    Marblehead police investigating ‘unnerving’ crimes

    For some reason, someone is targeting a Marblehead home — and police in the historic North Shore town want to find out who it is.

    The department posted home surveillance video of the second incident on Aug. 2 when a man stops outside the home, appears to grab a brick from the sidewalk and then heaves it toward the second floor — before running away.

    Police wrote that the same home was attacked on July 30. They did not provide a specific address but said the home is in the area of Green, Mugford, and Elm steets.


    “These are felony crimes because of the damage to property, but even more, they are unnerving to the residents, especially when it wakes them from a sound sleep,’’ police wrote.

    The first incident took place around 2:45 a.m., and the July 30 incident occurred around midnight, police wrote.

    “If you were out and about on those dates and times and saw/heard anything that can help, please contact Marblehead Police Detectives at 781-631-1212,” police wrote.
