TEWKSBURY – Police Chief Ryan Columbus reports that the Tewksbury Police Department arrested and charged an Everett man with numerous charges in connection with an incident on Monday night.
TOMMY MOGES, AGE 22, OF EVERETT, was arrested and charged with:
- Breaking and Entering for Misdemeanor
- Assault and Battery with a Dangerous Weapon
- Assault and Battery with a Dangerous Weapon on a Person Over 60
- Assault with a Dangerous Weapon on a Person Over 60
- Negligent Operation of a Motor Vehicle
- Leaving the Scene of a Property Damage Accident

On Monday, April 10, at about 7:25 p.m., Tewksbury Police responded to a report of a breaking and entering on River Road. A homeowner reported to police that an unknown male broke into his home and fled when confronted.
While still en route to the scene, officers were informed that a man in a black SUV was driving erratically in the area where the break-in occurred, and that the vehicle struck a woman in a yard nearby.
Upon further investigation, officers determined that after fleeing the home on River Road, a suspect later identified as MOGES got into a Honda CRV and attempted to run over a woman on Mount Joy Drive, driving through a yard in an attempt to strike her.
That woman was able to get out of the way of the Honda, which then continued driving through the yard and struck another woman in the leg.
The Honda struck a rock wall as it exited the yard and fled the area on Mount Joy Drive.
The woman who was struck was treated at the scene for her injuries.
Police were able to identify MOGES as the driver of the Honda, and sought help locating MOGES from Everett Police.
Everett Police located MOGES at his home in Everett and took him into custody.
MOGES was turned over to Tewksbury Police early Tuesday morning. He is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday in Lowell District Court.
“We are thankful that no one was seriously injured during this incident,” said Chief Columbus. “I am grateful for our officers who responded quickly, conducted a thorough investigation, and promptly made an arrest.”
