Archives For Aggravated Assault
Two stories in today’s headlines are seriously troubling me. I’m deeply saddened by both events. There is no reason why anyone, certainly not a parent, should walk out into oncoming traffic or jump off a bridge holding on to an unknowing, innocent child.
Thomas Kennedy to face charges
MBTA police have made an arrest after a vicious attack on the Red Line in Boston.
Thomas Kennedy, 63, is facing assault charges after he was accused of punching, kicking and verbally attacking a student with cerebral palsy on Tuesday.
The victim was taken to Boston Medical Center for treatment.
Prosecutors said Kennedy was already out on bail after allegedly exposing himself in a different train station in January.
If he makes bail on the new charges, he will undergo alcohol and mental-health screenings.
