Party in Dorchester turns rowdy; cops attacked, three arrested, police say

Boston Police report arresting three people at a party on Sumner Square in Dorchester early Sunday.

Police say two of the people attacked officers trying to break up what they say was a loud party around 4:40 a.m., one with her fists, one with the boombox he was allegedly using to pump out music. The third, police say, tried to rally partygoers to swarm the officers, police say.

Luca Delguado Santos, 20, of Mattapan, was arrested on charges of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, resisting arrest, interfering with a police officer, disorderly conduct and disturbing the peace, police say. Stephanie Ilma, 24, of Mattapan, was charged with illegal possession of a firearm (taser) assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (shod foot), assault and battery on a police officers, resisting arrest, interfering with a police officer, disorderly conduct and disturbing the peace, police say. Miguel Martinez, 20, of Boston, was charged with disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace and interfering with a police officer, police say.

Police gave this account:

Officers could hear the loud music, and observed a large group of about 70 individuals. Officers advised the group to leave the area multiple times which they refused. Officers observed Santos enticing the crowd by playing music from a portable boombox. As officers approached the suspect, they advised him to turn the speaker off. At this time, Santos swung the speaker and struck a police officer in the knee.

Officers grabbed the speaker from Santos, and a large crowd formed around officers. A second suspect, Ilma, became extremely aggressive towards officers and refused officers orders to step back. Officers informed Ilma she was being placed under arrest, and she began to be combative by punching multiple officers. A violent struggle ensued, and officers were safely able to place Ilma into handcuffs.

During the struggle, Santos jumped on top of officers and attempted to intervene in the arrest of Ilma. Santos refused to obey officers’ orders to stop resisting, and a second struggle ensued. With the assistance of responding officers, Santos was placed into handcuffs.

At this time, Martinez began to entice the crowd that was formed around the arresting officers. Officers advised the suspect to leave the area, which he refused, and was subsequently placed under arrest.

After a search incident to arrest, officers recovered a taser from Ilma’s purse.
