9 arrested in connection with Brighton bar brawl

Boston police have arrested nine men in connection to a bar brawl in Brighton earlier this year that left a 20-year-old man seriously injured, according to authorities.

On January 24, authorities said about 20 men attacked the victim inside the Green Briar Pub on Washington Street just before 1 a.m. The victim sustained serious injuries after he was kicked and beaten with fists, bottles, and chairs, according to a joint statement from the Suffolk District Attorney’s office and Boston police. He was transported to nearby St. Elizabeth’s Hospital for treatment.

During the investigation, police obtained video footage from multiple cameras at the bar, which was used to identify the charged suspects.


The nine men were arraigned on one count each of assault and battery and three counts each of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, according to authorities: Dominique Finch, 26, of Jamaica Plain; Jamall Fisher, 33; Joe Simmons, 29, of Dorchester; Leroy Wells, 30, of Plymouth; Nasean Johnson, 32, of the South End; Roosevelt Wilkins, 29, of Dorchester; Terrence Wilkins, 25, of Quincy; Tyrone Wilkins, 31, of South Boston; and Marquise Miller, 31, of Dorchester.

Theodore Gamble, 31, of Jamaica Plain, was also arrested on an unrelated charge, according to authorities. Boston police said they are still looking for two additional suspects: Charles Bowman, 25, and Justin Searcy, 26, both of Jamaica Plain.


Police said they recovered two firearms, eight rounds of ammunition, and one high-capacity magazine while executing search warrants for clothing and other items depicted in the videos.
