At Mauro’s in Southie
We all know it’s not easy to work with family but things got physical between two Southie tailors yesterday. According to the Boston Herald, Emilio Mauro, 71 and Giovanni Mauro, 66, co-owners of the legendary, hole in the wall, tailor shop on East Broadway, got into a little brawl over how their business is run. When push came to shove, Giovanni ended up in cuffs.
Boston police were called to the shop around 12:30 p.m. yesterday after Emilio Mauro called 911 to report, “My brother has a scissor in his hand. My brother spit in my face and I need medical attention.” Apparently they are no strangers to the BPD and have a “history of fighting with each other” and normally only work together on Saturday and Sunday.
Giovanni is due to be arraigned tomorrow in South Boston District Court.
