A 29-year-old Quincy man was ordered held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing next week following at his arraignment Thursday on a number of charges, including sex trafficking and armed assault.
Robert Bozeman, a resident of 25 Buckley St. #3, pleaded not guilty at his arraignment in Quincy District Court on charges of human trafficking, assault with a deadly weapon, armed assault to murder, threats to commit a crime, possession of a firearm without an FID, discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a building, possession of ammunition without an FID, possession with intent to distribute a class B substance (cocaine), and possession of an electric stun gun without an FID.
Judge John Stapleton ordered Bozeman held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing Oct. 23.
Prosecutors said a woman, who identified herself as Bozeman’s girlfriend, told investigators Bozeman had trafficked her for sex in Boston more than 40 times. She also told investigators Bozeman had punched her in the face and fired a gun inside their apartment, according to prosecutors.
Bozeman was arrested early Thursday morning following a weeklong investigation. A SWAT and crisis negotiation team assisted in the arrest. Prosecutors said he had crack cocaine and a stun gun, which he did not have a license for, in his possession at the time of the arrest.
Bozeman’s attorney, John Stevens, said investigators were unable to find the weapon, and added that some of the witnesses had incentives to implicate his client.
Quincy police began investigating Bozeman Oct. 10 after a woman entered the police station to report a larceny.
