FRAMINGHAM – Framingham Police, who arrested a Marlborough woman last week on charges of assault & battery with a dangerous weapon, after a road rage incident, are now possibly pursuing additional charges, as the incident may have also been xenophobic, as well as violent.

“This disturbing road rage incident that took place on Wednesday, March 29 in Framingham is another reminder of the hate many in our immigrant communities face on a daily basis. We urge Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan to work with the appropriate authorities to prosecute the perpetrator to the fullest extent of the law,” said Executive Director of the Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy (MIRA) Coalition Elizabeth Sweet said.

“Xenophobia has no place in the Commonwealth. The MIRA Coalition and our partners are here to help the victim and her family, and to provide support to immigrants across the state,” said MIRA Director Sweet.

Yesterday, Mayor Charlie Sisitsky issued a statement, as did State Rep. Priscila Sousa.

City of Framingham Mayor Charlie Sisitsky said “This unfortunate event is not reflective of those who call Framingham home, as the City of Framingham prides itself on being a welcoming and safe community for all.”
