Grabbing of beer leads to stabbing
Thomas George Lamoureux, 51, of 154 Pond St. was arrested on Saturday after allegedly stabbing his girlfriend's brother, then leaving the scene to go to Autumnfest. According to reports, Lamoureux went to visit a girl at 56 Hazel St. late Saturday afternoon. The girl was out, but she arrived home via taxi with beer and according to her brother, David Michaud, Lamoureux "rushed his sister and tried to take her beer." The girl reportedly pushed Lamoureux away and Michaud told police the suspect pushed his sister back.
Upset that Lamoureux pushed his sister, Michaud told police that he walked towards the suspect carrying a wheelchair. A struggle ensued and according to Michaud, when he escaped Lamoureux's grasp, he saw that he'd been cut. Reports state that Michaud had a three-inch cut which would require stitches.
Lamoureux allegedly left the scene and was located by detail officers and EMTs at Autumnfest. It was discovered that the suspect also had warrants and he was taken in on charges of domestic assault, larceny under $500, domestic vandalism and felony assault with a dangerous weapon.
