some checks that were improperly cashed in late June.

According to police, the woman said the checks were cashed at two different Wal-Mart locations in the southeastern Massachusetts communities of North Dartmouth and Fairhaven, totaling more than $1,700.

The woman, who works for the company, and police were not able to get information from Wal-Mart about whom the checks were made out to. The police report also indicated that Sovereign Bank will be conducting an investigation, and the bank account in which the checks were cashed has been suspended.

A Willowood Road woman reported her daughter’s black bicycle had been stolen overnight.

Monday at 7:23 p.m., a Tewksbury man reported that some electronics were stolen out of his boat while it was docked at Rose’s Marine off Main Street.

The police report, however, also indicates that the Tewksbury man knows a woman from Danvers who co-owns the boat, that she had taken out the electronics, and that the two would resolve the issue on their own.
