Police responded to a reported assault with a deadly weapon at the Dunkin’ Donuts at 220 Broadway last Saturday morning.

The alleged victim told officers that he had been threatened with a knife by one of two men who were together in the eatery.

After getting descriptions of the men in question, police soon located them on the street and made inquiries as to their side of the story.

The two brothers claimed that they had gone into Dunkin’s in order to use the bathroom, but denied having any sort of confrontation with the alleged victim.

Police then went back to Dunkin’s to get more details from the alleged victim. The man said that he was sitting inside Dunkin’ Donuts drinking coffee and that the two men entered the establishment and started harassing several patrons.

The alleged victim stated that one of the men said that he represented 18th Street (Calle 18 in Spanish). The alleged victim stated that both males used different hand signs that appeared to be gang related. The alleged victim stated he was not familiar with gangs.

The alleged victim said that one of the men then took out a black folding knife and held it to the alleged victim’s stomach and threatened him in Spanish. After someone inside Dunkin’ Donuts called 911, the two men left the restaurant.

Police took the alleged victim for a “show-up” in order to identify the accused assailant. The alleged victim identified one of the men as the one who had threatened him with a knife.

William Fuentes, 20, was placed under arrest and charged with assault with a dangerous weapon and threat to commit a crime.

    Anyone bother asking if these two are here legally?

    A summary of “facts”, according to the comments so far:
    Illegal aliens nearly disembowel Villen with knife while policemen were busy ambushing innocent prostitutes and the Mayor was busy micromanaging preparation of videos on how to properly cross the street.

  6. Boston Kate says:

    I just assume that they are illegal. But what’s with the William? I guess he’s trying to assimilate – not.

  7. joe shmoe says:

    stupid dunkin donut gangsters….
    that guy should of just punched their heads in

  8. The ICE Boston Field Office should start paying more attention to all these foreign street gangs in Somerville, as many of which are composed of illegal immigrants.
