BOSTON — Officers from the Boston Police Department arrested three individuals early Sunday morning after responding to a loud party in Dorchester that escalated into a confrontation with law enforcement.

At about 4:15 a.m., on Sunday, officers assigned to District C-11 were called to the area of 4 Sumner Square for a report of a loud party.

Upon arrival, they found multiple vehicles parked on the sidewalk, obstructing potential emergency access.

The officers encountered a group of around 70 people and loud music emanating from a portable boombox.

When they attempted to disperse the crowd, Luca Delguado Santos, 20, of Mattapan, allegedly swung the speaker at an officer, striking him in the knee.

As officers subdued Santos, Stephanie Ilma, 24, also of Mattapan, reportedly became aggressive and punched several officers.

A struggle ensued before Ilma was handcuffed.

During her arrest, Santos allegedly jumped on the officers, leading to a second altercation before he was subdued.

Additionally, Miguel Martinez, 20, of Boston, allegedly incited the crowd during the arrests and refused to leave the area when ordered by the police, resulting in his arrest.

A subsequent search revealed that Ilma was carrying a taser in her purse.

Santos is facing charges including assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and resisting arrest.

Ilma’s charges include unlawful possession of a firearm (taser) and assault and battery on a police officer.

Martinez has been charged with disorderly conduct and interfering with a police officer.

All suspects are to be arraigned in Dorchester District Court.
