Three men were arrested after the incident, which took place in the middle of the afternoon.
An Arlington man allegedly set up a drug deal for about 3 p.m. Wednesday, April 3, near the corner of Broadway and Marathon Street. Santyor D. Ring Ador (pictured bottom right), 22, of Heath Road, told Arlington police that he had agreed to sell another man two baggies of heroin for $70. However, after he handed over the drugs, the man refused to pay and a fight broke out, he said. Ring Ador said that the man, later identified as 28-year-old Christopher J. Silveira (left), of Cambridge, and his brother, Jake T. Silveira (top right), a 21-year-old homeless man, pulled a knife on him during the fight, which continued toward Broadway and Cleveland Street.

The incident occurred Saturday evening.
Police responded to the corner of Mass. Ave. and Lake Street at about 5:16 p.m. Saturday to take a report from a bicyclist, who said he had been struck by a vehicle while attempting to cross Lake Street. The bicyclist said he was traveling east on Mass. Ave., toward Cambridge, and that while he was trying to cross Lake Street, the vehicle, also going east, signaled and then took a right turn from Mass.

He was not injured, and his bike did not sustain any damage, he said. He said he got into a “verbal exchange” with the driver over who had the right of way but the driver drove off before emergency …

The main sticking point at Tuesday's hearing was the number of travel lanes.
The Mass. Ave. Corridor Project once again took center stage Tuesday night, as hundreds of residents packed an at times raucous Town Hall Auditorium to voice their support or opposition for the project’s current design. By a rough count, about 50 residents, including Town Meeting members, spoke in favor of having the current design move forward to construction, while 15 spoke against during the more than three-hour hearing. The main sticking point was the number of travel lanes. The current design proposes three lanes, two eastbound lanes toward Cambridge and one westbound lane toward Arlington Center, from Pond Lane to the Cambridge city line. Supporters, many of whom were East Arlington parents of young children, said they’re OK moving …
