LOWELL — A rendezvous with a woman he had met on Twitter went from bad to worse for the 18-year-old Tyngsboro guy if the girl’s furious boyfriend showed up at their house as opposed to the woman.
Based on documents, as soon as the jealous boyfriend drove as much as Devon M. Santos’ 114 Sherburne Ave. home at 11 p.m. on April 28, the boyfriend was presumably brandishing a knife and threatening physical violence.
The individual Santos was in fact speaking with on Facebook was evidently the boyfriend.
Santos reacted by presumably pointing exactly what looked like a firearm out of the screen, cocked it and told the boyfriend to leave. Once the boyfriend and their pals drove off, Santos’ mom called law enforcement.
Nevertheless when Tyngsboro police confronted Devon Santos in regards to the problems of brandishing exactly what turned into a BB weapon, Santos presumably became demanded and enraged his BB weapon straight back, according to court documents.
Whenever officers declined, saying it absolutely was proof, Santos presumably threatened to blow the minds from the officers along with his mother, who was simply wanting to relax him down.
Because of their so-called homicidal and suicidal threats, officers chose to handcuff the teenager to simply simply take him to your hospital for the evaluation that is psychiatric. Santos presumably reacted by threatening to kill every person and lunged at Officer John Coburn. Coburn alleged which he felt Santos grab for their solution tool and tug on their responsibility gear.
The documents declare that Coburn and Officer Evan Donnelly feared that Santos could probably eliminate the weapon from his holster, so the officers picked him up from the flooring and strolled him to your settee
After seated, Santos allegedly spit in Donnelly’s face and attempted to go butt both officers. Santos had been taken off the homely home and placed face down into the yard to attend for an ambulance to take him into the medical center, authorities state.
Since the ambulance arrived, Santos allegedly told Donnelly he knew in which the officer lived and therefore he had been likely to kill the officer and their household. Santos also allegedly made threats to Coburn.
In Lowell District Court on Tuesday, Santos was launched on personal recognizance after pleading not liable to fees of: attack and battery pack try to disarm a police; attack and battery pack for a police (three counts); and threats (two counts).
A release to allow the Probation Department access to his treatment, and to not possess any weapons as a condition of his release without bail, Judge Robert Brennan ordered Santos to comply with his mental-health treatment, take his prescribed medications, sign.
His next court date is really a pretrial meeting on June 24.
