Police: Man Assaulted Woman over Car Keys on Columbus Avenue

The following information was supplied by the Boston Police Department. Charges listed do not indicate a conviction. Northeastern Police arrested a Lexington man for assaulting a woman at her Columbus Ave apartment on Friday night after she allegedly would not hand over the keys to his car. Police were called to the Columbus Avenue apartment at about 10:22 p.m. The victim told police that a man threw her to the ground after she took his car keys because she thought he was too drunk to drive. Police interviewed the suspect, Vu Tuananh of 29 Constitution Road, Lexington, MA, reporting that he appeared to be visibly drunk. Tuananh said that he went out in Boston, had a few beers and that the victim wouldn’t give him his keys when he tried to leave. At this point, an argument broke out and the suspect tried to grab the victim’s bag and she fell over in the midst of the struggle. He told police that the victim grabbed a kitchen knife and tried to stab him. The victim said that she picked the suspect up from softball practice and the two were gearing up to go out when she noticed that the suspect wasn’t sober enough to drive and wouldn’t hand over his keys. The suspect then grabbed the victim and a struggle ensued. The victim claimed that the suspect elbowed her in the face twice. The victim said that she then tried to leave the apartment, but the suspect would not let her leave. She then told police that she picked up a kitchen knife and told the suspect to move out of the way. She then threw the knife into the kitchen area and fled the apartment.   According to police, the victim claimed that the suspect chased her down the hallway to the stairs, where he grabbed her purse and sent the victim to the ground, breaking her iPhone. At this point, the victim fought off the suspect and ran to the proctor area of the dormitory and called the police.  After hearing both sides of the story, Boston Police arrested Tuananh and charged him with assault and battery, kidnapping and malicious destruction of property. Officers searched the hallway and found a broken iPhone on the ground near the apartment room. The victim was treated for visible scratches on her left arm.  SOUTH END PATCH: Facebook | Twitter | E-mail Updates South End Patch

South End Answers: Tree Removal on Columbus Ave

In this week’s “You Ask, Patch Answers” column, where we find the answers to your questions, a South End reader asked about a large tree that was being taken down on Columbus Ave on Friday. “Any idea why they are taking down a huge tree over on Columbus Ave today? Seems unnecessary?” Reader Dave wrote in via Twitter.  To find out the answer, I reached out to Boston’s Parks and Recreation Department, which is in charge of all tree removal in Boston.  The large tree, an 80-year-old elm, was taken down on Friday at Carter Playground, 709 Columbus Ave., because it has Dutch Elm disease.  “The Department hopes that by removing this tree we will prevent other elms in the park from being contaminated,” said Jacquelyn Goddard, a Parks Department spokesperson. “The Department will be conducting routine examinations during the year to inspect the rest of the tree stock to see if other elms remain healthy.” A related reminder to residents and business owners: A hearing must be held for the removal of any street trees in the city. The city issued fines earlier this year to business owners who removed trees without permission.  Got a question about the neighborhood you want answered?
