NSPD makes 10 domestic violence arrests in one month


NORTH SMITHFIELD – Police logs show that in a one month period from mid-October through mid-November, members of the North Smithfield Police Department arrested nine individuals on domestic violence charges, including one Woonsocket man who was arrested twice.

Joseph Auclair, 40, of 393 Bernon St. Apt. 302, Woonsocket was charged with domestic violence/criminal violation of a no contact order on Monday, Oct. 23, and arrested again on Sunday, Nov. 5, for violation of a no contact order, along with domestic assault, vandalism, disorderly conduct and obstructing an officer.

According to his arrest reports, Auclair already had a no contact order with the victim when police were called to an incident on Great Road in October. When they returned to the same address and arrested Auclair in November, police say he became increasingly uncooperative during the booking process, refusing to answer questions or look at the camera during his mug shot.

Auclair, who was released on a $2,500 surety bon and referred to a public defender, was among several involved in domestic incidents over the course of a period between Monday, Oct. 16 and Thursday, Nov. 15, according to police records.

Four of the suspects gave North Smithfield addresses.

Prince Tarlue, 37, of 11 Dorr Drive, Apt. 1 in North Smithfield was charged with domestic violence/first degree sexual assault on Friday, Oct. 20.

On Tuesday, Oct. 24, police arrested Robert Cullerton, 77, of 72 Greenville Road, North Smithfield on domestic charges of simple assault and disorderly conduct.

On Monday, Oct. 30, Akil Tredhak, 25 was arrested on a warrant for domestic violence, felony assault and disorderly conduct.
