Police Log for Sept. 15 – Nov. 1

Editor’s Note: The Chester Telegraph Police Log is a sampling of incidents directly from Chester Police reports. We do not identify individual victims of crimes nor those who have been arrested.

Thursday, Nov. 1

Mattson Road. A resident complained that neighbors were target shooting behind the house scaring the complainant and family.

Wednesday, Oct. 31, 9:39 a.m.

Green Mountain Union High School. Police were informed that an assault had taken place and that the victim was at Springfield Hospital ER with his mother.

The officer spoke with the mother on the phone and she advised that another student had boxed her son’s ears, that both ears were bleeding and both of his eyes were blackening. She also said that this was the third time this year that her son has been assaulted at school.

Upon arriving at the hospital, the mother said that her son’s ears were not bleeding as was previously thought by a school nurse. The officer also noted that the boy’s eyes were not blackening.

One witness said that the victim was tapping his pencil on his desk, annoying some of the other students when a student told the victim that if he didn’t stop, he was going to slap him. The victim responded that he would only stop if he said please stop. The victim was then slapped in both ears, which he later described as a pain of 5 on a scale from 1 to 10.

The officer then told the victim that while it is not OK for someone to slap him, his actions created the environment because he was trying to annoy the other students and they warned him, he could have avoided the situation by stopping the pencil-tapping.

Police then told the victim’s mother that in light of her son’s role in the event, the lack of injuries and the fact that the school was going to deal with the other youth, it was appropriate to let the school handle it. He added that police would proceed with a criminal case if she wished.
