Default Pay your towing bill with Pinky

An interesting story brewing in Fall River

man loses Pinky in lieu of debt

In all the versions of the story the victim told the police, one fact remained unchanged: The man’s right pinky finger was missing and could not be found.
So while the victim insisted he was hurt in an accident, police on the scene proceeded to investigate a crime.
By nightfall they believed their suspicion was correct.
John Soares, 38, 998 Middle St., was arraigned Thursday, charged with mayhem and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon causing seriously bodily injury.
He is being held in custody on those charges, and on an outstanding 2011 case alleging he sold a stolen motorcycle.
The most recent case began at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday when a confidential informant called a police officer to report that a man was being held against his will at Columbia Towing, 163 Aberdeen St.
Five officers went to the business and entered the building as a team, according to the police report. They found five people in the office, including a 37-year-old Fall River man whose face was badly cut and bruised. He had a blood-soaked towel wrapped around his right hand.
When the man unwrapped the towel, police saw that his pinky finger had been cleanly cut away.
The victim’s cooperation ended there, police report. He insisted he lost his finger when a jack slipped while he was changing a tire, police report.
“This is still under investigation,” said Police Lt. Roger LaFleur. “This was definitely a deliberate act and not some sort of accident.”
Officers on the scene began the investigation and were joined by Detectives Larry Ferreira and Kelly Furtado. Police determined that Soares had been to Columbia Towing at the time the victim was hurt, and that the victim owed money to Soares.
Soares was taken into custody Wednesday night and charged early Thursday morning after interviews with detectives.
“They are still working on the case,” LaFleur said. “They are trying to determine exactly what happened and if anyone else was involved.”
Soares is scheduled to appear in court Monday for a pretrial hearing.
The case must be referred to a grand jury to determine if there is sufficient evidence to proceed to trial in Superior Court.
