A 56-year-old construction worker will head to court Wednesday to face charges of assaulting a co-worker who might have been intoxicated at a Boston job site in May, leaving the victim with a traumatic brain injury, according to prosecutors.
Kevin Medeiros of Berkeley will be arraigned in Suffolk Superior Court on charges of charges of aggravated assault and battery, witness intimidation, and tampering with evidence stemming from the alleged attack, District Attorney Daniel F. Conley’s office said in a statement.
The skirmish occurred at a work site at Copley Place, a vibrant commercial hub downtown that’s also home to a number of historic buildings.
“On the date of the assault, Medeiros was working as the nighttime site supervisor at a Copley Place construction site when he and another employee — who was showing signs of intoxication — became involved in a verbal altercation,” the statement said. “Medeiros allegedly punched the victim in the face, causing him to fall backward and strike his head on concrete.”
Medeiros and another co-worker, Jean Rock Beaulieu, 26, of Salem, N.H., allegedly moved “the unresponsive victim’s body and told another worker that he had slipped and fallen,” but security cameras told a different story, Conley’s office said.
“The victim remained in a coma for five days following the assault and suffered a fractured skull and facial bones, internal bleeding, and traumatic brain injury,” the release said.
Beaulieu will also be arraigned Wednesday on charges of accessory after the fact to aggravated assault and battery and witness intimidation, according to prosecutors.
