Three men were about to siphon gas from a Ford Bronco yesterday when the owner's brother scared the fuel thieves away and chased them in his car, police said.
Stephen E. Kentel, 18, of New Hampshire, T.J. Hunt, 19, of Westborough, and Allen Bacon, 20, of Framingham, were arrested at 4:15 a.m., about an hour after the attempted theft and after they threatened the brother, police said.
Kenneth Terenzi told police he was sitting in his car in his driveway on Mayflower Road talking on his cell phone when he saw a car pull up next to his brother's Bronco, which was parked in front of the house, according to a police report filed by Officer Paul O'Connell.
The car's lights were off, and the three men got out of it, Terenzi told police. He said one man went into his brother's vehicle, while another opened the gas tank. O'Connell said he yelled, and the three men drove off, so Terenzi chased them.
Terenzi finally blocked the car on Florissant Road.
"One subject approached him (Terenzi) and pulled open his driver's door, and another subject was right behind him with a long, shiny chrome object in his hand," O'Connell wrote.
Terenzi drove off to avoid being attacked, but then continued to follow the men. He called the police and his brother.
Together, the brothers trapped the vehicle on Maynard Drive, a dead end, until police arrived, O'Connell said.
When police arrived, however, the three men ditched the car, and ran into the woods. The cops could not immediately find them.
The men did leave some leads. Kentel's wallet, including his driver's license, was left in the car, as well as paperwork with Bacon's name on it, police said.
The officers also found a baseball bat, another "shiny metal weapon", a hammer, a screwdriver, a gas can and a hose.
About an hour later, at 4:15 a.m., O'Connell found three men matching the description walking on Concord Street covered in dirt. Terenzi identified all three men and they were arrested.
Kentel, of 49 River Road, Canaan, N.H.; Hunt, of 23 Oak St., Westborough, and Bacon, of 2C Brackett Road, Framingham, were all charged with assault with a dangerous weapon and breaking and entering into a vehicle.
Bacon was ordered held on $1,500 bail, while Hunt was held on $500 bail at their Framingham District Court arraignments yesterday. Kentel was released on personal recognizance.
They are all due back in court on Aug. 26 for a pretrial conference.
