Man charged with gunpoint robberies of Mattapan Square Burger King, market

Boston Police report arresting a man they say robbed a Burger King on Cummins Highway in Mattapan Square at gunpoint yesterday afternoon and then, a couple hours later, robbed the D&K market a block away on Blue Hill Avenue.

Police say Willie Beck-Dacres, 30, of Mattapan, walked into the Burger King around 5:30 p.m. "brandished a firearm, and threatened to shoot staff if they did not give him money" and made off with some cash, which he decided was not enough, so he walked into the market around 7:20 p.m. and again pulled out a gun and demanded money.

And then, police say, apparently sated, Beck-Dacres hung around Mattapan Square, where, officers, armed with stills from surveillance cameras at both locations, soon spotted him and arrested him on two counts of armed robbery.

Innocent, etc.
