Boston Police report arresting two 15-year-old alleged yeggs and their alleged 20-year-old wheelman after a robbery Thursday night in Jeffries Point.
According to police, Luis Alberto Ramirez, 20, of East Boston, drove his pubescent pals, both from Chelsea, into East Boston around 9:20 p.m., where one of them mugged a woman on Lamson Street, then jumped back on the car.
Police say the trio came to officers' attention because Ramirez was driving at a high rate of speed, with his lights off, when he turned from Everett Street onto Jeffries Street and almost crashed into their cruiser head on.
As they turned on their blue lights, the officers noticed Ramirez get out of the car and walk away; police say he told officers he was merely "going to get Chinese food." Police add the car had been reported stolen in Chelsea.
As they were chatting with Ramirez, police say, a dispatcher went on the radio to announce a mugging a couple blocks away on Lamson:
Officers on scene of Lamson Street spoke with a female victim who stated while walking down Lamson Street and talking on her cellphone, she was approached by a male suspect, who grabbed her phone, forcibly ripped it from her hand, then jumped into a vehicle and fled down Everett St towards Jeffries St. The victim described the suspect as a white male, (possibly Hispanic), 6'0", young, ponytail hair style, wearing a white shirt and black pants.
One of the two teens, too young to have his name released, was charged with being deliquent on account of unarmed robbery, assault and battery and receiving stolen goods. The other kid was charged as delinquent for receiving stolen property. Ramirez was likewise charged and also face a charge of operating without a license.
