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

Aug. 3, 1:22 p.m. – An officer was dispatched to the area of Moore Road and Byrne Avenue for reports of a woman screaming for help.

The parent of the child apologized for the concern.

Aug. 8, 11:38 a.m. – A man leaving a York Avenue residence was stopped by an officer after reports of a disturbance.

The man said that he and his girlfriend had an argument, but declined to give more details.

Then the officer talked to an older man on the scene who said that he had just returned from the hospital and could not relax due to the arguing, necessitating the call to the police.

The older man asked the couple to stop, but they would not, and then asked the man to leave and not return for several days.

At this point, the officer found the younger man and advised him not to return until further notice, and the younger man complied with this request.

Aug. 8, 4:51 p.m. – Reports of a traffic complaint came in from the corner of Carlisle Road and Route 110, with a nearby officer spotting a vehicle matching the description from the complaint pulling into Five Guys.

The officer found the vehicle, but had to leave for an emergency call. Upon returning to the area, the vehicle was leaving the area and made an illegal left turn onto Boston Road.

Although the driver told the officer that he had been drinking, the driver passed a sobriety test, earning only a citation from the stop.
