At about 8:53 PM on Sunday October 20, 2019, officers assigned to District E-18 (Hyde Park) responded to a radio call for an unknown disturbance in the area of 27 Business Terrace in Hyde Park. While on approach, the officers were informed by their dispatcher that the caller was still on the line, stating that there were several armed suspects inside the home attempting to rob the occupants and that they had tied up at least one adult male victim on scene. As the officers made entry, several victims began yelling that the suspects were making their escape through a rear door of the residence. The officers made their way to the rear of the building where they quickly located a male suspect, later identified as Larry Green, 38, of Dorchester, hiding underneath a staircase. The suspect was immediately placed in custody without incident. Officers located multiple victims on scene, including three males who had been restrained with zip ties. No injuries were reported and all parties refused medical attention.
Additional responding officers then conducted a search of the area after receiving detailed descriptions of the outstanding suspects. Officers soon observed and approached a second male suspect, later identified as Dejon Barnes, 19, of Worcester, standing in a nearby parking lot. The suspect was placed in custody without incident after being positively identified back at the crime scene.
Officers continued their investigation which led to the recovery of a Sig Sauer SP2022 handgun, a Taurus 709 handgun and a Taurus G2C handgun from inside the address as well as several zip ties, latex gloves and other evidence of the crime in the surrounding area.
Both suspects will appear in West Roxbury Court on multiple charges including Home Invasion, Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Carrying a Loaded Firearm and Assault by Means of a Dangerous Weapon.
At this time, detectives are continuing their efforts to identify any possible remaining suspects who may have been involved in this incident. This investigation remains ongoing.
