MT. VERNON — A 56-year-old man and a teen-ager were arrested in separate incidents Thursday after allegedly causing disturbances.

Albert P. Banks, no address given to police, was arrested around 10:30 p.m. Thursday on a charge of criminal trespass to land after being told twice to leave the Potomac Boulevard McDonald’s restaurant.

Police were first called to the restaurant at 4:04 p.m. after it was reported a man — later identified as Banks — was causing a disturbance and refusing to leave, according to Capt. Steve Lamar, press spokesman for Mt. Vernon Police Department.

A restaurant employee asked that Banks be removed from the property. Officers told Banks to leave or face arrest.

At 6:03 p.m., an employee of McDonald’s called the police department again to report that Banks had returned and had been asleep in the restaurant’s lobby for about the past two hours, according to MVPD telecommunicator reports.

He was told again to leave by police.

At 6:54 p.m., Banks was reported back again, but left before police arrived.

Lamar said Banks was found later near Applebee’s, where he was arrested. He was taken to the Jefferson County jail, with bond set at $1,000.

At 1:10 p.m. Thursday, city police were asked to respond to the Safe and Alternative School, 2300 Benton Road, to deal with an “aggressive student,” Lamar said.

Police arrested a 14-year-old male on a charge of aggravated battery.

“He had physical contact with the teacher several times and was also threatening to the teacher,” Lamar said.

The teen was released to his parents.
