Two people face arraignment tomorrow on a charge of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon following an incident this afternoon outside the Cambridgeside Galleria.
Cambridge Police say Tiara Hunter, 23, of Dorchester, and Dominic Walker, 23, of Roxbury, stole about $1,200 worth of merchandise from a store in the mall shortly before 5:30 p.m.
Detail officers in the mall attempted to stop them, but the suspects ran from the area, entered a parked white KIA operated by Walker and then attempted to drive in the direction of a responding officer. The vehicle’s driver side mirror ultimately did make contact with an officer’s arm. The vehicle then fled onto First Street and then Hurley Street at a high rate of speed.
Police say the pair abandoned the car near Webster Avenue. Officers found and detained Hunter on Bristol Street.
Walker was later taken into custody at Webster Avenue after hopping over several fences and backyards.
