Wanted: Leo Myers

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — On March 13, 2013, police say a 42-year-old man was waiting to catch a bus at the PVTA terminal in Springfield.

But when Leo Myers arrived, police say catching the bus became the least of his worries.

“Mr. Myers saw the victim,” says Springfield Police Sgt. John Delaney. “They had a relationship — a personal history back and forth — and it wasn’t a good one.”

Police say what started as a war of words quickly turned into a fist fight.

“After the brief, violent scuffle, Myers walked away,” says Delaney. “The victim figured, he’s gone, we’re done with that.”

But the fight was far from over.

“Mr. Myers comes back with a screwdriver, takes the screwdriver and stabs the victim in the ear with it,” says Delaney.

The victim spent the next few days in the hospital. Meanwhile, Myers managed to slip away from the bus terminal before police arrived.

“He has a long history with the Springfield Police Dept — He’s a frequent flyer with us,” says Delaney. “We have him under arrest many times in Springfield for assault with a dangerous weapon, resisting arrest, disorderly person — so he’s a violent guy.”

Delaney adds, “If you know where he is, don’t approach him, call our detective bureau, we’ll do the rest.”

If you know Myers’ whereabouts, call the Springfield Police Department or text an anonymous tip to C-R-I-M-E-S.
