Few details have been released after police in Rockland had to deal with an apparently suicidal, emotionally depressed person at Reeds Pond last night around 8:00.
The State Police Explosive Investigative and Underwater Recovery units went to the pond, which is near Market Street, around 8 p.m.
A witness said he saw a man drop two bags into the water saying, “I’m sorry, I’m sorry”. The man then swam across the pond where he was confronted by Rockland police.
The man is identified as 26 year-old Ariz Nasar Saleem. He was taken to a hospital for psychological evaluation.
Police say he was wearing just underwear and seemed visibly distraught.
The two bags were located just before 10:30 p.m.
Police say the bags just contained clothing and other personal items.
