Massachusetts State Police Arrest Uber Driver for Indecent Assault and Battery


NORWOOD - July 5, 2016 - Shortly after 5 a.m. Saturday, July 2, State Police Communications received a 911 call from a person who said a family member – a 25-year-old woman – was reporting to her family and a friend that she was a passenger in an Uber vehicle and was being sexually assaulted and accosted by the driver while traveling from Methuen to Norwood. State Police immediately put out a BOLO (Be On the LookOut) alert for the driver’s vehicle, a brown 2007 Toyota Camry. State Police determined the victim’s destination in Norwood and rushed to that house, but missed the suspect, who had just dropped off the victim, by just a few minutes.


A subsequent investigation by troopers determined the following sequence of events: The victim told troopers that she had called the ride service from a friend’s house in Methuen shortly before 5 a.m. and requested that she be driven to another friend’s house in Norwood. The victim stated that when she was picked up, having never used an Uber vehicle before, she asked the driver where she should sit; he told her to sit in the front seat. The route the vehicle took was along Routes 93 and 95. Several minutes into the ride, the driver allegedly began asking the victim personal questions about relationships, and then repeatedly asked her to kiss him, which she continually refused to do. At one point during the ride the driver asked the victim to “friend request” him on the social media application SnapChat, and handed her his phone to do so.  


The  victim stated that after his unsuccessful requests to kiss her, the driver allegedly began touching her inappropriately and making obscene and sexually-themed statements, and at one point grabbed her arm and pulled it toward her body. Throughout the assault the victim turned her body away from the driver in an attempt to impede his ability to touch her. According to the victim, the assaultive and accosting behavior ceased several minutes before the driver dropped her off at her destination in Norwood; the driver immediately drove away. Moments later, troopers from the State Police Barracks in Foxboro arrived at that house, checked on the victim’s condition, and transported her to the Norwood Police Department.


Troopers from the Foxboro Barracks and State Police Troop H detectives interviewed the victim at the Norwood station. In addition to her description of the driver and his behavior, the victim was also able to provide information about him from the Uber confirmation she received when she booked the ride and from social media accounts belonging to the driver, which she had been able to see when he handed her his phone. The victim told troopers she was in fear for her safety throughout the prolonged incident.


Troopers identified the driver as JUNIOR CLARKE, 31, of Lawrence. Troopers responded to his residence Saturday but did not locate him there. Later on Saturday, troopers made contact with CLARKE, who agreed to meet them at the Andover Barracks. After advising CLARKE of his Miranda rights, and receiving his acknowledgement that he understood those rights, Trooper Michael Guerriero interviewed him. At the conclusion of the interview, Trooper Guerriero placed CLARKE under arrest for the following offenses: 1.) Indecent Assault and Battery on a Person 14 or Over; 2.) Assault and Battery; and 3.) Accosting/Annoying a Person of the Opposite Sex.


CLARKE was booked at the Andover Barracks; a bail clerk set a $40 bail fee, which CLARKE posted. Troopers determined, based on the locations of the alleged crimes during the ride, that the offenses occurred in Middlesex County. CLARKE is expected to be arraigned in Woburn District Court. At this point, we have been advised that that arraignment will be held on Thursday. Contributed.

June 30, 2016 —  The Hopkinton Police Department was more than a little pleased when Jim Merloni of New England Laborers Training Center pitched in for his organization to take over the lease for a new motorcycle cruiser to replace the 2009 year-model.  Laborer's, as it is known, has participated in past donations to the town, such as the metal benches for the VIP section of the marathon spectators' gallery, some as part of their PILOT program with the town. Educational and other non-profits benefit by being exempt from paying property taxes on their assets. Many are good neighbors and instead enter into PILOT (Payment In Lieu Of Taxes) agreements with municipalities where they reside. Below, Sgt. van Raalten pulls up on the motorcycle.

Ubiquitous Accidents

June 28, 2016 — Accidents seemed like they were everywhere, and all at once today, like the one above. The Jeep and a commercial vehicle not pictured, collided, ripping of a side mirror, some fine custom tool and accessory doors on the commercial vehicle. There was one arrest at one of the scenes of an individual charged with driving under the influence of drugs. See the commercial vehicle as well as the Jeep in the HopCam video below, moments after the collision. The Jeep continued on for another 550 feet or so before stopping with a flat tire. On the video, a responding motorcycle cruiser, lights and siren on, comes close to being struck by a motorist who decided not to wait in traffic, but make a U-turn instead (it appears in the distance on the video).

JUNE 28, 2016 Hopkinton, MA - The Hopkinton CC Charitable Foundation has awarded grants totaling $15,000 to two local non-profit organizations for its Spring 2016 grant distribution. Thanks to the success of the inaugural Spring Charity Golf Tournament, HCCCF is pleased to announce its support for The Natick Service Council and Daily Bread Food Pantry Homeless Teens Program in Milford.


Natick Service Council is an advocacy, referral, case management, and information center serving the most economically disadvantaged members of the community. They help clients meet basic needs for food, housing and access to health care, with the goal of promoting self-sufficiency. The grant support provided by HCCCF will help fund the Case Management program and all services available to families in need. Visit www.NatickServiceCouncil.org  to learn more about all services and programs available.


Daily Bread Food Pantry Homeless Teens Program serves approximately 60 homeless teens who attend Milford High School and Blackstone Valley Tech in Upton. These teens are the most vulnerable, with limited access and resources for basic, everyday needs. HCCCF’s grant will support the purchase of school supplies, clothing and warm weather gear for these teens. All assistance will be distributed directly by Daily Bread Food Pantry. Call Daily Bread at 508-478-4225 for more information.


“We are truly grateful to the support we received from so many this past May at our Charity Golf Tournament," states Dorothy Maruska, Director of Programs at HCCCF.


"This funding enables the Hopkinton CC Charitable Foundation to identify and support programs in our area who serve the most disadvantaged youth and families. We are honored to be able to lend a hand to these important nonprofit organizations.”


The additional funds raised over the spring will support the second year of a 3-year $10,000 commitment to the Mazie Mentoring Program in Framingham, $5,000 for the HCCCF Scholarship Program as well as the new Youth in Philanthropy program launching this fall.


The HCCCF has partnered with the Foundation for Metrowest to bring this leadership giving program to Hopkinton. This program will provide high school students the opportunity to learn all aspects of philanthropy and civic engagement. Students will distribute $10,000 in grants to local non-profits they have researched and chosen based on the learned grant making process.
