ASSAULT REPORTED AT SUFFOLK
A female employee at Suffolk Downs reported on Sunday morning that she was the victim of a sexual assault in the stables at the track.
Police are in the process of interviewing the woman, but report that she might have known her attacker or attackers.
No charges have been filed yet and the matter remains under investigation.
STATE CHEMIST INJURES PREGNANT WOMAN
A former chemist at the Department of Public Health’s Hinton Laboratory was arraigned last week for allegedly driving drunk and rear-ending another vehicle, injuring its pregnant operator at North Shore Road and Oak Island.
Hevis Lleshi, 31, of Quincy, was formally charged in Chelsea District Court with operating under the influence for the incident in Revere. Assistant District Attorney Christopher Henry recommended $5,000 bail and orders that she remain free of drugs and alcohol, submit to random testing, and not drive while the case is pending; Judge Benjamin Barnes released her on her own recognizance with prosecutors’ recommended conditions of release.
Revere Police responded to the area of North Shore Road and Oak Island Street at about 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 16, for a report of a motor vehicle collision. On arrival, they found a 37-year-old Marblehead woman who was four months pregnant and suffering from non-fatal injuries. That woman was transported to Whidden Memorial Hospital, where she was treated and released; specialists from Massachusetts General Hospital are monitoring her pregnancy.
Lleshi was still behind the wheel of her Audi when police arrived and told officers that she didn’t know what happened. She allegedly slurred her speech and smelled of alcohol, so officers asked if she had consumed any alcoholic beverages that day.
“About three,” she allegedly said.
During a series of field sobriety tests, Lleshi allegedly could not keep her balance while walking a straight line. She allegedly said she knew the alphabet, having graduated from Boston University, but she did not actually recite it.
At the station, she agreed to take a Breathalyzer test and allegedly blew a .24 – three times the legal limit for driving.
Lleshi, who once worked for DPH testing evidence suspected of being illegal narcotics, allegedly told booking officers that she had been at Suffolk Superior Court prior to consuming alcohol at a nearby bar. Suffolk prosecutors were unable to find any criminal proceeding in which she had been called to testify.
PUTTING OUT THE FIRES
A belligerent Sagamore Street woman allegedly took out a firefighter, police officers and hospital personnel on her way to the tank last Tuesday evening, Oct. 15.
Police reported to the scene around 11:50 p.m. and found the woman allegedly intoxicated and yelling obscenities and assaulting a male party standing with her.
A Revere Firefighter intervened and the woman tried to run from the firefighter, scratching and punching the firefighter – enough so to draw blood.
As the woman ambled down the street, police and fire gave chase. It eventually took one officer and three firefighters to take her down and handcuff her.
At the station, she was combative and problematic and had to be transported to Whidden Hospital – where she was also absolutely out of control.
Luana Dumont, 36, of 4 Sagamore St., was charged with assault and battery, assault and battery on a public employee, resisting arrest and disturbing the peace.
A man reported to police last Weds., Oct. 16, that his long-time girlfriend had assaulted him and wouldn’t take no for an answer when she begged him back.
The man reported that around 5 a.m. the woman was whipped into a jealous frenzy when the man’s former girlfriend became the topic of conversation.
The woman slapped the man numerous times in the face and then fled in a rage.
Then, around 10 a.m., she returned.
She swore her love to him.
She begged for a return to the way things were.
The man told her to leave, but she was having trouble staying away.
By 2 p.m., the man went to the police.
The matter is under investigation.
LIGHTBODY RELEASED ON RECOGNIZANCE
Charlie Lightbody, 53, of North Revere, was arraigned in Chelsea District Court last week and released on his own personal recognizance, with orders not to contact the victim in the case – Louis Ciarlone of Revere.
Lightbody allegedly struck Ciarlone, 61, in the face during a casino-related rally on Broadway on the morning of Oct. 12. There are allegations by Lightbody that Ciarlone also assaulted him.
The next court date will be Nov. 17.
ASSAULTED AT ELIOT
A young woman reported to police that she was assaulted by a group of girls who drove by her last Wednesday evening, Oct. 16.
Police found the woman crouching down on the sidewalk at North Shore Road and Eliot Road when they arrived around 10:24 p.m. She told them that a car with three woman drove by and threw bottles at her. They stopped and got out and punched and kicked her until she went to the ground.
Then they fled.
Police have definite leads on the identity of at least one of the attackers and believe her to be gang-related.
MOB ASSOCIATES GET PRISON TIME
Two associates of alleged mob captain Mark Rossetti pleaded guilty and were sentenced last week to prison in connection with an armed home invasion in Revere.
“These defendants executed a violent and bloody armed home invasion in connection with an extensive criminal organization led by alleged mob captain Mark Rossetti,” said AG Martha Coakley. “More than 30 defendants have now been found guilty and sentenced in connection with that criminal enterprise.”
Yasmani Quezada, 33, of Revere, and Marc Brown, age 24, of East Boston, pleaded guilty on Oct. 15 in Suffolk Superior Court. Quezada and Brown both pleaded guilty to Armed Home Invasion, Armed Robbery, Armed Kidnapping, Assault and Battery with a Dangerous Weapon (2 counts), Assault and Battery Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury, Possession of a Firearm to Commit a Felony, Unlicensed Possession of a Firearm and Unlicensed Possession of Ammunition. Quezada also pleaded guilty to Possession of Cocaine with Intent to Distribute.
After the plea was entered, Superior Court Judge Christine Roach sentenced Quezada to 12 years to 12 years and a day in state prison, with three years of probation to serve upon his release. That sentence will run concurrent with a six to eight year prison sentence in connection with heroin trafficking that Quezada received in February 2013 and a four-and-a-half to seven year state prison sentenced he received in July 2012, after he and Rossetti were found guilty in connection with ordering a home break-in in Roslindale to steal heroin and money.
Judge Roach sentenced Brown to 10 to 12 years in state prison, with three years of probation to serve upon his release.
QUESTIONS IN ASSAULT
Police are conducting an ongoing investigation into a situation on Roughan Street where a family has repeatedly been threatened, and a teen-age girl was assaulted last Friday.
Police said they haven’t been able to get much information from the family, but the 14-year-old daughter was followed home by two individuals from Jones Road who beat her up.
Officers have been apprised of the threats, but have yet to determine what the underlying issue is in the case.
CLICK IT OR TICKET COMING
Mayor Dan Rizzo and Police Chief Joseph Cafarelli announced that the Revere Police, in partnership with the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security’s (EOPSS) Highway Safety Division (HSD), will be cracking down on motorists who are not buckling up during the October Click It or Ticket high-visibility enforcement campaign.
The Halloween crackdown runs Oct. 18 to Nov. 1 and local law enforcement officers will be enforcing the seat belt law around the clock – day and night. They are prepared to ticket anyone not wearing a seat belt. In fact, everyone in the car found not wearing a seat belt will be ticketed.
In Massachusetts, preliminary crash data from October 2011 shows there were 37 fatalities and over 275 people with incapacitating injuries who were not wearing a seat belt. Around and during the Halloween holiday when people will be transporting trick-or-treaters to and from party areas, it is especially important that everyone arrives safely and buckled up.
“You will see us out in force during the October/Halloween campaign. We will be showing zero tolerance for anyone who is not wearing a seat belt. Our simple goal is to save more lives,” said Chief Cafarelli.
