Sept. 22, South Main Street, 10:30 p.m.

Hanover Police was called to mediate a dispute between two women outside the Dunkin Donuts adjoined to Foodstop. A woman was leaving Dunkin Donuts after work when she heard people yelling from a van calling her "fat." The angered woman made a comment to one of the van's passengers, prompting one of them to get out of the van to confront her. At this point, the Dunkin Donuts employee removed the lid of her coffee, preparing to throw the coffee in case the other woman assaulted her. Instead, the woman kicked the front of the car of the Dunkin Donuts employee, breaking off a piece of plastic on the license plate. Once Hanover Police arrived, the two women decided they did not want to bring criminal charges against each other.
