A Jefferson man was reportedly pepper-sprayed on his own property after returning to his residence last week.

The man said he arrived at his house on Peach Hill Dr. and “heard someone at his building,” according to the incident report. He asked who was in the building and said a woman who lives at the residence emerged and pepper sprayed him.

The woman was no longer at the home when an officer responded to the scene. The man said the woman had been “acting strangely recently,” according to the report.

Other incidents recently reported to the Jefferson Police Department were:

•information on Washington St. where a man was reportedly causing a disturbance while looking for his wife and children.

•information on Airport Rd. where a business owner reported fraudulent activity related to the purchase of cutting machines. The money sent for the purchase — $121,108 — far exceeded the quoted amount of $9,020. The buyer said the large sum was sent accidentally and requested that the money be sent back to another account. Suspicious of this, the business owner contacted his bank and learned that the money was wired from the account of a Pennsylvania company. The business owner contacted that company, which said the $121,108 had been stolen from their account.
