Black Teen Family Members PUNCH, BEAT, KICK & CHOKE POLICE OFFICERS While Serving Warrant (Video)
Two Boston police officers were brutally beaten when they went to serve a warrant in Dorchester.
The officers were punched, kicked and choked.
Family members from two apartments beat the officers after Woobenson Morisset resisted arrest and called out for help.
The officers will be off work for “some time” due to their injuries.
The Boston Herald reported:
One Boston police officer took an elbow to the throat that left his vocal cords bleeding and a second officer, punched in the face, will require further treatment for her head and hand after an effort to serve a warrant turned into a brawl with a Dorchester family, police and prosecutors said.
Police Commissioner William B. Evans said his officers were “pretty banged up” and will be out of work for “some time” because of injuries received trying to arrest Woobenson Morisset, 19, on Monday.
“It stresses the dangers of our job every day, going into situations that we never know what can happen,” Evans said.
Cops say Morisset resisted, began fighting and was joined by relatives who poured out of two apartments and joined the fracas.
“From there on it’s essentially a melee. The officers were punched, kicked and choked. It was seven on two,” assistant Suffolk District Attorney Dana Pierce told Roxbury District Court Judge Ernest L. Sarason of the chaos in the narrow stairwell Monday morning at an apartment complex at 6 Wayne St.
Woobenson and his brother, Lorcen Morisset, 18, a high school junior, pleaded not guilty yesterday to assaulting police officers. Lorcen Morisset was released on personal recognizance and given a 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew and placed on a GPS.
