- A man wanted for a disturbing case of domestic violence in Chatham surrendered at Orleans District Court Friday.  Police responded to a North Chatham residence late Wednesday night and discovered the female victim on the floor. The suspect fled and attempts to track him with a dog were unsuccesful. The woman told police she had been beaten unconscious and, as she came to, he was injecting her with heroin. 28-year-old Jeffrey Alten was arraigned on charges of assault and battery, and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (hypodermic needle) and pled not guilty.

MMA cadet saves boater in Sandwich
SANDWICH
- A Mass Maritime Cadet is credited with saving the life of a boater in Sandwich. 21-year-old Brian Taylor also works part time at the Sandwich Marina. The Times reports Taylor spotted a luxury yacht adrift Tuesday and sprang into action. After getting underway and approaching the boat he saw the victim entanged in a rope along side the vessel, his head barely above water. Taylor was able to cut the rope and free Jack Erbes who was rushed to Jordan Hospital in Plymouth. It is believed Erbes was jumping from the dock onto the boat with the line in hand when it got pulled into the engine, hurling Erbes to the concrete and then into the water.
