Three arrested after hate group posters are found in E. Boston

Three men were arrested on Friday night in an area of East Boston where racist flyers were recently posted. A similar flier was spotted at the corner of Gallivan Boulevard and Dorchester Avenue last weekend, according to Universal Hub.

The Boston Globe reported that officers apprehended the men in East Boston on Friday night as they patrolled an area where posters promoting the hate group Patriot Front were found earlier. Police say the men were wearing masks, had a spray can, and were “extremely uncooperative.”

Matthew Wolf, a 26-year-old Lowell resident, was charged with assault and battery on a police officer after allegedly slapping an officer’s hand away.

Christopher Hood, a 20-year-old Malden resident, and Tylar Larson, an 18-year-old from Rochester, New York, were charged with carrying a dangerous weapon. It wasn’t clear what the weapons were.

The men were arraigned Tuesday in East Boston District Court. It couldn’t be immediately determined if they had lawyers.
