Man Changes Phone Number Three Times, Still Gets Alleged Harrassment From Ex-Wife

The following information was provided by the Westford Police Department. Anyone arrested is assume innocent unless proven guilty by a court of law.

June 26, 9:58 p.m. – A frustrated man called police from the Westford Regency, citing what he viewed as telephone harassment from an ex-lover.

The man told the officer that he and the woman calling him met last August and married last November. However, the couple separated in December and he has been paying $100 a week to the woman for a baby the ex-wife says is the son of the ex-husband.

Although the man cannot afford a DNA test to confirm the son’s lineage, he still wants to pay the money, however he says the woman will not stop calling him for reasons not explained in the report.

Apparently, the man has gone through three cell phone numbers since December and is harassed while working at the Regency.

The officer advised the man that if he wished the woman to cease contact with him that he apply for a restraining order, which would go through the Lowell District Court, as he lives in Lowell.

June 24, 3:39 p.m. – A dog was reportedly left in the back of a car without slightly opened windows at 133 Littleton Rd.

An officer was dispatched to find the dog in question resting comfortably in the back seat of the car, with the window rolled down approximately 2-3 inches.

June 28, 11:16 p.m. – Three officers were dispatched to Broadway Street in Graniteville after reports of a disturbance.

The man who called the police said he and a friend had gotten into a verbal disagreement after a few drinks, but the friend would not leave. There was no physical altercation.

The friend in turn said he could not leave, as he had no form of transportation and knew no one that would pick him up.

Police gave the friend a ride home.
