Police: Woman punches boyfriend for spending time with his wife

The arrest of a Marlborough woman Wednesday involved a love triangle gone bad, but with a twist, police said.

Instead of a wife finding her husband with a girlfriend, girlfriend Mariluz Rosa, 35, found her boyfriend with his wife and attacked him, police spokesman Lt. Paul Shastany said.

Police went to 932 Waverley St. at 4:33 p.m. after numerous 911 calls about a loud argument. Yelling and screaming could be heard in the background, the lieutenant said. When police got to the apartment, they found a bleeding man and two women engaged in an argument.

The victim, whom police did not name, said he was at home with his wife when his girlfriend, Rosa, showed up.

"When she saw his wife there, she went over and punched him in the face," said Shastany. "(Rosa) caught her boyfriend cheating and punched him in the mouth."

Rosa still had blood on her hand when she was arrested, he said.

"The victim made numerous requests to not arrest her," Shastany said.

Rosa, of 15 Dickinson Way, was charged with assault and battery.

She pleaded not guilty at her Framingham District Court arraignment yesterday and was released without bail. She is due back in court Jan. 14 for a pretrial conference.
