SHOOTING AT COSTA PARK
Revere Police detectives are chasing down leads after a man was robbed and shot near Costa Park early Tuesday morning.
Officers arrived on the scene around 3 a.m. and found a man suffering from a laceration to his left eyebrow and a gunshot wound to his left buttocks.
The victim was lying on his stomach and told police that two men had taken his wallet.
He was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries and police noted that he was not very cooperative in providing a description of the two men.
SCOOT OUTTA HERE
A Malden Street man has been charged with motor vehicle infractions after fleeing from police on a scooter going the wrong way on busy Lynn Marsh Road.
Around 7 p.m. last Monday, July 2nd, police on routine patrol encountered about 10 scooters popping wheelies and driving erratically on Malden Street. Officers gave chase and the group split up.
One of the scooters headed down Patriots Parkway and Squire Road and then headed north in the southbound land of Lynn Marsh Road.
Officers took the proper lane and chased the man towards Lynn.
Traffic came to a stop in the southbound land of the highway, and finally an oncoming motorist stopped and blocked the breakdown lane and the path of the wrong-way scooter. The operator tried to evade the Good Samaritan, but hit a police car and fell to the ground.
Nerkis Moreno, 34, of 140 Malden St., was charged failure to stop for police and reckless operation of a motor vehicle.
CLEVER VICTIM CATCHES CROOK
One elderly Broadway woman had a sneaking suspicion that her son’s friend wasn’t being a very good houseguest.
In fact, she had a hunch that he might be stealing from her.
So, the next time that her son’s friend was to come over, she planted $450 cash in her jewelry box and left it in a very conspicuous place.
When her son’s friend came over, during the visit, her hunch was confirmed and he had allegedly stole the cash from her. She confronted the youth, and the situation became violent.
The juvenile assaulted the woman, pushing her to the ground, and then fled.
Last Sunday, police found the youth in Hill Park and put him under arrest.
The 16-year-old youth was charged with larceny over $250 from a person over 60, assault and battery with injury to a person over 60, larceny from a building, attempting to commit a crime and two counts of intimidating a witness.
The fireworks complaints to police over the July 4th week and weekend were nearly at an all-time high, it seemed.
There were complaints from all quarters of the City, but especially in the Shirley Avenue and Patriots Parkway section.
“Patriots Parkway is like a war zone,” Tweeted one reader on the Journal’s Twitter page. “So much for no fireworks laws in Massachusetts. Where’s the RPD?”
Police were apparently running from one place to another to try and squelch the complaint, but there were too many to deal with, it seemed.
Fire Chief Gene Doherty reminded everyone before the holiday that firefighters would confiscate fireworks from anyone they witnessed shooting them off.
SHE’LL PAY FOR THAT ONE
Federal officials arrested a Revere woman on Tuesday, July 3rd, for an incident in March whereby she allegedly made a phony bomb threat for a JetBlue flight at Logan Airport. Nicole Anna Miller, 23, was charged with falsely reporting in March that there were explosives on the flight, which had already taken off from the airport.
One Melrose man has been arrested and charged with several felonies in relation to an alleged assault and larceny from his mother, who lives on Constitution Avenue in Revere Housing Authority property.
Family members contacted police on Monday, July 2nd, with concerns about their brother who was living with their mother without authorization. The mother was blind and needed constant medical care, and relatives were worried about her well being.
Police checked out the scene and found that the man had allegedly assaulted the mother and had also stolen from her as well.
Michael Thorner, 45, of Melrose, was charged with two counts of assault and battery with injury on an elderly person, larceny from a person over 60, and threats.
POLICE WITNESS ATTACK
A Chelsea man was arrested last Saturday night in Costa Park when he brazenly assaulted his girlfriend in front of police officers in the wake of a gang-related fight.
Police were called to the Park – where there’s been an uptick in gang activity lately – around 8 p.m. for a report of fight. As they were performing a standard warrant check on the man, his girlfriend approached him and asked for his car keys. That erupted into an argument and the man flew out of control, allegedly being combative and assaulting police officers. Damien Hutchinson, 29, of Chelsea, was charged with resisting arrest, assault, disorderly conduct, two counts of assault and battery on a police officer and three counts of intimidating a witness.
