Report: Teen Throws Sneaker at Cruiser During Tirade Against Police

The teen also pushed over and injured a detective, according to a police report.

A Natick teenager issued an "obscenity-laced tirade" against police, knocked a detective over and, once handcuffed, managed to take off his right sneaker and throw it at a police cruiser, according to a Somerville police report.

A 28-year-old Somerville woman, Ayesha Muhammad, of 28 Temple St., also pushed and yelled at officers, according to allegations in the report.

The detective who was knocked down received injuries to his back and elbows, the report says.

The incident happened Sept. 13 when police knocked on the door at 14 Otis St. to issue a felony arrest warrant for Omar Muhammed, according to the report.

The teen, who's  not named because he's a juvenile, answered the door and told the detective, "What the [expletive] do you want?" the report says.

When the detective asked if he could come in, the teen allegedly said, "[Expletive] you … you ain't coming in."

The detective saw a man in the home, thought to be Omar Muhammed, run toward the rear of the apartment, and police think he knocked out a screen and jumped through a window, according to details in the report.

Meanwhile, the teen pushed the detective onto the porch, and when the detective tried to handcuff him, the teen pushed him down, the report says.

Several officers worked to handcuff him as he "continued to spew anti-police sentiments from the top of his lungs," the report says.

Neighbors came out to see the commotion, and the teen allegedly "took off his right sneaker and threw it at a marked police cruiser."

After the alleged sneaker-throwing, Ayesha Muhammad allegedly made anti-police sentiments and shouted, "He didn't do anything … take those cuffs off," and she pushed the detective such that he nearly fell off the front stairs, according to allegations in the report.

The teen and Muhammad were both arrested and charged with assault and battery on a police officer, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.

Omar Muhammed, as of Sept. 13, was still at large, and police believe the disturbance was "a distraction to allow Omar Muhammed to escape," the report says.

Please remember that allegations contained in police reports do not indicate a conviction.

It is disgraceful how some of the officers from the Somerville PD will "jump" you in front of your family and wrongfully arrest you! None of these statements are true in fact they are all lies. But little did the officers know that while there were Three cops holding me down and another one (officer Duffy) brutally beating me with multiple punches, elbows and knees that the juvenile that they are doing this to has a therapist there watching the whole thing. On September 13th I encountered a terrorist. The terrorist was officer Duffy. He beat me and on top of that he left my family with the haunting images of there uncle,brother and to my mom her son being helplessly beaten by very people who claim to protect us. In the Somerville PD there is no justice there is no fair law in fact not even any protectors only uncover oppressor's!
