Thousands of police officers are in our nation’s capital to honor their fallen colleagues. Many of them are from local departments.
Two Massachusetts officers are among the 144 that will be memorialized.
The families of Sgt. Sean Gannon and Sgt. Michael Chesna are in Washington D.C. They flew down, but Sgt. Gannon’s wife and one of his colleagues took a long way – for a good reason.
Four days and 300 miles later, the wife of fallen Yarmouth Police Sgt. Sean Gannon arrived in our nation’s capital with dozens of her late husband’s colleagues – and law enforcement from around the region – cheering her on in the rain.
Dara Gannon finished the police unity tour from New Jersey to D.C. with Yarmouth Detective Mike Wells.
It raises money for the National Law Enforcement Officer’s Memorial, which now has both Sgt. Gannon and Weymouth Police Sgt. Michael Chesna’s name.
The end of the ride marks the beginning of National Police Week, which will honor 144 officers from around the country that were killed in the line of duty.
Elysia Rodriguez Attleboro
Police in Attleboro are searching for a suspect in a violent attack on a person with disabilities. Police say the suspect, 29-year-old Cory Silva of Attleboro viciously assaulted and robbed a disabled individual outside of business last Wednesday evening.
“I got a concussion, a broken cheekbone, broken eye socket in two places, all kinds of stuff, my ribs are killing me,” the victim told Boston 25 News.
He says he briefly chatted with the man before he walked into a liquor store on Pine Street. He says he had never met him before. The exchange was friendly, but when he came out of the store, things took a turn.
“Next thing I know, I’m on the ground fending for my life,” he said. The 50-year-old says he’s disabled and also has a brain injury from the fall.
Attleboro Police say they arrested one person from the video, but are still looking for Silva. The victim told us the men took cash from his pocket and a chain that belonged to his late grandmother.
