Suspect in Custody After Threatening Female Victim with BB Gun in Charlestown


ONE LESS GUN: At about 8:07 PM, on Monday, June 10, 2019, officers assigned to District A-15 (Charlestown) arrested Donquell Mayes, 18, of Stoughton on assault charges after responding to a call for a person with a gun in the area of 49 Corey Street in Charlestown. During the incident, the suspect had displayed what appeared to be a firearm while threatening an adult female victim during a confrontation. Responding officers soon located and stopped the suspect and then recovered what was later determined to be a Magnum Force Desert Eagle BB Gun which he had discarded in a nearby dumpster. The suspect was placed in custody without incident and will be arraigned in Charlestown District Court on charges of Assault by Means of a Dangerous Weapon (to Wit: Gun).
