At about 6:00 PM on Friday, February 12, 2016, officers from District A-1 (Downton) responded to a call for an armed robbery of a convenience store (Beacon Hill Variety) located at 8 Beacon Street on Beacon Hill.
On arrival, officers spoke to several individuals who stated that the suspect was last seen running into Emmet's Pub located at 6 Beacon Street, only a few doors down from the robbery. A search of the pub enabled officers to locate an individual sitting at the bar who matched the description of the suspect. Officers arrested Julian Ospina, 30 of Boston and charged him with Armed Robbery. Furthermore, it should be noted that the suspect was in possession of a backpack. A search of that backpack enabled officers to recover clothes worn by the suspect during the robbery.
