Man Arrested After Being Caught Breaking Into Car in Worcester

Friday, May 25, 2018

 

Worcester police arrest man for breaking into car.

A man was arrested after breaking into another man’s car in the area of Vernon Street on Thursday.

Mark Healy, 49, charged with Assault and Battery on a Person over the Age of 60, Assault and Battery with a Dangerous Weapon (box cutter), Disturbing the Peace, and Breaking and Entering in a Motor Vehicle.

The Incident

On Thursday, May 24,  at approximately 12:40 a.m., Worcester Police responded to 196 Vernon Street for a report of a possible carjacking. First arriving officers observed two males fighting in the street next to a Nissan. One man yelled out to the officer that he is the owner of the car and that the other man was seen inside trying to steal his belongings. The suspect was identified as  Healy, 49, of 11 Ronald Drive.

Healy was being held down by the owner of the vehicle until police arrived.

The officers were told that by the owner of the car that he had exited his house to get an item out of his car when he saw Healy inside his car. The owner ordered Healy to get out of his vehicle. Healy refused to get out peacefully and began to punch the owner in the face.

Healy possessed a box cutter and began to swing it at the owner. The owner was able to grab onto his arm and prevent  Healy from striking him with it. The owner was eventually able to get Healy to the ground and secure him until police arrived.

The owner had several facial injuries and was bleeding from the punches that he received from Healy. The owner was checked out at the scene by Worcester EMS and then transported to a nearby hospital for further treatment.

Police looked inside the victim’s car and saw that it had been ransacked. It appears that nothing was missing.
