Sentinel and Enterprise: A local panhandler and another man were arrested Thursday afternoon after allegedly threatening each other with knives during an argument outside the Main Street U.S. Post Office, according to a police department spokesman. Terence McKenna-Rowell, 33, of Leominster and Christopher L. Palvio, 29, of 63 Green St. were both arrested on charges of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and disorderly conduct just before 1 p.m., said police Lt. Michael Ciccolini.
In their separate accounts of the events, both men offered descriptions of the knives they had been threatened with that matched the knives each man had been carrying. Ciccolini said officers responded to the call of two men fighting outside the Post Office and found McKenna-Rowell and Palvio arguing outside the building when they arrived. When police arrived, Palvio fled on a bicycle up Main Street toward the nearby Mobil gas station; McKenna-Rowell told police that Palvio had threatened him with a knife, Ciccolini said.
According to the police narrative of the incident, Palvio told officers that he had asked McKenna-Rowell for money and that McKenna-Rowell became upset and accused him of tearing up his tent in the woods and destroying some of his property. McKenna-Rowell claimed that Palvio had come up to him while he was standing outside the post office and began arguing about money and telling him to get a job, according to the narrative. During the argument, McKenna-Rowell claimed that Palvio had threatened him with the blue-handled knife, Ciccolini said.
A notable panhandler in the Leominster area, McKenna-Rowell has already been banned from The Mall at Whitney Field and surrounding Gagne properties, as well as Wyman’s Liquor Mart, Rye & Thyme, Columbia Taver, Papa Gino’s on Commercial Road, Market Basket on Sack Boulevard, WaterTower Plaza, Applebee’s on North Main Street, and the CVS Pharmacies located on Nelson and Central streets.
Good ol’ Leominster. Where two panhandlers start a knife fight on Main Street in broad daylight over a dispute about one guy’s tent and it ends with a high speed bicycle chase. You know you’re a professional dooshnozzle when the newspaper refers to you as “a notable panhandler.” But this guy really might be the biggest asshole of all time. He’s basically banned from the entire city of Leominster, has been offered a job by the Mayor and turned it down, and is well known to aggressively harass women who don’t give him money. You’ve obviously hit rock bottom when this guy is telling you to get a job:
Ever since we started shaming people who give money to panhandlers we’ve seen a lot of whining in the comments from people who think it’s fucked up that we’re embarrassing people who are just trying to help. But what don’t you dolts understand about this? People like Terence McKenna-Rowell would not be bothering people and getting in knife fights on Main Street if idiots didn’t give them money. The junkies are who they are, but they wouldn’t be standing there if people didn’t give them money. This is why we shame the enablers. If you like knife fights on Main Street then keep whining about how we’re being mean. If you don’t then keep sending us pictures every time you see someone in a car giving these people drug money.
