Teen With Machete Tasered By New Bedford Cops

It happened Wednesday night at around 11 on Brock Ave in New Bedford’s south end.  Gang Unit detectives were patrolling the area when they spotted a male teen walking in a weird manner.

When they approached the 16-year-old, he took off running and a large machete fell to the ground.   When he was being chased by police, the teen threw away another knife.  He continued to struggle after being tackled by detectives, so a taser was used to subdue him.

The teen is charged with disturbing the peace while armed, resisting arrest and with carrying a dangerous weapon.   His name has not been released because he is considered a juvenile.
