The Attorney General’s Office announced on Thursday that a Cambridge man, aged 27 years is among the four accused charged in the October 23 brawl. He is indicted for punching a stranger on the face and stamping on his head in an Encore Boston Harbor elevator.
A Middlesex grand jury charged the four for the October 23 assault that took place in an elevator of the Everett casino based on video evidence.
As per an investigation undertaken by the Massachusetts State Police Gaming Enforcement Unit at Encore Boston Harbor, video footage recovered from the casino shows that Haley purportedly punched a man in the face, due to which the man fell on the elevator floor.
In a statement, the AG Office stated that
Matthew Haley, aged 27 years of Cambridge and Jose Mercado, aged 32 years of Boston, were charged on one count each for assault and battery using a dangerous weapon (shod foot). Brittany Dawson, aged 24 years of Stoneham and Leilani Reyes, aged 20 years of Somerville, were charged on one count each for hindering a gaming investigation. Dawson, an Encore employee, was also charged on one count for acting as an accessory.
On a later date, the four offenders will be prosecuted by the Middlesex Superior Court.
