David A. Torres, 42, of 567 Robeson St., Fall River, was charged with failing to register himself as a sexual offender and obstructing an officer in the execution of duty. Police said Mr. Torres, a Level I offender, came to the police headquarters on July 22 to register his sex offender status. On July 24, Portsmouth police responded to 24 Morgan St. — which Mr. Torres had reported as his address — in reference to a possible child abduction. (An Amber Alert had been issued that day for a 13-year-old Portsmouth girl seen leaving her home with a man not known to her family.) A woman residing at the address, however, told police that Mr. Torres did not live there. At 1 p.m. later that day, Mr. Torres came back to the police station after learning that officers were looking for him. He told detectives that the woman had lied to them because she was nervous. The next day police returned to 24 Morgan St. and the woman once again told them Mr. Torres did not reside there. She said she had never met Mr. Torres, but that several weeks prior his girlfriend had asked her if he could use her address. The request was refused, the woman told police.

A 17-year-old Barrington girl was charged with simple assault and obstructing an office in execution of duty after police were dispatched to a Peleg Road home for a report of a disturbance around 3 a.m. While responding to the home, police stopped a vehicle on East Main Road that was believed to have been involved in the incident. Another office continued to the home and met with the victim, a 19-year-old woman who said that throughout the night, she had been receiving phone calls from her ex-boyfriend’s new girlfriend — the 17-year-old ultimately charged — who threatened her physically. Later on, she said, the 17-year-old arrived at the home with her boyfriend and two other friends and when the 19-year-old came outside, the other girl ran at her, throwing fists and pulling her hair, police said. Police said when they arrested the 17-year-old, she provided them with her sister’s name instead of her own.
