Bad call

On Tuesday, July 10, at around 12:46 a.m., police responded to a radio call for an attempted robbery with a firearm at Massachusetts Avenue and Albany Street.

On arrival, officers spoke to the victim, who said a male suspect approached her as she was walking on Massachusetts Avenue between Albany Street and Harrison Avenue. The suspect brandished a black handgun and attempted to steal the cellphone from her hand. He then fled on foot down Massachusetts Avenue towards Albany Street.

Officers searched the area for the suspect to no avail, but later learned of a Boston University Medical Center surveillance video showing the suspect, which would be made available to police.


On Tuesday, July 10, at approximately 7:51 p.m., officers responded to Dartmouth and Boylston streets for a report of a fight in progress.

Upon arrival, the caller pointed out the suspect, who was standing next beside library wall, to police and said he had observed the suspect punch, kick and strangle the victim with his shirt. At this time, the caller said he pulled the suspect off the victim, fearing that the suspect would kill him.

Officers observed the unconscious victim and then spoke to the suspect, who denied harming the victim. When police placed the suspect under arrest for assault and battery, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (shod foot), assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (shirt) and tried to escort him to the cruiser, the suspect allegedly threatened to kill their families. The suspect was also discovered to have an active warrant out of Boston District Court for similar offenses.

The suspect was transported to District 4 headquarters, where police were unable to book him due to his violent behavior on the charges of assault and battery, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (shod foot), assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (shirt), assault and battery on a police officer and resisting arrest.

Paramedics treated the victim on the scene, but he declined transportation to the hospital against their advice.
