A Haverhill man has been arrested on criminal harassment and trespassing charges amid allegations that he caused disturbances at Sacred Hearts School.

Kevin Lavallee, 56, of 1 Water St., was arrested Tuesday at 31 South Chestnut St. shortly after 8 a.m.

Tuesday’s arrest was the result of a warrant issued for Lavallee’s failure to appear in Haverhill District Court last week on related charges.

Police say Lavallee has caused several disturbances at the school over the last few weeks, including approaching students—ranging from kindergartners to eighth-graders—near the playground and berating faculty members.
