Scholarship Established in Memory of Stoughton High Senior David Wade
The Stoughton School Committee unanimously approved the David James Wade Memorial Scholarship at its meeting Feb. 12.
The scholarship will give 10 of his former classmates financial assistance in continuing their education beyond high school. Each of the 10 scholarships will be for $560, symbolic of Wade's football jersey number (56) this season at SHS.
Police are investigating a reported home invasion Tuesday night on Buckminster Drive in Norwood in which a woman was found tied up and injured after being assaulted by two men.
According to police reports, the victim was in the parking lot of her building when she was confronted by two black men. One of them was allegedly holding a firearm.
The victim was forced to open her apartment door and was then tied up and assaulted. The suspects then "ransacked" the apartment and left the victim bound and injured.
William Lozeau, of Norton, was pronounced dead at Sturdy Memorial Hospital Tuesday following an accident on Route 123 in Norton.
The 50-year-old hit a town plow truck head on near St. Mary's Church in Norton. The driver of the plow, Rhode Island resident George Guptill, was travelling in the eastbound lane when Lozeau came from the opposite direction into that lane.
The cause of the collision is under investigation.
Bites from a dog reportedly resulted in more than 400 stitches, surgery, and ongoing treatment for a Mansfield six-year-old.
A lawyer representing Dawn Herbert-Miller, the boy's mother, filed a complaint stemming from the Jan. 3 attack.
The Mansfield Board of Selectmen unanimously voted to have a public hearing regarding the incident. The public hearing will take place on February 27.
In the past, the town has ordered animals deemed dangerous to be euthanized.
