Tewksbury Police Headquarters.

A pedestrian was struck by a vehicle while crossing the street in front of the Jade East Restaurant Thursday evening.
The accident took place around 9:30 p.m. The victim was taken by ambulance to Lowell General Hospital Saints Campus for treatment of significant but non-life-threatening injuries.
No charges were filed immediately against the driver of the vehicle.

Live bats, dead bats ... just a lot of bats
A Livingston Street woman called police on Wednesday to report that she had a bats' next in her home, complete with a large number of bats. She said some had aggressively come at her and her grandson.
She said she'd had the home exterminated a few days earlier and she woke Sunday up to find one in bed with her. Now, she says, she has at least one dead outside and one dead inside the house.
Animal control was called and a message was left. Lou Ann Clement called back and took the resident's contact information.
The bats need to be brought to Boston for disease testing.
