A man and a woman face multiple charges after banging on a Watertown man’s door, and attacking him, his friend and the friend’s wife.
Police received a report of a disturbance involving several people on the 300 block of Main Street at 10:22 p.m. on Sept. 26, said Watertown Police Lt. James O’Connor. A man later identified as 21-year-old Reuben Urquiza-Cabrera, was seen attacking the homeowner.
“When the officer arrived he saw Cabrera kicking a male with his foot,” O’Connor said.
The victims told police that they were in their home when someone began shaking the door and ringing the door bell, O’Connor said. The homeowner, a 67-year-old man, went down to see what was going on and Cabrera attacked him.
“The homeowner was attacked, his shirt was ripped off, he was thrown to the ground and kicked,” O’Connor said.
The man’s friend, who is 72-years-old, went to see what was happening and he was also attacked by Cabrera.
“He was also thrown to the ground,” O’Connor said.
When the friend’s 69-year-old wife saw what was going on she tried to intervene and Cabrera grabbed her and threw her to the ground.
A woman, identified as 20-year-old Alyssa Owens, also was seen attacking the homeowner, O’Connor said.
O’Connor said it is not clear what prompted the attack or why they attacked the people at that address.
The incident attracted the attention of people in a nearby restaurant, who came out to see what was going on, O’Connor said. Also, people at Moxley Park stopped what they were doing to find out what was happening.
When police attempted to place Cabrera under arrest he resisted by holding his arms at his side. When police were speaking to the victims and witnesses, Owens began screaming and yelled profanities at police and others. She was told to calm down multiple times but she would not.
Reuben Urquiza-Cabrera, 21, of Waltham, was arrested on three counts of assault and battery on a person 60 or over, and one count each of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon on a person 60 or over, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct, O’Connor said.
Alyssa Owens, 20, of Waltham, was arrested on charges of assault and battery on a person 60 or over, disorderly conduct, and resisting arrest.
