Maynard Police Arrest Man Following
MAYNARD — Chief Mark W. Dubois reports that the Maynard Police Department arrested a man Friday evening after he fled on foot following a traffic stop, setting off a multi-town search.
GUY DUSHANEK, AGE 29, OF STOW was arrested and charged with:
- Disorderly Conduct
- Resisting Arrest
- Warrant Arrest (Assault and Battery, Disorderly Conduct and Disturbing the Peace)
At approximately 4:46 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 27, a Maynard Police officer conducted a traffic stop after he observed a vehicle speeding on Acton Street. The passenger, DUSHANEK, was known to have an active warrant for his arrest and subsequently fled upon being identified by the officer conducting the stop.
DUSHANEK fled into the nearby woods behind the Massachusetts State Police (MSP) Crime Lab and eventually made his way into Acton, where Acton Police, the MSP Air Wing and the Belmont Police Department K-9 Unit joined the search effort. As the search continued, commuter rail train service was briefly suspended after DUSHANEK was spotted near the Acton train station.
Police then pinged DUSHANEK’S phone and narrowed his location to the area of Liberty Street, and the MSP Air Wing subsequently observed him running through yards near homes on Maple Steet. Maynard, Acton and State Police then established a perimeter and took DUSHANEK into custody without further incident at approximately 7:30 p.m. near a home on Lothrop Street in Acton.
DUSHANEK was then booked by the Maynard Police Department and subsequently transported to the Billerica House of Correction, where he’ll be held until his arraignment, which is scheduled for Monday.
These are allegations. All suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty.
