Daily Dose of Great Police Work: Officers Arrest Two Sore Losers for Assault and Battery in Brighton


At about 4:53 PM on Tuesday, March 11, 2014, officers assigned to District D-14 (Brighton) responded to a radio call for an assault and battery in progress in the area of 51 Park Vale Ave. in Brighton.

On arrival, officers were met by one of the male victims who stated that he and the other male victim had been playing basketball in their apartment with the two male suspects. During the basketball game, the suspects became enraged and began to attack the victims. In an attempt to get away from the suspects, the victims fled into their bedroom and locked the door. The suspects immediately began to punch and kick the door repeatedly until they broke the door down. Concurrently, the victims grabbed a baseball bat to protect themselves from the suspects who were armed with a knife and a stick. Upon breaking down the door to the bedroom, one of the suspects slashed the victim in the chest with the knife. The other male victim used the bat to successfully knock the knife out of the suspect’s hand.

Arrested was Jaun Sibriano, 33, of Brighton and Macguiber Solorzano, 23, of Allston. Both are charged with Assault and Battery by means of a Dangerous Weapon and Destruction or Injury of Personal Property.
