Boston Police report they are looking for a guy who has now attacked two people and robbed them on South Huntington Avenue.

In both cases, one around 8:45 p.m. on Oct. 22 and one around 10:55 p.m. on Oct. 26, the suspect, described as black and between 5'10" and 6'2", "struck them about the head with either his clenched fist or an unidentified solid object before ripping the victim’s rear pants pocket in order to steal their wallet."

One of the victims was hurt seriously enough to require transportation to a local hospital, according to police.

Police did not specify where on South Huntington Avenue the attacks took place, but the video they released shows the suspect walking away from Huntington Avenue in front of the Serenity Apartments, 101 South Huntington Ave., on the Jamaicaway side of South Huntington, about a half block before Heath Street.

More like punching victims in the head and probably face to scare and startle them . Common behavior and this has been going on in JP for half a century. The closer you are yo the projects the greater the threat. I spent most of life growing blocks from Heath St.

And when someone finally gets the drop on this loser and defends themselves, the thief will claim to be a victim.

Just like all troublemakers do.

The video is a series of lectures about border line personality disorder. Should I be concerned ?
