FALLEN POLE CAUSES HAVOC
A three-car accident around mid-day on Monday sent a electric pole to the ground and caused a two-hour backup for traffic on both sides of Lee Burbank Highway.
A southbound pickup struck another vehicle around 12:48 p.m. on Monday, and careened into another car. They went into a pole that carried power lines.
That sent the pole down onto one of the vehicles. It also sent the pole and the power lines down onto the roadway – blocking both the northbound and southbound lanes.
There were no injuries and no one was sent to the hospital. However, traffic was tied up on the highway for more than two hours.
FBI IN THE PINES
Revere Police have confirmed that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) was in Revere last Wednesday, July 10th, in the evening conducting an investigation at a home on Rice Avenue.
A call to FBI officials for more information was not immediately returned.
However, locals on the scene said they were told that the investigation involved a large sum of cash that was under review in the western United States. That was about it for the details.
A popular local real estate developer was arrested after he attacked family members and employees trying to remove him from the Squire Lounge early Sunday morning.
Police said an off-duty State Trooper – who was related to the suspect as a brother-in-law – attempted to go to the Lounge and remove the suspect, Robert Marley, 54, of Lynnfield, around 12:05 a.m. Sunday.
The family member Trooper was concerned about his ability to operate a motor vehicle. However, it erupted into an argument.
As the brother-in-law escorted Marley out, he allegedly dropped a BB gun in his possession, swung a knife at two doormen employed by the Squire and then picked up the replica BB gun and put it to the head of a Winthrop man standing outside.
Police were able to locate the weapon in the back bed of the Trooper brother-in-law’s truck. The knife was allegedly found in Marley’s pocket.
No one was seriously injured.
Marley was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, disorderly conduct, violation of the knife ordinance, and two counts of assault with a dangerous weapon.
HAMMER ATTACK ON B-WAY
A purported gang member went on a hammer attack frenzy early Saturday morning on Broadway.
Around 1:30 a.m., officers reported to the Domino’s Pizza where an employee told police that three men had picked a fight with him and one brandished a hammer.
As police were taking the report, another man walked by and told officers that three young men had tried to beat him up with a hammer in front of D&L Liquors.
The suspect had allegedly come up to the man and said, “Who you with” – meaning which gang are you affiliated with.
The suspect was identified and was highly intoxicated.
Ariel Velasquez, 20, of 52 Abruzzi St., was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon, disorderly conduct and receiving stolen property under $250.
SOMETHING HAPPENED, BUT WHAT?
Revere Police are trying to sort out a possible armed robbery at a Broadway apartment last Wednesday, July 10th.
Officers responded around 9:19 p.m. and found a man on a bicycle with no shirt on who was bleeding from a head wound.
A second party was also on scene and shaken up a bit.
Officers went to the apartment at 510 Broadway. They were told that the three victims were in the apartment and three males barged into the apartment with a firearm drawn.
They told all three men to get face down on the ground, hitting one of the victims in the head with the firearm.
They allegedly stole wallets, phones and car keys.
Police said the stories amongst the three were not consistent, so they are trying to figure out what’s going on.
“We obviously believe something happened there, but we’re not sure yet just what that is,” said Lt. Amy O’Hara.
The three robbers were described as being a short, white male with freckles, a tall black male and an Asian male with a baseball cap.
