Man robbed at knifepoint in Roslindale by guy wearing 'Everett Casino' hoodie

A man reports being robbed of his wallet on Poplar Street near Heathcote Street around midnight.

In a post in the Roslindale Complaint Department, he reports that as he walked home from Washington Street after work early this morning, he noticed the guy trailing him starting around Florence Street.

He had originally tried to threaten me with his fists with no indication of a weapon...being larger than him I got him in a chokehold pretty quickly....but also being naive, I let him get back up on the condition he walk away and leave me alone...at which point he produced his knife! Lesson learned! Please be careful!

The victim described the guy as white, with a dark brown beard, 5'7" or 5'8" and 180 to 200 lbs, wearing a black hoodie with "Everett Casino" in white lettering, sky-blue jeans and tan work boots.

Apparel like that...

Apparel like that is usually given away at groundbreakings, topping-off ceremonies, etc. Might narrow it down. Is there any additional description? Project is still underway.

This assailant was very motivated. The victim had him in a headlock and then he pulls a knife after being let go. Who does that?

Drugs.
