Crime Files: Juan Martori


SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) —

 Juan Martori is known to Springfield Police as a dangerous guy with gang ties. Cops say he was at The Alumni Club last August with a group of friends when he spotted a girl he liked.

“He had high hopes of going out with this girl.  He asked her out several times, she turned him down said she had a boyfriend. One night she happened to be at the club with her boyfriend and Martori was there and took offense that she was with another guy,” said Springfield Police Sargent John Delaney.

That’s when trouble started.

“He went over to the dance floor and knocked him from behind, kicking him in the face several times.  Then in the middle of the fight, which wasn’t much of a fight because the boyfriend was on the floor, his gang of friends came over and started beating on him also,” explained Delaney.

Security finally broke it up and Martori took off, but not before police say he stole 2 i-phones from the victim’s pocket.

The victim spent three days in the hospital with a broken jaw, fractured skull and cranial bleeding.

Police say Juan Martori is a violent guy who needs to be taken off the streets. So keep your eyes open in case you cross paths with this wanted criminal.

Your tip could help land him behind bars.
