A homeless man accused of assaulting a MBTA bus driver recently was arrested by Malden Police on Monday for allegedly attempting to break into an Elwell Street house, according to a Boston Globe report.
Douglas Bergeron, 32, along with his alleged accomplice Marie Dreault, 34, of Malden, were arrested Monday afternoon. The pair allegedly tried breaking into the home but were interrupted by the homeowner, and they fled the scene but were apprehended following a brief chase around 2.50 p.m., Malden Police Captain John Amirault told the Globe.
Amirault told the newspaper that the investigation is ongoing, as they look into whether the duo has broken into other homes around the city.
Bergeron, wanted by Transit Police for allegedly assaulting a public employee and interfering with public transportation on Oct. 13 around 9:30 p.m. while on a MBTA bus in Chelsea, is expected to be arraigned Tuesday in Malden District Court on a breaking and entering charge, according to the report. Dreault will also be arraigned Tuesday on a similar charge at the Malden court, the report added.
