Man held without bail for allegedly assault police officers

October 21, 2015

LOWELL, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts man has been placed in custody for allegedly assaulting three police officers.

Jesus Ocasio, 34, of Lowell, is being charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, assault and battery on a police officer, assault, and malicious and wanton damage to a motor vehicle. He was arraigned Tuesday and held without bail. His next court hearing is Nov. 6.

The charges stem from an Oct. 19 incident in which police say Ocasio attacked an officer who approached him on Concord Street concerning recent property destruction. Police say Ocasio matched the description of a man witnesses say smashed a window and side mirror on a car.

Additional officers arriving on scene say Ocasio punched and kicked them while resisting arrest. Three officers sustained non-serious injuries in the scuffle.
