A Framingham woman set to go to trial next week on cocaine dealing charges was arrested again Saturday after police said she attacked her ex-boyfriend's wife.
Maria Reyes, 25, was released without bail Monday after attacking the woman, and then threatening the man with a knife, according to Framingham District Court records.
On Saturday, police went to 19 Carlson Road for a report of a woman with a knife at 11:25 p.m., police spokesman Lt. Paul Shastany said.
Reyes' ex-boyfriend, who police did not name, said he was asleep at about 10 p.m. when he heard a loud noise.
"He woke up and found Maria Reyes arguing with his wife," said Shastany. "Maria then got physical and started punching the wife in the face several times."
The wife, who is 44, was also not named by police.
The husband forced Reyes out of the house, but she vowed to return, Shastany said.
"A little while later, the man said his children came running into the house and said 'Don't go out there, Maria is waiting for you'," the lieutenant said.
The man looked outside and saw Reyes waving a knife and screaming. He called police, and when they arrived she dropped the knife.
The victim said he and his wife had temporarily split, and during that time, he dated Reyes, Shastany said.
However, when the man decided to get back with his wife, it did not sit well with Reyes.
"He said Maria had continually harassed him about getting back with his wife," said Shastany. "She went to the apartment to tell his wife about the affair."
Reyes, who is homeless, was arrested and charged with assault with a dangerous weapon and assault and battery.
Reyes and Kevin Bynum, 33, are scheduled to be tried Tuesday in Middlesex Superior Court.
They were arrested on Oct. 10, 2007, when Framingham Police said they sold them $300 worth of crack in an undercover investigation.
Reyes and Bynum are both charged with possession of cocaine with intent to distribute, having drugs near a school, possession of cocaine and conspiracy to violate state drug laws.
Reyes is due back in Framingham District Court on the newest charges on Sept. 24.
