SK Man Charged With Trying to Break Into Ex's Apartment 

James E. Hamar, 38, of 80 Samuel Rodman St., Apt. 217, in South Kingstown, was arrested Sept. 1 at 12:15 a.m. on charges of domestic disorderly conduct, possession of prohibited weapon and a felony charge of domestic breaking and entering.

Police arrived at Union Drive for a report that Hamar was holding a knife and attempting to break into his ex-girfriend's apartment. Hammar allegedly refused to follow officers’ orders to put his hands in the air and lie on the ground — forcing officers to place him on the ground. According to reports, police found a 4-¼” folding knife in Hammar’s pocket. 

According to Hammar’s ex-girlfriend, he had contacted her via phone and text message 17 times in less than 45 minutes before arriving at the apartment complex and banging and kicking on her door. Through the peep hole, the woman allegedly saw Hammar try to knock the door open by running into it with his shoulder, and heard him try to unlock the door with his pocket knife.

Pair Arrested After Crashing Block Party 

Walter A. Pearson, 53, of 87 Colvintown Road in Coventry, was arrested Sept. 3 at 12:50 a.m. on charges of disorderly conduct and vandalism while Cathy R. Hawes, 50, of 599 West Shore Road in Warwick, was charged with disorderly conduct, simple assault and willful trespass after the two allegedly crashed a block party.

According to the homeowner, Hawes arrived at his party uninvited and began swearing and threatening him and his wife — reportedly in front of numerous children who were attending the party. Hawes was escorted off the property but allegedly returned hours later with Pearson and several others, and sat by the fire as the man was cleaning up.

The man told police that he used hose to put out the fire, enraging Hawes, who then allegedly struck him with a plastic chair. When Hawes tried to strike him again, he reportedly turned the hose on her.

During the altercation, Hawes allegedly tore the man’s shirt and entered his home uninvited. At one point, Pearson allegedly broke the man’s mailbox. According to officers, Hawes and Pearson appeared to be heavily under the influence at the time.
