UPDATE FROM THE FALMOUTH POLICE DEPARTMENT:
Assault & Battery at Boathouse Restaurant (17-23292-AR/OF).
We received a report of a fight involving multiple parties at the Boathouse Restaurant. Upon arrival, officers located an unconscious male in the parking lot with a serious head injury. A second male party also sustained an injury to his face–the left eye area. Both male suspects fled from Boathouse employees toward the Admiralty apartments. Later, officers located the suspects on Main Street. One of the males was placed under arrest for Assault & Battery with Serious Bodily Injury. The other male suspect was placed in Protective Custody and released to a sober party later in the shift. He will be summonsed for the Assault & Battery on the second victim party who sustained a fractured left eye socket and a laceration above his eye. The unconscious male victim was sent via medical flight to the Boston Medical Center for additional medical care. When he left Falmouth Hospital he was in stable condition and the injury was considered non-life threatening.
The investigation is still ongoing, however we have interviewed independent witnesses that indicate that none of the boathouse employees assaulted the two victims. We are also looking into a third person of interest that may be a friend of the two suspects.
HYANNIS – [DEVELOPING] – Pedro Mezzon had planned for Saturday night to be a happy celebration for his friend’s birthday…
… what he didn’t plan for was a night in the hospital wondering if one of his buddies was going to live or not.
HN met with Pedro Mezzon to hear his story while seated at the dinning room table in his Hyannis apartment.
The following HN Video highlights that interview and raises several questions:
1. Are the police going to investigate the bouncer who allegedly broke his face?
2. Who sent his friend to a Boston hospital in coma?
3. Why was a police officer concerned about him being a US Citizen when he was seeking medical attention, holding his face and bleeding?
Note, HN reached out and called the Falmouth Police last evening and spoke with Sgt. Rogers. I wanted to hear their version of things. I left a message for two police lieutenants to get back in touch with me. I’m still waiting to hear back.
Also note, HN called the Boathouse restaurant to hear their side of the story and was unable to get anyone on the phone. I was particularly interested in whether or not they had video footage they’d like to share with the public.
Anyone with any information, insight, or footage regarding Saturday night’s incident is urged to send it to Hyannis News at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the meantime, the following video is just one side of the story with troubling allegations that need to be looked into further…
