WOBURN – Middlesex County District Attorney Marian Ryan has announced that David McNulty, 31, of Framingham, was held without bail following a 58A dangerousness hearing in Framingham District Court. McNulty was arraigned yesterday on charges of strangulation, possession of ammunition without a license, possession of a large capacity firearm without a license, improper storage of a large capacity firearm, assault and battery, and assault and battery on a household or family member.
Judge Martine Caroll ordered the defendant held. The next scheduled hearing in this case is Tuesday, January 19, 2016.
“The defendant in this case allegedly attacked the victims and threatened the responding police officers,” said District Attorney Marian Ryan. “This was an extremely dangerous situation that thankfully was safely resolved.”
On Wednesday, December 16, at approximately 1:20 a.m., Framingham Police responded to a report of an unwanted intoxicated male on Walnut Street in Framingham. Upon arrival police found the defendant wearing a military-style vest. The defendant had allegedly kicked a victim in the stomach and closed a door on her hand and engaged in a verbal altercation before allegedly strangling another victim. When police arrived they were informed that the defendant had allegedly stated, after learning that the police had been summoned, that he planned on “going out in a blaze of glory,” and that he allegedly planned to use a gun on police.
The defendant allegedly stated the only weapon he possessed was a knife. When authorities searched the apartment they allegedly found a firearm under the defendant’s mattress and a bag containing ammunition.
These charges are allegations and the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
The prosecutor assigned to this case is Assistant District Attorney Susan Harris.
