This morning, the Medford Police Department executed an arrest warrant at 278 Powder House Boulevard in Somerville where they took Nature Moncoeur, age 18, into custody.

Mr. Moncoeur is being charged with Assault and Battery and Attempted Kidnapping after an assault of a female that took place on Royall Street in Medford on Sunday, July 3, 2023, at approximately 10:45pm.
