Couple charged in alleged assault on Salisbury Beach lifeguard

A Massachusetts couple was charged Monday after an alleged assault on a 20-year-old Salisbury Beach lifeguard, with the male suspect allegedly ordering the lifeguard to cease blowing his whistle as it was exacerbating his hangover.

Shawn C. Duncan, 42, of Lawrence was charged with two counts of witness intimidation, according to documents from Newburyport District Court. His girlfriend, Erin Mulcahy, 24, of North Andover was charged with assault and battery of a public employee, disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest, the documents said.
