When the officer approached the tearful victim to ask if anything was wrong, she indicated that she was alright. About 15 minutes after this interaction, the defendant was captured on a surveillance video dropping the victim off at the Boston Medical Center. When police detectives spoke with Gonzalez, he allegedly denied seeing the victim injured.
Detectives then went to the area of Washington Street where the officer had seen the victim and defendant earlier. Investigators found a trail of blood, a blood-stained foldout knife, and the victim's severed pinky finger on the street.
The suspect, described as a stocky Hispanic man, showed a knife handle and threatened to stab the victim unless cash was handed over quickly.
