NEWBURY — A Beverly man arrested by more than 30 local and area police officers last November outside the Grove Street clam-processing plant where he worked is due back in Salem Superior Court next week for a dangerousness hearing.
Mark Rosen, 41, of 39 Beckford St., surrendered without incident on Nov. 14 after a North Eastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council SWAT team surrounded him. He was accused of viciously beating a local woman days earlier and was charged with attempted murder, threatening to commit a crime, and domestic assault and battery.
Those charges were dismissed at the district court level after he was indicted by a grand jury in February and arraigned at Salem Superior Court on March 18, according to Essex County District Attorney’s office spokeswoman Carrie Kimball-Monahan.
Kimball-Monahan said Rosen is being held at the Essex County House of Corrections in Middleton pending his next court appearance scheduled for April 10. A dangerousness hearing, also known as a 58A hearing, is to determine whether a defendant is considered too dangerous to the public to be released on bail.
Rosen’s arrest was the result of a carefully coordinated and planned operation. Because of the alleged use of a firearm, Newbury police sought and obtained a high-risk warrant for Rosen. That prompted Newbury police to call NEMLEC command and issue a request for a SWAT team. Half an hour later, the first of more than 30 police officers from as far away as Wakefield assembled inside a business parking lot off Kent Way.
Police had information that Rosen was leaving his job that night and would pick up his last paycheck at the facility. That gave the team an opportunity to visit the facility beforehand and deploy where necessary. When Rosen arrived, police ordered him to surrender, which he did without incident, according to local police.
NEMLEC, with headquarters in Wilmington, consists of 57 departments and 3,200 officers from across Middlesex and Essex County, including Salem, Danvers, Beverly, Amesbury and Rowley.
