Boston Police report arresting a pair of Allston residents on charges they beat up a cabbie in Kenmore Square because they allegedly didn't believe he was driving them home on Comm. Ave. as they'd asked.
The victim, after some time of being verbally abused by the passengers, and noticing their increasing aggressive behavior, decided to pull over in Kenmore Square and terminate the fare. Once stopped, the passengers/suspects pulled him out of the cab and started punching and kicking him until passersby stopped and helped the victim. The suspects then kicked and broke the driver’s side headlight of the taxi along with the driver’s side door.
Andrew Melchiorri, 22, and Jeffrey Cammarata, 25, were arrested on charges of assault and battery, assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon and willful, malicious destruction of property. The cabbie had picked them up early this morning on Congress near Faneuil Hall.
