An officer in Massachusetts was injured after a group of protestors reportedly surrounded officers after vandalism took place.

According to police, at about 9:30 p.m., on Saturday, officers assigned to District A-1 (Downtown) responded to a call for a protest at the Parkman Bandstand Monument located within the Boston Common, 139 Tremont Street.

Upon arrival, officers observed an individual defacing the monument with spray paint. The tagging read “NO COP CITY” and “ACAB”. The suspect was later identified as Jared Dowell, 23, of Melrose.

During the arrest of Jared Dowell, a group of about 20 protesters began to surround officers while screaming profanities though megaphones on the public street causing traffic to come to a standstill. While interfering with the arrest of Jared Dowell, an officer was hit in the face and could be seen bleeding from the nose and mouth.

Jared Dowell was placed under arrest and charged with; Assault by Means of a Dangerous Weapon, Destruction or Injury of Personal Property and Damage of Property by Graffiti/Tagging. Dowell is expected to be arraigned in Boston Municipal Court.

In a second incident just before 10:30 p.m. on Saturday, officers assigned to District A-1 (Downtown) made a second arrest at the Parkman Bandstand Monument of Andrea Colletti, 27, of Brighton. After attempting to flee on foot, she was apprehended. After a brief struggle ensued, she was placed under arrest and charged with; Damage of Property by Graffiti/Tagging, Destruction or Injury of Personal Property and Resisting Arrest. Colletti is expected to be arraigned in Boston Municipal Court.

    His mother is a dem Congresswoman I’m sure him and his ANTIFA comrades will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. I’m sure the new AG will set an example that the men & women of the Boston PD will not be attacked by violent thugs. Just kidding. community service for all. They’ll be at it again.
