POLICE INVESTIGATE STABBING AT PARK
Chelsea Detectives are investigating a daylight stabbing that occurred on May 12 at Highland Park at 7:33 p.m.
Officers responded to call for a fight involving several males inside the park. Upon arrival, first responding observed a 33-year-old victim from Chelsea who received multiple stab wounds lying up against a fence. The victim was transported to Massachusetts General Hospital for serious but non life threatening injuries. The victim was uncooperative at the scene and provided officers with limited information. Witnesses reported a group of four to five males entered the park and immediately went to the area where the victim was seated with others. A confrontation ensued and the victim was attacked while others in his group ran from the area. The assailants reportedly left the park and entered a silver Toyota and fled the area. Police believe this was an isolated, and not a random, attack.
Chelsea Detectives are continuing the investigation.
FIFTEEN CHARGED IN CARY AVENUE RAID
Chelsea Police charged fifteen persons for Trespassing, Breaking and Entering and seized several weapons including a loaded Glock 40 caliber handgun inside a vacant Cary Avenue property early Saturday morning. At 1:40 a.m., officers were alerted of trespassers inside a bank owned property at 56 Cary Ave.; officers also received information that some of the persons inside may be armed with firearms. Officers mobilized and responded to the building and made entry into the unit. As police attempted to detain several youth inside the ransacked apartment two individuals attempted to escape by jumping from a second floor window. Those two were paced into custody by police waiting in the rear of the property. The handgun was found unattended in the kitchen area of the apartment and secured by police; the gun was reported stolen to the Boston Police in 2012. Other weapons including a replica handgun, brass knuckles and knives were also seized. The recovered firearm will be processed by Chelsea Detectives and the State Police Crime Lab.
TROOPER ARRESTS OUI DRIVER WHO INJURED TWO PEDESTRIANS
A Chelsea man is expected to be arraigned today in Chelsea District Court on a drunk driving charge after he crashed into a disabled car in Revere early Saturday and pushed that car into two pedestrians – the driver of the disabled car who was from Lynn and a Good Samaritan from Roslindale who had stopped to help her.
Massachusetts State Trooper Brendan Murphy arrested Nicholas Schaeneman, 27, after responding to the crash, which occurred at 2:10 a.m. on Route 1 southbound at the intersection with Route 60 in Revere.
Trooper Murphy’s investigation determined that Schaeneman was operating a 2012 Honda Civic southbound when he struck a 2001 Civic that had become disabled on the side of the road. The impact from the crash pushed the disabled Civic into two pedestrians who were standing near the disabled car. After failing a series of field sobriety tests, Schaeneman allegedly blew a 0.2 on a portable blood alcohol test. He subsequently blew a .22 on a test performed at the Revere State Police Barracks after his arrest, prosecutors said. Troopers located two small, opened bottles of vodka in the Civic’s center console and a case of beer in the trunk.
The Good Samaritan, Amaury Ramirez, 39, is in the hospital fighting for his life, family members said. The 20-year-old Lynn woman suffered face and head injuries and underwent surgery on Monday. Both were transported to the hospital by ambulance from the scene.
The defendant was booked at the State Police Revere Barracks on charges of operating under the influence of alcohol causing serious bodily injury; negligent operation of a motor vehicle; possession of an open container of alcohol in a motor vehicle; and a marked lanes violation.
He was arraigned in Chelsea District Court Monday. Judge Michael Patten set bail at $15,000 and ordered Schaeneman to refrain from driving, remain alcohol-free, and undergo random alcohol screening in the event he is released on bail.
DANGEROUS DRUG SHOWS UP IN EVERETT
Everett Police are warning about a dangerous psychedelic drug that has shown up on the streets – a drug discovered last weekend after the arrest of two people who were acting very strange.
Over the weekend, Everett Police arrested two individuals for displaying strange self–destructive behavior believed to be caused by ingestion of this new designer psychedelic drug called NBOMe or 25i.
This deadly new substance has recently emerged on the illicit drug scene. It’s being marketed to school-aged children and it’s been linked to at least three teenage deaths across the nation, Everett Police said.
The drug is often sold as LSD for as little as $1.50 to $5 a dose, but in fact it’s a toxic chemical with horrific side effects, added police. It can look like stickers or be in the form of a power or pill.
Drug educators say it’s one of the most disturbing developments in the drug scene in the last 20 years.
“Be sure to educate your kids about this new deadly drug; it is in the Metro Boston area,” read a statement by Everett Police.
