FRAMINGHAM – A sunny, Saturday afternoon in the Trader Joe’s parking lot in Framingham, ended up in a fight, a man with a fractured leg, and a pending hate crime charge.
Framingham Police were called to the parking lot at 659 Worcester Road at 11:59 a.m. on October 16 for a possible fight.
When officers arrived at the parking lot then found a husband and wife had subdued a Framingham man, whom they said was harassing them, physically assaulting them, and calling them “racist” names, according to Framingham Police.
A couple were sitting in their vehicle when a man approached the vehicle and started beating on the vehicle, said police.
The man punched the vehicle, kicked the vehicle, and shook the vehicle, said Framingham Police spokesperson Lt. Harry Wareham.
The man inside the vehicle, the victim, said Lt. Wareham, asked the man to stop.
The man did not, so the husband got out of the vehicle.
The man grabbed the husband by his face and scratched him under his eye, said Lt. Wareham reading the police report over the phone to SOURCE.
The wife then got out of the vehicle and went to help her husband. The two men were physically on top of each other fighting, explained Lt. Wareham.
The man spit on the woman and was yelling “Muslim Bitch” to her, said Lt. Wareham. The police report said the woman was wearing a hijab.
The man was telling the couple they were “f&%$ing terrorists,” said Lt. Wareham.
The woman and her husband were able to subdue the man, by the time police arrived, said Lt. Wareham.
The man, who attacked the couple physically and verbally, ended up with a “fractured leg” and was transported to Brigham & Women’s Hospital in Boston by ambulance, said Lt. Wareham.
Charges are pending, said Lt. Wareham.
Police plan to charge Aleksey Cherednichenko of Framingham with a hate crime, assault & battery, among other charges, said Lt. Wareham.
“Charges are pending. He has not been formally charged yet as he is still in the hospital,” said Lt. Wareham.
