FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (AP) - A Framingham man arrested by local police for the 38th time says his latest apprehension is based on lies.

The MetroWest Daily News (https://bit.ly/1TZot14 ) reports 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.
