Two Suspects ArrestedOn Sunday, May 10, 2009, at approximately 7:59pm, an officer was in the area of Walk Hill Street and Blue Hill Avenue when he observed a robbery in progress. The Officer notified Boston Police operations of his observations as he followed the fleeing suspects as they proceeded out of the area in a green mini-van. Back-up units arrived and officers attempted to stop the suspect vehicle. The suspects refused to stop and drove towards the officers, striking one of their vehicles. Officers fearing for their safety discharged their firearms at the suspects. The suspects were able to proceed on towards Colorado Street where they crashed their vehicle into a wooded area. The suspects exited their vehicle and fled on foot into the Mattahutt woods. Officers set up a perimeter of the area and conducted a search for the suspects. The suspects discarded articles of clothing and United States Currency within the woods while fleeing. Shortly thereafter, both suspects were located and placed into custody. A loaded firearm was located by a Boston Police canine within close proximity to the suspect’s crashed vehicle. Both suspects were identified by the victim at the local convenience store as the two individuals responsible for the armed robbery. Officers arrested Johnny Alexander Sanchez, 18, of Boston and Miguel Lopez, 42, of Boston on the charges of Armed Robbery While Masked, Assault & Battery by means of a Dangerous Weapon (car), Resisting Arrest and Unlawful Possession of a Firearm. The Boston Police Firearm Discharge Team is investigating this incident.
