There is an outstanding warrant for his arrest after he cut off his GPS ankle monitor, police said.

The alleged assault took place on Royall Street in Medford on July 2.

Authorities previously charged Moncoeur with assault and battery and attempted kidnapping charges for an incident in which a woman reported that she suffered minor injuries after a man followed her, grabbed her, and struck her repeatedly.

After struggling with the suspect, the woman was able to fight him off and scream loudly, prompting him to take off down Royall Street toward College Avenue, according to police.

Medford police later identified Moncoeur as the suspect and arrested him at his residence on Powder House Boulevard.

Medford police urge anyone with any information related to Moncoeur’s location or this case to contact them at 781-391-6767.
