Daily Dose of Great Police Work: Officers Make Sure "One Stop" is the Last Stop for Armed Robbery Suspect


At about 11:04 PM on Tuesday, February 13, 2018, officers from District D-4 (South End) responded to a radio call for an armed robbery at One Stop Convenience in the area of 664 Tremont Street. Upon arrival, officers were advised that an unknown male with a plaid scarf over his face entered the store, showed a knife, and demanded money from the register. The suspect then grabbed an undisclosed amount of money from the register and fled on foot on West Newton Street, with the store clerk in pursuit. Additional responding officers received a suspect description and canvassed the area for a possible perpetrator. The officers’ attention was soon drawn to a person fitting that description calling out from behind a fence. Officers apprehended the male, and he was identified as the suspect who robbed the store. Officers also recovered a plaid scarf next to the suspect where he was handcuffed, $225 in US currency on the suspect’s person, and a knife along the suspect’s flight path. Officers arrested the 17-year-old juvenile from Roxbury and charged him with Delinquent to wit; Armed Robbery and Delinquent to wit; Assault by Means of a Dangerous Weapon (Knife). Detectives are investigating the possibility that the suspect is responsible for several similar robberies in Cambridge.
