Assault and Battery with a Dangerous Weapon – Other

04/11/12 – At about 1:39 p.m., officers made an on-site arrest of an individual for assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon to wit shod foot at Newbury and Dartmouth streets.

Officers were on patrol in an unmarked car on Boylston Street when another officer broadcast over Channel Five that he was engaged in a foot chase with a male suspect at Boylston and Dartmouth streets. Responding officers observed the suspect running towards Newbury Street with the reporting officer in pursuit. The suspect then ran between two vehicles in an attempt to elude police.

The suspect stopped running and began walking towards one of the responding officer. The suspect ignored the officer’s verbal requests to stop and put his hands up and continued to walk towards him.

The officer forcefully put the suspect to the ground, at which time additional police came to his assistance. The suspect struggled briefly before officers handcuffed him, and he continued to resist physically as police forced him into the back of a marked cruiser.

The reporting officer said he was on detail on Boston Street when witnesses approached him and reported that the suspect had just assaulted a male victim.

After the suspect was placed into custody, the victim made contact with police and told them that he and his wife were walking in the crosswalk on Boylston Street when the suspect shoved him. The victim turned to face the suspect, who then kicked him in the area of the ribs and arms and caused the victim to drop his briefcase.

The suspect began yelling obscenities at the victim and his wife, but fled upon being confronted by the detail officer.

The suspect was transported to Area A-4 headquarters and charged with assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon to wit shod foot, as well as resisting arrest.
