Ellsworth Police Log Week of July 19



ELLSWORTH — A Hancock Street resident called police on July 12 to report that a shirtless bald man had poked his head into her kitchen window around 8 p.m. and said he was “running from cops,” according to a police report of the incident.

Officers failed to locate the man, Police Chief Glenn Moshier said.

“We weren’t, in fact, chasing anybody,” Moshier said. The woman supplied police with photographs she took of the man, but “they were of the back of a shirtless man’s head,” said Moshier, and officers were unable to identify a suspect.

The next day, the same woman reported that she heard someone enter her home, but never saw anyone. The woman threatened to shoot, according to a report, and the prowler left. Officers searched the area but failed to locate anyone suspicious.

Mother bites child

On July 12, police received a report from the District Attorney’s Office that a 6-year-old boy had allegedly been bitten on the cheek by his mother, who is a local resident.

The woman reportedly denied the incident when she was first interviewed by police, but later admitted to having bitten him, Moshier said.

The woman told police she was “angry at the child for getting in trouble at day camp,” Moshier said.

The incident was first reported to the Department of Health and Human Services by the boy’s grandmother.

The boy is not currently with his mother, said Moshier, but is staying with a family friend in Machiasport.

Police have not received any previous reports of abuse from the home, Moshier said. The information was forwarded to the District Attorney’s Office for possible criminal charges.

No charges in gun threatening incident

Police are investigating an incident that occurred on July 12 in which a local resident allegedly threatened another resident with a gun.

According to a police report, the man who was threatened was visiting a friend’s apartment and went downstairs to smoke when one of the occupants of the downstairs apartment told him to leave, complaining that he was slamming the door.

The occupant of the downstairs apartment disappeared inside and came out with a black handgun, according to police, and threatened the other man with it. The man being threatened left and reported the incident to police.

Officers responded and searched the resident but were unable to locate a gun. No charges were filed.

Young boy in hot car not in danger

A concerned citizen reported a young boy left in a hot car while his father was at the track on July 13, according to a police report of the incident. Officers contacted the 11-year-old-boy, who “had the ability to remove himself from the vehicle at any time,” according to a report.

Thefts and other losses

A young boy reported that a man with a white beard driving a black car took $10 out of his hand near a residence on Edgewood Way on July 15.
