MOUNTAINSIDE, NJ - The information provided herein may not represent the total scope of police activity. Anyone charged as a result of a police investigation is merely an accusation, and the defendant is presumed innocent unless proven guilty. 

On August 28, 2017 at Approx 11:01 a.m. a resident of Ackerman Ave reported an attempted burglary to her residence when she noticed a broken pane of glass on her rear storm door upon returning from a brief vacation away from the home.

On August 29, 2017 at 10:00 p.m. a group of juveniles were making noise in the street on Pheasant Hill Way as they were leaving a large house party. Police responded and found one juvenile in possession of brass knuckles. Additional units assisted with investigating the party and noise which it produced.

On September 2, 2017 in the early morning hours at 1:05 a.m. police were called to the intersection of Summit Road near Iris Drive for a report of a woman screaming and entering a van which did not belong to her. Upon arrival police found an intoxicated female on the ground seated next to the vehicle without any clothing on from the waist down. The female had attended a party at a house on Diven Street in Springfield and was being driven home by her boyfriend when they became involved in an argument which caused the driver to stop the vehicle. The female exited the vehicle and entered the yard of a home on Summit Road where she entered the van and at some point removed her clothing. The female was arrested by police and charged with disorderly conduct and lewdness and released on a summons.
