SUNDERLAND, Mass.—Two brothers from Sunderland are facing attempted murder charges for allegedly attacking the town’s police chief with a knife during an attempt to break a third brother out of the station lockup.

Police say 22-year-old Stephen Jean-Babets was being held at the station on a traffic warrant in lieu of $270 bail.

Police allege his two older brothers, 26-year-old Kenneth Jean-Babets and 24-year-old Patrick Jean-Babets came to the station Monday armed with a knife and attacked Chief Jeffrey Gilbert. Both older brothers were subdued in the lobby by the chief and other officers using pepper spray.

Gilbert was checked out at the hospital for minor injuries, but later returned to work.

All three brothers are scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday. It was not clear if they had lawyers.

    Were they born stupid or bred that way? What an awesome job by the chief and his officers. They been watching too many hyped up movies and playing bad guy video games evidently. Throw the max at all three, the one in for traffic is just as guilty.

    These criminals are getting dumber by the day. Seriously they couldn't just pay the bond and get their brother out that way.

    Bump Robocop33.

    Kind of ironic that the brother in jail with the traffic warrant will likely be free before his half-wit siblings. Glad the chief is okay.
