This afternoon around 1:43PM, officers from District C-11 (Dorchester) responded to the intersection of Columbia Road and Dorchester Avenue/Blessed Mother Teresa Church for a carjacking. On arrival, officers learned that the suspect of the carjacking had committed a breaking and entering on Howes Street shortly before the carjacking and had been fleeing the scene when he committed the carjacking.
On arrival, officers spoke to the victim of the carjacking who reported that he was a driving a bridal party and had just arrived at the church when the suspect carjacked him. The victim described the suspect as a white, non-Hispanic male, about 40 years of age, 6’0” tall and 180 lbs with medium build. The victim further reported that the suspect opened the door to the car, threw two bags into the car and demanded that the victim “start driving!” The victim initially refused to do the suspect’s bidding and a struggle ensued. During this struggle the victim was punched several times and was eventually thrown out of the limousine. After forcing the victim/driver out of the car, the suspect went on to order several members of the bridal party who were in the back of the limousine out of the car.
The suspect then fled the scene with the limousine heading toward Edward Everett Square but not before striking a nearby US Postal car.
Officers later recovered the stolen limousine in the area of 31 West 5th Street in South Boston.
