Happened around 9:20 p.m. on Tuesday on Conway Street. One Conway Street resident reports:
I heard a woman screaming, and yelling to call police, so I called 911. I didn't see it happen, but I did look out my window to see the mugger running up Conway Street, around the corner, towards Fairview. Police showed up pretty quickly, and did a thorough search of the whole area and talked to some folks who were out on the street.
Another resident reports:
People have chase. Whole neighborhood was out. Police ended up grabbing someone later. Hope it was the guy.
Last Thursday, another woman was robbed at knifepoint in the Citizens Bank parking lot on the other side of the commuter-rail station.
UPDATE: Boston Police report arresting a 14-year-old from Dorchester.
The victim stated that the suspect grabbed her from behind and demanded the victim give him her belongings all while brandishing a knife. A brief struggle ensued in which the suspect swung the orange handled knife at the victim and successfully stole the victim’s black Prada briefcase. The suspect then fled the scene in the direction of Fairview St. A short time later, officers observed an individual matching the description of the suspect in the area of Birch Street and Belgrade Avenue. The suspect was positively identified and officers were able to recover a knife from the suspect. Upon further investigation, one of the officers was able to recover the victim’s missing credit cards found in the space between the suspect’s cell phone and cell phone case.
