January 17, 2019

BRIDGEPORT - When two local women tossed out their male roommate because of his gang activities police said they didn’t expect he would come back with friends.

Police said they arrested three members of the MSB gang after they broke into the victim’s home and assaulted them.

They said the gang members almost made it too easy, posting video of the attack on Facebook.

George “P.J.” Christie, 28, Isiah “Ca’ramel Da’lite” Boyd,20, and Tenasia “Lovely Nay” Hearst, 26, were all charged with home invasion, second-degree robbery and second-degree assault.

Christie was being held in lieu of $300,000 bond while the two other defendants were being held in lieu of $250,000 bond each.

Police said the two victims told them Christie had been their roommate, but they had kicked him out of the apartment because of his gang activities.

The two women had been asleep when several people broke into the apartment and dragged them out of bed, police said. Two of the assailants began beating and stomping the two women while a third recorded it.

Police said Christie later posted the video of the attack on his Facebook page.

They said Boyd admitted taking part in the attack.

“If I want to be down I’ve got to go along with the big dogs,” police said Boyd told them.
