From the Yarmouth Police Department (verbatim):
MAN ARRESTED FOR VIOLENT DOMESTIC ATTACK
On July 11, 2019, at 2:30AM, the Yarmouth Police Department Emergency Dispatch Center received a 911 hang up call from a Yarmouth residence where the caller could be heard screaming "Help me, help me."
Thanks to the technology of 911, Yarmouth Police Department 911 Operators were able to determine the location of the caller despite not being told the address.
Yarmouth Police Department Patrol Sergeant Diana Wells, and Patrol Officers Matt Mangano, Eric Rondina, Chris Capobianco, Mark Thibeault, and Michael Chueng arrived at the address and could hear an infant crying and a female screaming “Help me, help me!" from inside the home.
Police Officers forced entry in to the home and found a female, holding an infant, screaming.
The female reported that the male, who is known to her, had broken in to her home at around 1AM and he began arguing and striking her repeatedly.
The female eventually ran to the basement and called 911 and yelled "Help me, help me" before the male took her phone from her.
On the arrival of Police Officers, the suspect cornered the victim and would not allow her or the infant to escape the basement.
The male suspect was located in the home and placed under arrest.
Members of the Yarmouth Fire Department examined the female but she did not require hospitalization.
All injuries were photographed and the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families were notified.
The suspect was held on $2,500 Cash Bail and transported to the Barnstable District Court this morning for arraignment.
Due to a change in Massachusetts law designed to protect the identity of the survivor, Law Enforcement is not allowed to report the name of the suspect involved in Domestic Violence
Suspect is charged with the following:
Ch. 265/13M/B: Assault and Battery Intimate Relationship
