MURDER USA: Claude the Ripper?
strangled the victim and
threatened to kill her.
WALDORF, MD. – Has Claude the Ripper simply been warming up in several incidents which had led him to appear before a Judge?
Charles County Sheriff Troy Berry reports that a man who allegedly was choking the life out of a victim was surprised by a roommate and the victim was able to break loose.
Police say that on January 9, 2018, at approximately 8:40 p.m., officers responded to Washington Avenue in La Plata for the report of an assault which had occurred earlier in the evening. Police say that their investigation revealed at approximately 6:30 p.m. in the 3000 block of Palmer Place in Waldorf, a male suspect strangled the victim and threatened to kill her. The incident was interrupted by a roommate returning home. The victim was able to force the suspect off of her and fled the residence.
The suspect also fled but was identified as Claude John Boushey Jr., 25, of 3014 Palmer Place, Apt. F, Waldorf, Md.
A warrant was issued for Boushey’s arrest, charging him with attempted second-degree murder, first-degree assault, second-degree assault, and reckless endangerment.
Officers in the Domestic Violence Unit located the suspect and served the warrant. PFC B. Rash investigated.
After being arrested by Officer Rash, Boushey was jailed on Jan. 16, 2018 and then released on his own recognizance. Court records show that once again local criminal defense attorneys will not be able to claim him as a client as he has filed for a free taxpayer-provided public defender.
A protective order in a Domestic Violence case was filed against Boushey on Nov. 7, 2017, in Charles County District Court and the order was marked dismissed on Nov. 14, 2017.
Community service was ordered in a case of malicious property destruction filed against Boushey for an incident that took place on Dec. 20, 2014. In a plea deal with Charles County States Attorney Anthony Covington, the charges were put on the Stet Docket.
Another petition for domestic violence was issued on Jan. 24, 2011.
