Teapot bested knife in East Boston fight, police say

UPDATE: Ermilov tells NBC Boston the guests attacked him first and he grabbed the knife in self defense..

A man who manages an Airbnb short-term rental at 140 Marginal St. in East Boston attacked a person renting a room and his guest with a kitchen knife early Saturday and stopped only when one of them smashed a glass teapot over his head, police say.

Police say Alexandr Ermilov, 29, was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and malicious destruction of property. He was released on $300 bail at his arraignment today, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.

Police say Ermilov got into an argument with one of the men and became enraged enough to smash down the door of the first-floor room being rented by one of the men, and his guest, who had returned from a club earlier in the evening.

Police did not say what caused the initial argument, but said that when officers arrived, around 4:30 a.m., they found one victim covered in blood, blood smeared on the walls and a smashed bedroom door.

Neither of the victims nor Ermilov suffered life threatening injuries, police say.

Innocent, etc.

I doubt that would've happened in a hotel [at least not by staff]... just saying...

Zero percent chance that charity (a wonderful one) is doing their work in that building in 2030.

It's almost like hotels have far more overhead than Airbnb and Airbnb can charge a lot less as a result.

Margin Street is in the North End; Marginal Street runs along the waterfront in East Boston.

Funny thing, but if you search for the host's name on Facebook, the first result is a guy with a pair of teapots as his cover photo.
