Town police received a report from Southampton Hospital in the early hours of Nov. 18 that a man had been struck with a belt hard enough to damage his eye to the point that he might lose vision in it.
The man, Carlos Cevarros, told police he and his friends had gone to an address on Lincoln Avenue in Springs to join a Bingo party, but were turned away at the door. Guillermo T. Pillco allegedly pulled off his belt and struck Mr. Cevarros with it after exchanging words about a woman in Mr. Cevarros’s party.
Police located Mr. Pillco and arrested him on Saturday morning on a charge of second-degree felony assault, which is leveled in a case where the accused intends to inflict severe injury using a weapon. Bail was set Sunday morning at $10,000, which Mr. Pillco posted.
Tatiana Martin, 38, of East Hampton was charged on Nov. 21 with grand larceny and possession of a stolen item valued over $1,000, both felonies. According to the report, Ms. Martin removed a MacBook Pro laptop from a vehicle parked outside a doctor’s office at 518 Montauk Highway in Amagansett on Nov. 18.
A surveillance camera belonging to a neighboring business “had a major role in the arrest,” Lt. Chris Anderson of the town police said yesterday. Ms. Martin was released last Thursday morning on $500 bail.
On Friday, responding to a complaint from an Ocean Parkway woman, police arrested her husband on charges of endangering the welfare of a minor, a misdemeanor, and harassment, a violation. The couple had been arguing when the wife, who was late for work, walked out without saying goodbye, which apparently angered Jorge A. Lopez, 26. He then took an undisclosed action — the report was heavily redacted — which frightened both the child and the wife, who ran to her car and called the police. Before she could give the operator her address, however, Mr. Lopez reportedly grabbed the phone away from her.
At 7 p.m. that day, after hearing the woman’s complaint, police placed him under arrest. Later, police photographed her injuries at headquarters and contacted Child Protection Services.
Mr. Lopez was released the next morning without bail, but with a future date in court. Justice Lisa Rana granted his wife an order of protection, prohibiting him from making contact with her or their child.
