Man broke into Hanover Street apartment, beat woman, then smashed into bathroom where she took refuge with her young son, DA says

A Revere man was ordered held without bail Friday after his arrest on domestic-violence charges for an incident on Hanover Street in the North End the night before, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.

A Boston Municipal Court judge ordered Andrew Pucci, 29, locked up until at least a dangerousness hearing on Wednesday on charges of assault and battery on a family or household member, home invasion and malicious destruction of property over $1,200, the DA's office says.

According to the DA's office, police responded to a domestic-violence call around 6:30 p.m. on Thursday:

The victim told police that Pucci kicked in her front door, entered the apartment and punched her in the face. The victim then fled to the bathroom and locked the door. Pucci kicked the bathroom door in, kicked two plastic bins being used to barricade the door into the victim’s body, then fled when another person arrived on the scene.

The victim reported that Pucci stole money from her wallet, her apartment keys and her son’s Playstation. The woman refused medical treatment.

Pucci was arrested later that evening when Massachusetts General Hospital security notified police that Pucci had checked in to the hospital’s emergency department.

Innocent, etc.

Seriously tho, this is why we NEED dangerousness hearings. Folks who want to abolish them make some good points about unequal application and that should be fixed. But no way a guy like this should be able to post bond without a THOROUGH hearing.
