Massachusetts man accused of beating his partner and then beating an animal causing its eventual death



A Massachusetts man is being accused of beating his partner and then beating an animal causing its eventual death.

According to Mansfield Police, on Thursday at approximately 8:00 p.m., Officers responded to an address on North Main Street in Mansfield for a report of a domestic disturbance.

Upon arrival of the officers, a brief investigation revealed that a 29-year-old Mansfield man had committed the crime of Assault and Battery on an Intimate Partner in violation of Massachusetts General Law Chapter 265 $13M/B. He was placed under arrest and transported to the police station for booking.

While additional officers were assisting the victim, it was discovered that the victim’s cat had been severely beaten and was suffering from what appeared to be substantial life-threatening injuries. The obvious signs of trauma to the animal necessitated immediate transportation to Tufts Veterinary Emergency Center in Walpole, MA by Animal Control Officer Collins. The animal was eventually euthanized as a result of two puncture wounds, lung trauma, a broken leg, and a skull fracture.

Investigation of the crime scene led investigators to charge the same 29-year-old Mansfield man with Cruelty to an Animal.

The 29-year-old Mansfield man was arraigned in Attleboro District Court Friday on the aforementioned charges and was held without bail following a Dangerousness Hearing.

Due to Massachusetts State law concerning police divulging information on Domestic Violence incidents, the exact address and name of the offender was withheld.
