Wenham police were one of the several out of town departments that helped during the arrest of a suspect in a domestic assault Sunday morning that closed of a portion of Topsfield's downtown.
The first call came from a Washington Street home at 2:46 a.m., according to a report by Fox 25 and a press release from the Topsfield Police Department.
Washington Street in Topsfield was closed at about 7:45 a.m. on Sunday and reopened at about 9:30 a.m. One commenter on the Topsfield police website said that incident also caused her church service to be cancelled on Sunday morning.
It ended with the arrest of Daniel P. Morley, 27, of Topsfield who charged with two counts of domestic assault and battery, threatening to commit arson and communicating a bomb scare.
Several out-of-town officers assisted Topsfield police, in addition to Wenham officers. The State Police were also called, including the bomb squad. Topsfield police said in Morley's bedroom they found a loaded bolt action rifle, handgun, ammunition and numerous knives, plus a suspicious item that was checked by the bomb squad and "determined not to be an explosive device."
