Boston Police report arresting women from Malden and East Boston outside the 7-Eleven on Tremont Street downtown early this morning after they allegedly wreaked havoc inside the store and then went outside to stomp a man unfortunate enough to ask them if they might have a smoke.
According to police, Audrina May Hebert, 18, and Brianna Romero, 21, both of Malden, and Jenna Gonzalez, 21, of East Boston, were asked to leave the store around 1 a.m. after allegedly just hanging out inside for an extended period of time - when not outside "fighting and harassing" passersby. Offended at being asked to leave, the three "returned to the store multiple times, throwing merchandise and assaulting [clerks and a random woman]," police say.
Once outside for good, they responded to a man's request for a cigarette by beating him to the ground and then continuing to punch and kick him - as one of them stole his phone - police say.
"Upon observing officers, the females eventually stopped their assault on the victim" - and one eventually owned up to taking his phone, police say.
The three were charged with two counts of assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon, unarmed robbery and disorderly conduct, police say, adding that Romero was also charged with possession of a Class B substance for the small plastic bag containing "a substance believed to be cocaine" found on her during booking.
