Incident Sparked by Alleged Two-Year-Old Drug Debt

Christopher J. Sacca, 28, of Arlington, was arrested Wednesday evening for breaking and entering, after an alleged incident at an Amsden Street residence that afternoon.

Sacca allegedly entered the residence at about 4:15 p.m. Wednesday through an unlocked basement door. He told police that a man who lives there has owed him $2,000 for more than two years.

Sacca said he only walked down a few steps to see if the man was home, when the man came home through the same door. The man told police that Sacca had seen him leave his residence to run a nearby errand. He said the money owed is a drug debt.

The man said that Sacca put him in a headlock and punched him in the chin twice before the two were separated and Sacca took off. However, later at the police station, Sacca said that the man was holding a “brown claw hammer” when he approached him on the basement steps. Sacca said he was only acting in self-defense.

Sacca had a text message from the man, where the man admitted to holding the hammer. Police are seeking a criminal complaint for assault and battery with a dangerous weapon against the man.
