A Belmont man wanted on a series of serious crimes including rape and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, was captured late Sunday, March 11, by Darby, Penn. police.
Peter Bozier, 19, of 19 Weber Rd. has been on the run from law enforcement since October of last year when the Middlesex County District Attorney's Office issued warrants for his arrest, including one for rape, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, aggravated assault, intimidation of a witness and possession of ammunition, according to District Attorney Gerard Leone's office.
He was arrested Sunday after being spotted selling drugs in the suburb of Philadephia. During the arrest, Bozier fought with officers who discovered a knife near him that they believe was his.
Bozier now also faces charges of aggravated assault, resisting arrest, possession of instruments of a crime, violation of a controlled substance act, criminal mischief and disorderly conduct during his arrest.
Bozier's alleged sexual assault occurred in Belmont prior to a Oct. 15 assault and battery incident that left another Weber Road resident seriously injured.
Belmont Police said the sexual attack was not random and is not connection to a pair of sexual assaults that occurred in July and September.
Earlier this week, Belmont Police detectives arrested William Chen, 20, of 37 Gordon Terr., Bozier's accomplice in the violent assault.
Bozier was last seen in Belmont about a month ago when he spent the night at a friend's house. During that stay, Bozier reportedly stole computer equipment from the house.
