Most Wanted: Attempted murder of West Springfield man and armed assault in Worcester


WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Massachusetts State Police have added two men to their Most Wanted fugitives list, including one with connections to the Springfield area. 

According to State Police spokesman David Procopio, the two men being sought are 37-year-old Jesse Ouellet and 40-year-old Saeed Ali. They were added to the Most Wanted list on Thursday for attempted murders. 

Ali is wanted for attempted murder, aggravated assault and battery, and vehicular offenses for allegedly running down a man with a car on July 12. Procopio said evidence shows Ali was driving a car when, without warning, he intentionally struck a man related to his ex-girlfriend.  

This happened while the man was walking through a parking lot outside a Savers store on Memorial Avenue in West Springfield. After hitting the man, Ali allegedly backed over the victim and then went forward again and struck him a third time. 

The man suffered serious injuries including multiple bone fractures, severe lacerations, and broken teeth. A warrant for Ali’s arrest was obtained by the West Springfield Police Department following the incident.  

He is described as 6’ feet tall and weighs about 160 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. Ali has multiple tattoos on his back and right shoulder, including a large dragon. Procopio added that Ali has a lengthy criminal history including prior convictions for several assaults. He is known to have connections to the Greater Springfield area. 

The second wanted suspect, Ouellet is wanted for two counts of armed assault with intent to murder as well as for firearm offenses. State Police say the charges against him stem from evidence that Ouellet shot a man in the stomach outside the S&A Market on Ward Street in Worcester after an altercation on April 16. A bystander walking on the street was also struck by a stray bullet.  

Procopio said both victims survived their injuries. Ouellet is said to have left the area and Worcester Police have a warrant for his arrest. 

Ouellet is described as 5’5” feet and weighs about 150 pounds. He has brown hair and brown eyes with many tattoos including on both arms and his shoulders, stomach, and legs. 

Procopio said Ouellet should be considered armed and dangerous. 

If you see either suspects or have any information on their whereabouts, please call 911 or the Massachusetts State Police Most Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section at 1-(800) KAPTURE (1-800) 527-8873).
