Boston Police report five street holdups in the Maverick area between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. since last Thursday.
In all of the cases, victims were approached by two or more men, who then relieved them of their cash and, if they have them, cell phones. In two cases, the robbers wore black and white bandanas; also in two cases, the robbers displayed handguns.
The most recent holdup was at 10:49 p.m. on Monday at Orleans Street. Two white, bandana-clad males, demanded the victim hand over her phone. The day before, at 1:20 a.m. at Gove and Paris streets, a man was ordered to hand over his phone by three black males.
