The Everett Police Department arrested Cosmo Curtatone early this past Tuesday morning of September 11th on assault and battery charges for allegedly beating his wife.

Mayor Joseph Curtatone’s brother, Cosmo, was also arrested in 2014 with charges of attempting to rape his wife.

The same victim, his wife, has reported instances of domestic violence with the Somerville Police Department for past years even before his 2014 arrest.

His wife in an interview this past summer told us that she was in fear of retaliation from the elected Curtatone siblings who posted bail for him as well as she told us that they have threatened her in the past with repercussion.

During his 2014 arrest, a Malden judge ordered Cosmo Curtatone, who was 43 at the time, that resided at 11 Prospect Hill Avenue in Somerville to be held without bail at a dangerousness hearing that took place in April 17th of that year. That same judge’s ruling was that Curtatone posed an ongoing danger to the victim.

With that arrest on April 8th, 2014, Cosmo Curtatone was charged with assault to rape, assault and battery and larceny of more than $250.

This story is still developing…

  1. So on this solemn day of rememberance, cosmo curtatone physically abuses his wife. What the Somerville News has printed is now documented. Shame on the Somerville PD for not having the guts to make an arrest when warranted earlier. Meanwhile they allowed domestic abuse to go on for years – I feel for his wife. She should have been helped when this came up earlier. The SPD, by lack of action, gave a silent nod to allowing domestic abuse to continue – imagine…. so much for women being encouraged to call the police for help, huh? Fingers crossed the curtaphony dynasty start falling like dominoes. And Somerville elects a mayor they can be proud of, who won’t be corrupt through and through, and who will put the city first, not special interests, his/her own purse strings, or self-promotion.
