Perverted Poseur and Other Police Tales

"Three accused of assaulting police officer

Three men were arrested in Mattapan Sunday night and have been charged with unlawful possession of a firearm and ammunition, resisting arrest, and assault and battery on a police officer, according to Boston police. Police stopped Daneroy Gordon, 29, of Hyde Park, Locksley Carroll, 24, of Hyde Park, and Maurice Sexton, 19, of Dorchester, as they walked along Blue Hill Avenue after residents in the area reported hearing gun shots around midnight, police said in a statement. While police frisked Carroll for a weapon, Gordon and Sexton attempted to flee in a car, police said. Police ordered them to stop. Officers said Gordon grabbed a firearm from his waistband. As police wrestled for the gun, it fell to the ground and police recovered it, they said. The men will be arraigned this morning (Boston Globe)."

Maybe you shouldn't stop for police, right, ladies -- and now MEN?

"Police investigate sexual assault of man

A man was sexually assaulted in Everett last night by another man carrying a semi-automatic handgun and badge, said Malden police, who assisted in the investigation because the alleged assault occurred close to the Everett town line. At about 9:15 p.m., a white 6-foot-2-inch male between 40 and 50 years old showed a handgun and badge to the victim and forced him into his vehicle near a cemetery, said Malden Lieutenant Glenn Cronin. The suspect was driving a newer blue Ford Expedition with what the victim described as police, fire, or EMS stickers on the back, Cronin said. He was wearing black shorts, a black T-shirt, and white sneakers, Cronin said. There were no arrests as of late last night, and the incident is under investigation by Everett police, Cronin said. Everett police declined to comment (Boston Globe)."

But just do whatever the cop tells you, reader.

"Roslindale man held in cocaine arrest

A Roslindale man was carrying 14 kilograms of cocaine in a hidden compartment in his car Saturday afternoon when he was arrested in Lynn, with the help of a police dog, prosecutors said. Yorgi Tejeda, 33, of 85 Archdale Road, was arrested on Boston Road in Lynn and was being held without bail. Essex District Attorney Jonathan W. Blodgett said in a press release that the cocaine has a street value of more than $1 million and that the arrest was the result of a three-year effort of a drug task force. Officers from several law enforcement agencies helped in the arrest, including State Police Trooper John Fallon and his K-9 "Richter," according to the release (Boston Globe)."
