On Monday, August 1, 2016 at approximately 1:30 AM, Worcester Police responded to the area of Harrison and Water Streets for a report of a large crowd fighting. First arriving officers observed approximately 100 plus people fighting in the streets. Officers observed males with bats, bottles and knives fighting. Officers exiting their cruisers had bottles thrown at them. Due to the large crowd and the violence taking place officers called for additional officers to respond. The crowd was ignoring the officer’s orders to disperse. Officers deployed pepper spray but had no result. Given the extreme volatility of the incident officials in charge called for all available police officers city wide to respond to the area.
Officers believe that the large crowd had come from the Mambo Lounge located at 105 Water Street. A comedian from New York City had performed there last night with a large contingent from New York followed him to the lounge to see the performance. The fight involved many of the patrons from New York and several local gang members.
Officers at the scene observed a male hitting another male over the head with a baseball bat. Officers closed in on the male in an attempt to arrest him. The crowd surrounded the officers and pushed them away from the suspect. The suspect was able to break free and started to run away. Several officers gave chase. The crowd continued to impede. The male was eventually apprehended. The male violently resisted. The male attempted to spit at the officers but his face was held away. The male was taken to the ground. The male attempted to kick the officers but one officer was able to hold his ankles down. The male was identified as Jonah Pichardo, 31-years-ld of 2232 Homer Avenue, Bronx, NY. Mr. Pichardo was charged with Assault and Battery with a Dangerous Weapon and Resisting Arrest. The victim’s condition is unknown as he fled the scene prior to being interviewed by police.
Officers also observed a 17-year-old Juvenile male punch an unknown male victim in the face. The juvenile, a known local gang member, was placed under arrest and charged with Disorderly Conduct. The male that was punched fled the scene prior to being interviewed by police. At approximately 2:00 AM, police were informed that a 25-year-old male arrived at a nearby hospital suffering from multiple stab wounds; the male had non-life threatening injuries and was treated and released. The male is a known local gang member. At approximately 2:20 AM, a 20-year-old male was dropped off at a nearby hospital suffering from multiple stab wounds; he had emergency surgery and is expected to survive.
A short time after a 21-year-old male, a known local gang member, was spotted at the scene suffering from multiple stab wounds. Officers at the scene called for Worcester EMS and he was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment. His injuries are non-life threatening. A 26-year-old male arrived at a nearby hospital suffering from a chest injury after being hit with a baseball bat. The male has non-life threatening injuries.
Officers at the scene observed the store front window smashed out at Wycked Java located at 108 Water Street. It was reported to officers that someone was pushed into the window during the fight. Investigators interviewed most of the victims and have received little to no cooperation with regard to suspect information.

This is how we envision that fight going:
First things first – we saw a bunch of people in the comments section talking about how nice it is that these gangstas fought “old school” and didn’t shoot each other. That’s how you know your city has hit rock bottom – when it’s a moral victory that people got stabbed instead of getting shot.
Anyway, everyone involved in this is an animal. They can’t even really be considered human beings. They’ve completely rejected all aspects of civilized society and chosen to act no different than animals killing each other for survival on safari. That’s just a fact.
Given that fact I think it’s fair to say that the Worcester Police should just let them kill each other next time, and hospitals should refuse to admit anyone hurt during one of these donnybrooks. Ya know what most of the people who were probably hurt during this probably don’t pay for? Health insurance. But since health care has been deemed a “right,” (rights are free, they don’t cost money btw) it’s up to the taxpayers to make sure these winners get bandaged up, undergo surgery, and get prescriptions to valuable pain killers that they will immediately sell.
As for the cops, they should just let them be. Just to review what the cops had to deal with, here’s a quick list:
- they had bottles thrown at them
- the crowd refused to disperse, because ultimately none of these savages respect the authority of the police
- the crowd surrounded the police and pushed them as they attempted to save someone from getting beaten with a bat
- the waste of space they arrested violently resisted
- the savage attempted to spit at them
- the savage attempted to kick the police officers
- they managed not to shoot any of them
- no one cooperated or helped them out because that shit is mad wack yo!!
