New Bedford Mayor Calls Cops After Being Threatened

City of New Bedford

Mayor Jon Mitchell did this week what he hopes all residents of the city will do when they encounter a problem in their neighborhood — call the police. 

Speaking on his weekly radio program on WBSM, the Mayor said he was driving home on Ash Street Tuesday night when he encountered a group of young people in the middle of the street.

The crowd eventually started moving,  and the Mayor followed them for a time in his car.

Mitchell says the threats and unruly behavior continued so he called the police.  One of the young people was locked up.

The Mayor, a former federal prosecutor, says when something happens that undermines a neighborhood, residents should call the cops.
