AYER — The Central Avenue scene of an early May stabbing was again visited by Ayer Police on the morning of June 30 following reports of another incident of violence at the same address.
Garrett Ojala, 26, of Townsend, was arrested June 30 and charged with disturbing the peace, though Ayer Police say the incident remains under investigation and further charges may be forthcoming. An alleged victim called police to respond to 110 Central Avenue at 4:05 a.m. that morning. Two adults and one teenaged juvenile reported being assaulted by Ojala, who’d fled the house.
Shortly after the police arrived, Ojala allegedly emerged from neighboring woods, saw the officers, and ran off through neighboring backyards. Ojala was apprehended a couple of homes away. None of the three victims were transported for medical treatment, instead opting to be treated for minor injuries on the scene.
It’s the same residence where, on May 9, Andrew Zagwyn, 23, of Oak Street, was arrested and charged with stabbing a man at the address. None of the suspects or victims were the same between the two incidents. Zagwyn was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and assault with intent to murder.
