Salem, N.H. police arrested two Peabody residents Friday and had to intervene in a variety of other incidents in the early morning hours before the new Apple iPhones went on sale at the Mall at Rockingham Park.
Mark Young was charged with trespassing and disorderly conduct, while Jennifer Young was charged with trespassing and possession of marijuana, according to Patten, who said both individuals were released on $1,000 personal recognizance bail.
Officers also found a man who was beaten unconscious, and Patten said detectives are still investigating that incident. Patten said the man was found "laying in some brush," although he said in a release that none of the roughly 1,000 people in the area "'witnessed' the assault."
The man was transported to an area hospital by members of the Salem N.H. Fire Department.
Patten said there were several other minor incidents over the course of Friday morning, including multiple thefts, domestic disputes and trespassing issues. Officers handled those issues "without incident," according to Patten.
