WOONSOCKET â€“ Three men got caught breaking into a house Tuesday after they mistakenly believed no one was home after ringing the doorbell.
The downstairs tenant of the two-family at 387 Park Place was indeed home, however; he simply didnâ€™t answer the doorbell because he didnâ€™t recognize the individual ringing it, he told police.
Moments later, the tenant saw two men scaling the balcony to the second story of the home and he heard their footsteps after they allegedly forced their way in through a window.
WOONSOCKET â€“ Anita Wilbur had no idea why sheâ€™d been summoned to Harris Hall, but when she found out it nearly brought a tear to her eye.
As Wilbur watched, city officials unveiled the 2012 installment of the municipal Christmas ornament, a glass sphere featuring an image of the Place Jolicoeur World War I monument.
The Cumberland Street monument, whose prominent Christian cross was attacked as unconstitutional by a Wisconsin atheist group earlier this year, was named for Jolicoeurâ€™s uncle over 90 years ago.

PROVIDENCE - The game changed on an alley-oop.
Rhode Island freshman Jordan Hare rose above the Providence College defense to emphatically finish a perfectly executed play with 15 minutes, 22 seconds left in the second half to cut the Friars' lead to five.
