Wanted: Freddy Arroyo Jr.

arroyo, freddySPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — If you recognize this mugshot, it’s probably because you’ve seen it before.

His name is Freddy Arroyo Jr. and he’s got quite the rap sheet with the Springfield Police Department.

“He has a history of violence, he’s been locked up for carrying a firearm — and over 100 adult arraignments,” says Springfield Police Sgt. John Delaney.

Several of those arraignments stem from an incident last Spring at a home on Humbert Street, where officers attempted to serve Arroyo a restraining order.

“As the officers approached him to give him a restraining order, the officers said you’re also under arrest, you’re going to have to come with us and real quickly he says, ‘I’m going to have to go get a coat in the house,’” says Delaney. “So in the process of doing that, he took his mother and put her in the way of the oncoming police officer to get away.”

Arroyo then took off out the back door, prompting an extensive foot chase with police.

“About a 10 minute foot chase ended up in the arrest of Arroyo,” says Delaney. “But he didn’t go quietly, he fought with the officers and they had to use their OC spray to take him into custody.”

In the time since his last arrest, police have issued several more warrants for Arroyo– almost all for harassing his girlfriends.

“Violation of restraining orders, threat to commit a crime, assault with a dangerous weapon,” says Delaney. “This is another warrant he has on him — he also has a warrant for a threat to commit a crime in violation of an abuse prevention order, so he has 8 outstanding warrants for him right now.”

Delaney adds, “Hopefully someone’s going to recognize Mr. Arroyo and give us a call and let us know where he is.”

If you see Freddy Arroyo Jr. call 9-1-1, or you can send police an anonymous tip.  Just text it to CRIMES or 2-7-4-6-3-7 and in the message type SOLVE and your tip.

    He did a good job of changing his appearance except for the 3 stooges bangs and haircut.

    100 adult arraignments and this scum was still walking the streets?? What is wrong with our judicial system? This POS is going to kill someone and if that’s the case it should be someone who had a hand in keeping this guy free. This is disgusting to say the least.

  • bagpip

    You know it just occurs to me they should be citing CONVICTION RATES not arraignments. Being arraigned does not mean you are guilty, or ever even went to trial.

  • chance68

    @baqpip.. A lot of offenses merely get wrist slaps. so, no trials or convictions. A lot of judges seem to think a stern talking to (what a joke) will curb further offenses. In any event.. the old 3 strike rule has gone out the window and we now have a potential murderer walking among us. This guy has proven over and over again he does not want to live in a lawful community.

      @chance000: You are STILL ASSUMING he was found guilty of those charges, and my guess a lot were dropped. When cops cite the number of arraignments VS the number of convictions, someone is trying to make you think “their way”. There is no proof he was ever found guilty once.

    @bagpip..
    Have you ever heard the expression “where there’s smoke there’s fire” ? You come off as a nice guy and I can’t believe you give this guy the benefit of the doubt with all those arraignments. You think people have been picking on this guy? If he was innocent do you think he should turn himself in ? This is a no brainer. As far as I’m concerned and I know.. I might be the one with no brains.. ;-)

      The question is Chance, then why not name his conviction rate? How many times in jail? Arrest records tell a lopsided story, making people in general (not this turd) appear guilty even if they are later cleared of all charges. One cop on a vendetta can do this, it doesn’t mean they are justified.

      Just because he has a long history of arrests does not mean he’s always guilty.

  • chance68

    Bagpip.. how long do you think it would take for someone to figure out that a cop or 2 or even 3 had a vendetta against this guy? This guy I’m betting had a slew of guilty things against him. Even if 60 or 70 were small misdemeanors not resulting in any incarceration but no way has this guy escaped some jail time. I got $50 that says he done time.

    • BrandNew2113

      Why is that? Cuz he’s Puerto Rican? Your an idiot. Seriously!

  • bagpip

    Chance, you are just another racist idiot talking threw your arse.

  • chance68

    @bagpip

    When did race enter into this scenario? You must have a guilty conscience . You’re just another cop hater until you need one. Crawl back under that porch you were living in and drink another 30 ouncer. Loser!!

    • bagpip

      Thank you for showing who the real idiot here is. Bye idiot.

  • bagpip

    Hey nutjob, take your idiotic, sick, insane blabber somewhere else. Also I hope the peoples whose names and numbers you printed here 1) beat the snot out of you, and 2) have your sick mind committed to where you can’t do any harm to anyone else. You now have a huge legal problem coming your way. Do you think you can slander and THREATEN people online? Guess what? You’ll be getting a visit today.

      To explain, this kook put up 2 posts of gibberish and threats, and by the time I replied it was removed. This is not aimed at anyone but him.
