The 2nd female victim intervened and told Cocuzzo to stop his behavior. Cocuzzo responded by grabbing the 2nd female victim by her jacket, restraining her against the bus and punching her repeatedly about the body. Cocuzzo then ripped a necklace the victim was wearing off her neck and placed it into his pocket. A third female victim attempted to stop Cocuzzo from his violent assault however he kicked her in the thigh area.

Police say that Cocuzzo then spit at responding officers and resisted being handcuffed. He was charged with assault and battery, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (shod foot0 and unarmed robbery. EMTs examined the women at the scene; none required hospitalization.

Druggie. Maybe it's me, but the problem seems to be getting worse. Definitely more homeless people around of all ages.

Where did he grow up?

If its the same Frank Cocuzzo I grew up with, he is from Roslindale originally. I think down by Healy Field - Sacred Heart area for sure. Last I saw him he was living in West Roxbury a couple of years ago.

Sad...

Those who know him knows he has issues. has a good heart and was trying to do the right thing... Apparently he screwed up bad and has to face the consequences.
Here's hoping first off those women are ok and secondly Frank gets his sh*t together.
