A landscaping worker was arrested after he refused to leave a job site at a private home in Hingham Thursday and allegedly assaulted two police officers with a rake, police said.
Nathaniel E. Murray, 31, of Randolph, is facing charges including three counts of assault and battery on a police officer, resisting arrest, and destruction of property, Hingham police said in a statement.
Officers were dispatched to a home on Thaxter Street on the report that an employee of a landscaping company was refusing to leave the property after the job had been completed, police said.
“The foreman told officers the employee refused to leave and continued to work despite being told several times the work they had been hired for was completed,” the statement said.
The officers attempted to speak with Murray but he allegedly became confrontational and attempted to hit them with a rake, police said.
