LUNENBURG — A 25-year-old Fitchburg man arrested a short time ago in Fitchburg by state, Lunenburg, and Fitchburg police is headed to Leominster District Court to face a number of charges, including assault and battery on a police officer, stemming from an incident last night.

Police Sgt. Thomas Gammel and Police Officer Omar Connor learned last night that Kevin Baldwin was at Ixtapa Mexican Restaurant and Cantina on Massachusetts Avenue (Route 2A). The officers went there just before 10 p.m to arrest Mr. Baldwin on two outstanding warrants out of Worcester Central District Court.

They reportedly asked him to step outside the restaurant, and he did.

However, before police could arrest him, Mr. Baldwin allegedly took off on foot, according to Police Chief Daniel F. Bourgeois.

There is a 10-foot wall at the end of the parking lot, and Mr. Baldwin made it over the wall.

Officer Connor went over the wall too, but landed on his neck.

Sgt. Gammel was right behind, but the suspect got away on foot.

Officer Connor was taken by ambulance to Health Alliance Hospital — Leominster Campus in Leominster. He was subsequently transferred to UMass Memorial Medical Center — University Campus in Worcester for treatment of a serious neck injury.

“He's being re-evaluated today,” Chief Bourgeois said.“We believe he'll be OK.”

Mr. Baldwin was arrested on Mechanic Street this afternoon, and did not try to flee today.

In addition to assault and battery on a police officer, Mr. Baldwin was also charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.

“Lunenburg Police, Fitchburg detectives and the Mass State Police Warrant Apprehension Unit — I credit those people for their work today and the quick apprehension of the suspect,” Chief Bourgeois said.

some of you are so ignorant and should just keep your mouths shut. It was a serious injury not a joke. And shut the hell up with the racial profiling crap.
