City Man Charged With Interfering With Police

TSM

Police say a New Bedford man is facing charges after yelling at a woman Monday night who was threatening to commit suicide by jumping from a Brock Avenue rooftop.

The man, 30 year old Josue Melendez Soto, was allegedly swearing at the woman and yelling at her to get down. Police say the yelling only appeared to get the woman more agitated.

Det. Capt. Steve Vicente says the man was warned to stop yelling and leave the area. He refused and was placed under arrest and charged with disorderly conduct.

A trained crisis negotiator, Sgt Frank Eccleston eventually escorted the woman off the roof. She was taken to St. Lukes Hospital for a medical evaluation.
