Ellsworth Police Log Week of May 9



ELLSWORTH — On May 3, officers investigated a case involving three siblings who were reportedly abused by their mother.

The children were interviewed and “abuse was disclosed” by one of the children, according to a police report, but the incident had taken place outside the state.

Police referred the case to the agency with jurisdiction in the matter.

Suicidal statements

Officers brought a local woman to the emergency room on May 2 after she reportedly made “suicidal statements,” according to a police report.

The next day, officers were called to Northern Light Maine Coast Hospital for a report of a man who was suicidal and trying to leave, according to a police report of the incident. Police stood by until the man calmed down.

Helping hand

Police helped a man out from under his three-wheeler on May 6. He was uninjured.

Domestic disturbances, online harassment, suspicious activity

On May 4, a local resident reported being harassed via Facebook.

Officers determined there were “no direct threats made” but that a man was “voicing his opinion about the complainant.”

Police advised the resident to report the issue to Facebook and speak with an attorney regarding a potential defamation of character lawsuit.

That same day, police responded to North Street for a report of a man “holding a [woman] by her arms and yelling at her,” but failed to locate the pair.
