FRAMINGHAM >> A Framingham man arrested by local police for the 38th time says his latest apprehension is based on lies.
The MetroWest Daily News (http://bit.ly/1TZot14) reported that Sean Pelfrey was held without bail pending a hearing to determine whether he's a danger to society at his arraignment Tuesday on charges stemming from two separate alleged assaults.
Police say he hit a man on the knee with a pipe on Sunday morning, and then threatened two people with a knife later that day. He was arrested Monday evening.
The 38-year-old Pelfrey's lawyer says one alleged victim "lacks credibility."
Pelfrey told the judge his accusers lied and he's being held "for something I didn't do." He's also been arrested at least nine times in neighboring Natick.
The dangerousness hearing was scheduled for Thursday.
