WEBSTER - Police were called to the area of Prospect Street and Short Street at 7 p.m. last Friday night on reports of a fight.
Officer Michael Reardon was the first officer to arrive on the scene, and reported that multiple people were fleeing the area on foot. One of them, later identified as Timothy J. Williams, 25, of 13 Dolge Court, Oxford, ran across the street towards a dark unlit back yard of a house.
Williams ignored Officer Reardon's verbal commands to stop and tried to climb a stockade fence. Williams was warned he would be tasered if he didn't stop and show his hands. He refused, was tasered, and taken into custody.
Officer Reardon had seen two suspects fleeing on foot down Prospect Street; they had headed to North Main Street, where they were stopped by Officer Timothy Whiting. They were identified as Terrell A. Bradshaw, 18, of 49 Freeland St. Apt. 3 in Worcester and Abdel Espinal-Borrera, 18, of 139 Cambridge St. Apt. 1, Worcester, and were arrested and charged.
According to the police report, the three, along with another possible suspect, had broken into the apartment of Jeffrey Redmiles of 40 Prospect St. Apt. 2. Redmiles told police that people broke into his apartment and robbed him. He said at least one person was armed with a gun, who struck him with the pistol. He said they assaulted him again and stole his cell phone and a Hershey bar. Police recovered the Hershey bar but have not found the cell phone.
The police report noted that Redmiles is a known narcotics dealer in the apartment complex, which it described as being in a high crime area, where police have responded to many calls for altercations, drug dealing, and firearms.
Espinal later told told police that he and Williams and Bradshaw were all members of the Kilby street Gang from Worcester. He said they had come to collect money owed to them.
The three were arraigned in Dudley District Court on Monday and held on bail.
