Peabody police arrested a Malden man Tuesday evening on charges of attempted murder and aggravated domestic assault and battery after a nurse at Lahey Clinic reported an assault on a woman who was admitted to the hospital.
Police received a call just after 7 p.m. on Tuesday from a nurse, reporting that a female victim was assaulted by her boyfriend earlier that day.
Police then took Joseph Mwangi Kaba, 27, of 22 Cottage Pl., Malden, into custody on the aforementioned charges. An initial arrest report in the police log was unclear on where Kaba was arrested, although it did first give his address as 6 Essex Pl. #2, in Peabody.
