Man's watch of his neighborhood leads to own arrest

December 11, 2011

WOONSOCKET — A city man's decision to investigate suspicious activity in his neighborhood resulted in him being charged with a gun violation, according to police.

He is now charged with felony assault with a dangerous weapon — a handgun — and possession of a pistol without a license or permit, in connection with the incident, according to police.

Bryant gives PC a scare

December 10, 2011

In the end, the Friars prevailed by a 72-61 count, but it was far from an easy win.

“I was very impressed, very impressed with the girls’ energy,” said first-year coach Jayar Santos, who replaces longtime Warrior mentor Joe Handy.
