Man arrested twice in city within hours

November 20, 2012

WOONSOCKET — A city man was arrested twice in a matter of hours this weekend, once for assaulting his girlfriend and a second time for violating an order to stay away from her.
The copy of the no-contact order was still in the pocket of 55-year-old Michael J. Lafferty of 133 Providence St. following his second arrest Sunday morning, shortly after being released from the police lockup.
Police said the bizarre drama began about 7:30 p.m. Saturday, when Lafferty pushed his girlfriend into a wall at home during what was described as an unprovoked outburst of violence.

Library vandalized

November 20, 2012

WOONSOCKET — Harris Public Library usually uses its Facebook page to publicize positive news, like the arrival of a new computer to help the unemployed find work or a recent party for young followers of the Wimpy Kid diary series.
But Monday morning many friends of the 303 Clinton St. facility were shocked when they saw a photo of the main reading room showing numerous shattered windows, the floor littered with shards of glass. A potted plant that got caught in the line of fire drooped sadly under the weight of the debris.
