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

Local Woman Helps Run Girls Soccer Club in Haiti

What began as a 10-day trip to Haiti in 2011 for Taryn Silver turned into a new home and about 50 new friends.    Silver, a former Sharon resident, 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. Silver moved to Haiti in 2012 to work for the St. Boniface Haiti Foundation in Fond-des-Blancs. It was there where she met Andover native Molly Klarman who had started the club last year. “On the streets and fields in Haiti you almost always see only boys playing soccer. This club offers the girls of Fond-des-Blancs a chance to play soccer, exercise, and have fun,” Silver said in an email to Sharon Patch. “We have 53 girls on our roster. The ages range from 13-22 with a few girls who are older (24, 26, 28). All of our girls are in school and live within a 35-minute walk to the practice field,” she said. 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, Silver said. “Most girls that go to school have tons of chores they are responsible for doing after school. Including getting water, cooking food for the family, doing laundry and taking care of younger siblings,” she said. “I think it has mainly been for boys because of the gender roles in Haitian culture. We hope this club will help to shift those in the community and offer the girls a chance to be in the spotlight,” said Silver. When it first began the club had 20 girls. This year the roster has more than doubled in size. “Molly and I visited the schools in the community [in January] to invite new girls who might be interested. We thought we might have 25 girls interested, but now we have over 50 and girls keep showing interest,” said Silver. Silver said the club has been a success because it is fun for the women and it gives them confidence. Some of the girls shared why they like soccer and what the club means to them. The following are statements from some of the girls in the club that have been translated from Creole into English: Marie Danise Azor – 16 years old “I want to play soccer, because I love it so much. It is something important and that’s reason I want to play […]

Woman Charged with Drug Possession at Boston Medical Center

The following information was supplied by the Boston Police Department. Charges listed do not indicate convictions. A Boston woman was arrested and charged with drug possession at the Boston Medical Center campus over the weekend after allegedly tresspassing and giving police a fake name. Police responded to Boston Medical Center at 3 a.m. on Sunday for a report of a person doing drugs at 840 Harrison Ave.  When police arrived, they reportedly found multiple syringes in the area. Police interviewed a woman they suspected to be involved, who said she had no medical reason to be at Boston Medical Center, police said. During the interview, the woman allegedly gave a fake name to police.  The woman, Loralie Fuller, of 39 Boylston St., was arrested and charged with tresspassing. During a search, officers reportedly found an unmarked pill bottle with dozens of Ibuprofen 800mg pills. When asked where she got these, Fuller told police, “I got them from a friend. They aren’t mine,” according to the report. Using Fuller’s real name, police learned that she had two outstanding default warrants out of Boston District Court for drug possession charges, and another warrant out of Fitchburg District Court for shoplifting.  Fuller was charged with trespassing and possession of a Class E substance.

Months After Heart Transplant, Woman Seeks To Give Back

    Jane Tecce has the unique perspective of having experienced both sides of being an organ donor. Years ago after her son’s death at the age of 24, his organs were donated so that others could have a new chance at life. Now, Tecce herself is still recovering from a heart transplant that she received some 16 months ago. She also received a kidney transplant at that time. “My kids are starting to have kids now. I’m being a grammy. I can’t imagine not being here,” she said in a recent conversation with Patch.com. Tecce said that she was first diagnosed with heart disease about 12 years ago. Tecce moved to Lynnfield two years ago and grew up in Wakefield, graduating from Wakefield Memorial High School. Her family owns Santoro’s in Peabody, she reported. Her motivation to help spread the word about becoming an organ donor is not limited to just her own experiences. Tecce lost one brother, David, to heart disease when he was 51 and waiting for a heart transplant. A younger brother Jimmy, reportedly had a heart transplant in 2000 at Tufts and lived for eight years after that. “I’ve been on both ends of it. That’s what I feel is important,” she said. According to Tecce, organ donors and recipients actually interact somewhat routinely through email and letters if they wish to do so – although this typically won’t happen until a year or so after a transplant. In her own case, she met her donor’s family, who were from Rhode Island, on the one-year anniversary of the transplant, something she described as “very emotional.” Those who receive an organ transplant will face an elevated risk of infection in the months after the procedure, and Tecce recalled having some setbacks in the early going. “In the last six months, I’ve done really, really well,” she said, adding that she also hopes to return to work while also potentially doing some speaking and information tables for the New England Organ Bank. “I want to remember the people that gave me this chance,” said Tecce.
