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

Over the Hump: 6 Items to Help You Through Wednesday

Are Wednesdays really so tough? Well, yes, they can be. Here, though, is to keeping things in perspective. For more than a month now, Patch and Grape-Nuts have teamed up to present stories about your neighbors – neighbors who have faced challenges that would seem insurmountable to many of us.  But not to the people we’ve featured in this series, Journeys. Not surprisingly, the stories have generated dozens of comments on Patch and on Facebook: “Great story…” “Thanks for sharing…” “So wonderfully inspiring…” And, so, here they are again. Great stories shared to inspire. Take a look at what these people have faced. Then click on the story to see their responses. And feel better about your tough Wednesday.  Local Woman Helps Run Girls Soccer Club in Haiti For Taryn Silver, what began as a 10-day trip to Haiti in 2011 turned into a new home and close to 50 new friends. A former Sharon resident, Silver helps run the Association Sportives des Jeunes Filles de Fond des Blancs (The Sports Association of Young Women of Fond des Blancs), a girls soccer club in the rural town of Fond-des-Blancs, about 70 miles west of the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince. The club offers an opportunity that Haitian women rarely get due to lack of funding, time and also due to the cultural roles Haitian men and women often play.  ___ Cleanup Organizer Sees a Future of Smaller Footprints Pat Conaway is “kind of a nut” about the environment, and when he retired from teaching in 2008, it didn’t take long for him to find a number of productive ways to spend his time. He now sees hope in the young people who help him clean trails, waterways and roadways. “I wanted to get people fired up about the environment, to try to encourage citizens to get involved locally,” he said. ___ Home Sales for the Love of Rescued Animals Three years ago while on the Internet, Weston real estate agent Leslie Mann read a story on the Internet that horrified her: A female pit bull-type dog named Turtle had been abandoned in a wooded area in the middle of winter.  Badly injured, Turtle showed signs of being a bait dog, one used to test the fighting instinct of a potential fight dog. The Animal Rescue League of Boston stepped in to help, and nursed Turtle back to health through six months of treatment at Tufts Veterinary Hospital in Walpole. The story was enough to inspire Mann to raise about $ 6,000 for Turtle’s treatment. And even though Turtle is now on the mend, Mann and her husband, both […]

The protest began peacefully around noon but moved into the street 20 minutes later. After seven in folding chairs or wheelchairs stopped traffic for another 20 minutes, police moved in arrested “four to five” of them, according to an officer on the scene.  The rally, organized by MassUniting and the Massachusetts Senior Action Coaltion, was called to protest the large fare hikes to the MBTA’s paratransit service The RIDE.
