PLYMPTON – Shane Patrick Sullivan, 25, of Boston, continues to be held at Bridgewater State Hospital, now under a suicide watch, after a Plymouth District Court judge ordered him evaluated following charges that he allegedly attempted a home invasion on Brook Street, Plympton, Sunday, March 6, according to court documents.
Sullivan, whose arraignment was twice delayed directly following the alleged crime, was last to be arraigned Monday, March 28, but that was postponed at the request of the hospital, which is a secure mental health facility located at the Bridgewater Correctional Complex in Bridgewater.
The fourth attempt to arraign Sullivan will occur on Thursday, April 14 at 9 a.m. at the Plymouth District Court, 52 Obery St., Plymouth. He will remain in the custody of Bridgewater State Hospital until that date.
The hospital is conducting a forensic evaluation to determine Sullivan’s competency to stand trial and his criminal responsibility (known as a 15B evaluation).
Sullivan made headlines recently for allegedly leaving the Brook Retreat, a “sober-living” facility located at 55 Brook St., and attempting to break into a neighboring home on Brook Street with an icepick.
He is well known to police, law-enforcement officials have said, and court documents indicate a lengthy criminal record.
Sullivan was located when the victims called the Plympton Police, and according to the police narrative, he was making bizarre statements and was barefoot when found.
Sullivan told paramedics, who told police, that he had ingested drugs, although the veracity of the statement is not clear due to his behavior at the time police took him into custody and medical privacy laws.
Sullivan is charged with felony vandalizing property, felony home invasion, misdemeanor disturbing the peace and misdemeanor resisting arrest.
