Woburn Police Arrest Man for Assaulting Police Officer and Hitting Pedestrian With Vehicle
WOBURN — Acting Chief of Police Robert Rufo reports that the Woburn Police Department today arrested a man for allegedly assaulting a police officer and seriously injuring a pedestrian after fleeing the scene of a larceny yesterday morning.
At approximately 9 a.m. yesterday, Woburn Police responded to a business in North Woburn for a reported theft. TYSON DELGADO, AGE 29, OF WINTHROP, was on scene and being interviewed by police when he assaulted an officer and fled the scene in a white sedan. While attempting to escape police, DELGADO struck and seriously injured a pedestrian before parking his vehicle and fleeing on foot. Woburn, Winchester, and the Massachusetts State Police K-9 unit immediately conducted a search of the area, but were unable to locate the suspect.
Through an investigation, Woburn Police Detectives were able to find DELGADO in Dorchester this afternoon, and working with Boston Police, were able to apprehend him without incident.
DELGADO is charged with:
- Larceny Over $250
- Assault and Battery on a Police Officer
- Leaving the Scene of an Accident after Causing Serious Personal Injury
- Assault and Battery with a Dangerous Weapon on a Person Over 65
- Negligent Operation of a Motor Vehicle
Boston Police performed a courtesy booking and DELGADO was transferred to the Woburn Police Station where he will be held pending his arraignment tomorrow at Woburn District Court.
“Thanks to the diligent work by police in this case, we were able to quickly locate this dangerous suspect and take him in without any incident,” Acting Chief Rufo said. “I would like to acknowledge all of our law enforcement partners, including the Massachusetts State Police Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section for their assistance in this matter, and thank the public for their cooperation.”
These are allegations. All suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty.
Chief Robert Ferullo is currently away on vacation.
