EAST BOSTON: At about 9:45 PM, on Friday, February 15, 2019, officers assigned to District A-7 (East Boston) arrested three males in the area of One Winthrop Street in East Boston. While on directed patrol in the area of the above-mentioned location due to recent reports of a group causing a disturbance while hanging posters which were upsetting some of the residents, officers observed a group of males wearing face masks. Officers approached the group, one of which had been carrying a can of spray paint, in an attempt to speak with them. While speaking with one of the members of the group, who was extremely uncooperative, the male removed his wallet from his pocket. However, when officers reached to obtain what they thought would be the male’s identification card, they were met by the male slapping the officer’s hand away. Officers placed the male under arrest. Officers subsequently arrested two additional members of the group.
Officers arrested Matthew Wolf, 26-years-old, of Lowell, Tylar Larson, 18-years-old, of Rochester, NY, and Christopher Hood, 20-years-old, of Malden. Wolf is charged with Assault and Battery on a Police Officer, Larson is charged with Carrying a Dangerous Weapon, and Hood is charged with Carrying a Dangerous Weapon. All are expected to be arraigned in East Boston District Court on Tuesday, February 19, 2019.
