Rep. Katherine Clark’s Daughter Is Charged in Police Assault
During a demonstration on Boston Common, the daughter of Katherine Clark, a Democrat who represents Massachusetts in the House of Representatives, was detained by police and then charged with assault after a police officer was hurt.
During a demonstration that took place on Boston Common on Saturday evening, the daughter of a United States Representative from Massachusetts named Katherine Clark was detained by police and eventually charged with assault when a police officer was hurt.
The Boston Police Department released a statement on its website stating that the 23-year-old was anticipated to be charged in Boston Municipal Court. In a tweet, House Democratic Whip Katherine Clark revealed that her daughter, Riley Dowell, had been detained by law enforcement.
Clark stated in the email, “I adore Riley, and this is a very difficult period in the cycle of joy and suffering that is parenthood.” “I love Riley,” “The judicial system will make a determination on this matter, and I have full faith in that procedure.”

Clark has openly discussed the concerns she has for her own nonbinary child in light of the hate that is directed toward transgender persons. The Parkman Bandstand Monument, which is located within the Boston Common, was the location where officers responded to a call from the public.
According to the police, they discovered a person who they recognized as Dowell, a resident of Melrose, defacing the monument with spray paint and slogans that were critical of the police. During the arrest, “a group of about 20 protesters began to surround officers while screaming profanities through megaphones on the public street,” according to the police, who added that “an officer was hit in the face and could be seen bleeding from the nose and mouth.” This caused traffic to come to a halt.
According to the police, Dowell was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon, destruction or injury of personal property, and damage of property by graffiti or tagging. All of these offenses include property damage.
Protests about the use of force were triggered by a fatal police shooting that occurred earlier this month in nearby Cambridge. Sayed Faisal, a student at the University of Massachusetts Boston who was 20 years old, was murdered by a bullet fired by a police officer in Cambridge.
He had advanced on policemen while brandishing what the police said was a kukri, which is a type of blade, and a less-than-lethal “sponge round” had been unsuccessful in stopping him, according to the police. Clark is now serving her sixth term in the House of Representatives and is the representative for the 5th Congressional District of the state.
