BPD Fugitive Unit Arrests Wanted Suspect After Ten-Month-Long, Multi-State Investigation


Earlier today, on Tuesday October 1, 2019, members of the Boston Police Fugitive Apprehension Unit, in a coordinated effort with the U.S. Marshals Service, Massachusetts State Police and the Brockton Police Department, located and arrested Hermano Joseph, 28, of Randolph, in the area of 17 Hamilton Street in Brockton, MA. At the time of his arrest, the suspect was wanted on numerous outstanding warrants sought out of Suffolk Superior Court on charges of Indecent Assault and Battery (3 Counts), Assault and Battery by Means of a Dangerous Weapon (3 Counts) and Threats stemming from an incident in 2013 as well as additional warrants for Armed Carjacking and Armed Robbery.

The arrest came as a result of collaborative investigation that began in December of 2018 when the suspect fled the state after being convicted in Suffolk Superior Court. Over the course of the past 10 months, members of the BPD Fugitive Unit tracked the suspect to locations in several states  before finally placing him in custody today in Brockton.

The suspect is expected to face arraignment in Brockton District Court.
