Marshfield: Second man arrested, third suspect still sought, in violent home invasion

A second man was arrested Thursday morning and arraigned in connection with a Marshfield home invasion earlier this week.

Marshfield Police Chief Phil Tavares says 22-year-old John Dossantos-Texeira of 29 Florence St. Brockton was arrested at about 10 a.m. Thursday.

Dossantos-Teixeira was arraigned Thursday afternoon in Plymouth District Court on the same charges as 20-year-old Eddy Monteiro of Brockton, who was arrested earlier this week following an armed home invasion at 105 Acorn St. in Marshfield late Tuesday night. Both men are being charged with three counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, three counts of kidnapping, one count of home invasion and three charges of armed assault in a dwelling.

Police were called to the Acorn Street home at about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday where they found three men tied up inside.

At Thursday’s arraignment, the prosecutor said that Monteiro called the three victims and said he was bringing them money he owed them. Once he arrived, the four men decided to smoke marijuana. Then two unknown men, one later identified as Dossantos-Teixiera, walked in. One of the men had a black revolver and struck one of the victims. One victim was med-flighted to a Boston hospital.

The three victims were then ordered to the ground at gunpoint and their hands were bound. There was a struggle and the gun went off, but no one was hit.

Dossantos-Teixeira is being held without bail and Monteiro is being held on $100,000 cash bail.

Officers say they found an “elaborate” marijuana growing operation in the house, two pounds of marijuana and several thousand dollars cash.

Chief Tavares says they are still looking for the third suspect, and he has not received the condition of the victim at this time.

Dossantos-Teixeira is due back in court with his attorney, Joseph Krowski Jr., on Monday, January 28th.
