Boston Police are looking for a man who got out of a black Charger on Salem Street shortly before 10 p.m., punched a woman, grabbed her purse, then jumped back in the car, which headed toward Charter Street.
I saw that North End attack happen tonight. Pretty scary. It took no more than 10 seconds. The woman was pretty roughed up.
That attack happened about 50 minutes after a woman walking down Burroughs Street, about midway between Centre and the Jamaicaway, was robbed by a man who pushed a sharp object into her neck hard enough to draw blood. The man, described as young, black and heavyset, ran toward the Jamaicaway.
