Four Charged in "Vicious Attack"

Police have charged four men after a fourth man was beaten and lifeflighted to the hospital.

Four men have been charged in what police describe as a "vicious attack" that resulted in the victim being lifeflighted with severe internal injuries.

"The vicious attack was directed to the torso area, causing serious injuries to (the victim)," said Marlborough Police Officer Keith Moro in his report.

Police responded to a report of a man with a head injury at 10:35 p.m. on Friday, October 5 at Homestead Village on 19 Northboro Road East. When they arrived, they found one male victim who had to be lifeflighted to UMass Memorial Hospital in Worcester, according to court records.

"During the vicious attack, (the victim) suffered a ruptured kidney, left ventrical bleeding and severe bleeding to his internal organs," reported Moro. "(The Victim's) right eye was swollen shut, several front teeth were missing and there were shoe impressions on his left cheek."

Police have charged Efrain Ramos Rodriguez, 49, Mario Olvera, 54, Jose Benjamin Gonzalez, 28, who are all listed as residents at 19 Northboro Road East with assault and battery and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

Darryl Strickland, 52, of 3 Pine Club Drive in Kennesaw Georgia was initially charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, although those charges were increased to aggrivated assault and battery with a dangerous weapon following the evaluation of the victim's condition. A witness described Strickland kicking the victim in the head with his boot.

All four men charged were held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing scheduled for Wednesday.

It was allegedly four people against one. The four men that have been charged allegedly assaulted a fifth person referred to in the article as the victim.

Only assault and battery? They should be charged with attempted murder!

Secure Communities has been enacted in Massachusetts. Citiies and towns like Marlborough will start using it in 2013. All illegals, but especially ones that break the law need to deported.

JM Let me know, and others, when Marlboro starts using Secure Communities! I mean God forbid we try to deport the "poor illegals who are doing no harm" Get sum buses, load the ILLEGALS UP and send them HOME! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
