WAKEFIELD — Over the weekend, police responded to calls about an out-of-control patron at Caffe Italia, 21 Water St., a woman from Belmont who allegedly engaged in sexual conduct for a fee at an Albion Street spa and a report about luggage stolen from in front of a home on Reynolds Road.

An unruly patron at Caffe Italia, 21 Water St., resulted in his arrest Saturday night at about 9:15 p.m.

Police were notified that a patron having dinner at the restaurant allegedly flipped over tables and acted in an aggressive manner toward another patron seated nearby.

On their arrival, police located Daniel G. Beaver, 24, 8 Grey Ln., Lynnfield who had been hiding behind vehicles in an effort to flee the area. In their pursuit of Beaver, police finally found him in a dark alley off Water Street.

During questioning, police determined that Beaver was under the influence of alcohol.

He was taken into protective custody and arrested on a charge of disorderly conduct.

His arraignment will be held Tuesday in Malden District Court.

Responding officers were Christopher Whalen and Joseph Lyons.


A Fairview Avenue resident called police Sunday just after 1 p.m. to report that two pieces of her luggage had been stolen outside her home.

The victim told Patrol Officer Thomas Flynn that her flight from Logan Airport had been canceled, and when she returned to Wakefield by taxi, she left two of about five pieces of luggage curbside while she took the other luggage inside her home.

When she went to retrieve the remaining pieces, they were gone along with the taxi.

Each piece of luggage was valued at about $200 and contained clothing, shoes, makeup and toys.

Police are looking into the matter.


Police said they arrested Qinghua Teng, 53, 88 Lewis Rd., Belmont on a charge of sexual conduct for a fee ($40) after a sting operation was set up at a spa on Albion Street. The Item this morning could not match the address with the name of the establishment given by police, so the address will not be published.

Det. John Ryan made the arrest at about 1:30 p.m. Friday.

Teng is scheduled for arraignment in Malden District Court on Tuesday.
