Boston Globe: 3 from Charlestown Arrested, Charged with Assaulting Cop

A woman and two juvenilles are under arrest after Boston Police say the group attacked an officer as he tried to make an arrest on Tuesday, according to The Boston Globe.

According to the Globe, an officer spotted a 16-year-old he thought matched the description of a suspect involved in Tuesday morning’s stabbing outside Charlestown High School. The teen ran, and officers chased him into a residential building.

The 16-year-old ran from the officers, clutching at his waistband, to 73 O'Reilly Way and entered the residence, according to police. Officers chased him up several flights of stairs and saw him slam a "metallic object" on a window sill, police said in a statement.

The youth refused commands to get on the ground, authorities said, and officers struggled with him and his 13-year-old brother, who both allegedly assaulted police.

During the fracas, a screaming Consuela Ferguson, 33, exited an apartment on that floor and "began grabbing at the officers' arms in an effort to free the suspects," police said.