You wanna be a gangsta? Cool. Kill each other. No one in civilized society will miss you. Your homies will pour one out for you and you’ll end up on some t-shirts that will eventually end up in the back of a closet in a section 8 apartment on Vernon Hill. But the police won’t have to continue to resist the urge to shoot you all, which the general public would overwhelmingly support. But of course the cops can no longer get tough with these guys because professional asshole Hector Pineiro, whose son is also a piece of shit gangster, will sue the WPD and make another quick buck off some new scumbags.
Anyway, the real problem here is that Water Street has quickly gotten decimated by this. Ten years ago Water Street and the Canal District became the go to spot for normal people because Park Ave bars started getting shitty. But now there seems to be World Start Hip Hop tryouts every other weekend. And honestly, it’s all because of this one bar:
Mambo Drinks. That name alone is a magnet for dooshnozzles. I remember back in the good ol’ days when this place was a gay bar. Proving once again that gay people are the best thing that will ever happen to your property value. First of all, let’s check out the reviews for Mambo Drink on Facebook:
When the reviewers constantly feel the need to mention how good security is, that’s not a good sign. I can’t ever remember leaving the Blarney Stone or Union Tavern and saying, “security was really on point tonight – I’m gonna go write a review on Facebook.” The only people who write stuff like that are people who are used to going to clubs where people get stabbed.
Here’s some more things that aren’t good:
“No dress code.” You might as well put a sign outside that says, “wear Timberlands, gold chains, flat brimmed hats, and oversized t-shirts.”
Then there’s pictures like this:
If that’s the bartender, then you know exactly the crowd that Mambo is looking to attract.
And when this is these are outfits of choice with the ladies:
And the plus sized women are wearing skin tight cocktail dresses that they have no business wearing
Or when the guys in the pictures are wearing chains and acting like hardos while flashing some sort of bat signals
Or when this is what a promotional poster looks like
Those are all really, really bad signs. It almost guarantees that 100 person melees will break out, a bunch of people will get stabbed, and no one will cooperate with the police.
So yea, what the city needs to do if they’re serious about economic development is to filter the type of establishments that are allowed to open up in the Canal District. Because that’s the part of the city that clearly has the most promise, and allegedly is where they want all these imaginary 20 somethings who move to Worcester to go out at night. But no one is gonna be doing that if Worcester turns into the opening scene of Gangs of New York. The formula to clean up Water Street is simple – get rid of Mambo Drinks.
But of course that makes entirely too much sense. Plus it’s racist, because as you can see from the photographs, Turtleboy is once again picking on people who aren’t white:
This is apparently some sort of attempt at the English language. But she’s making a really strong point. In her opinion “gang guys” are usually “American,” and they come from “nowere.” Ya got that? Gangs literally come from a place called “nowere.” And there are fights on Water Street because these gangs, which are hanging outside of City Hall, outnumber the cops on Water Street. Because it’s not like the entire police force was called out to Water Street on Sunday night.
Oh yea, and most importantly, any attempt to blame this on Mambo Drinks is racist, because they’re the only “Latin one.” Don’t get me wrong, we looked through their Facebook page to find pictures of some white guys in Mambo in order to diversify our dooshnozzle lineup, but there just weren’t any there.
Oh well, Joe Petty and Ed Augustus can always just build another hotel, tell us all that Worcester is turning into the Emerald City, and the reality of every day life will magically go away. Rinse, repeat.
P.S. The fact that gangstas in the Bronx are making their way to Worcester is pretty troubling to say the least. This is what we found when we went to Jonah Pichardo’s Facebook page:
Clearly that person is not 31 years old, and more than likely that is his spawn. Glad to see he’s instilling values such as the $20 bill closeup and the bathroom selfie.
