    When?

    Any time frame for this? Was just there last night. Though I doubt I saw anything if it did happen last night, don't remember anything unusual.

    Happened this morning around 8am if I remember correctly. I recall Saugus dispatching the BOLO around that time.

    I'm hoping you would have noticed a 90 year old being beaten and carjacked.

    this is all too common. Only other elderly, impaired or folks who don't want trouble are going to call the police if they get a chance to confront this winner. Heinous crimes like these will get less press or severity from the courts than animal abuse or hate crime against some groups.
