TraynorA Roxbury man faces a variety of charges for an alleged attempt at robbing somebody in an ATM - somebody who happened to have a box cutter with which to defend himself.

According to the Suffolk County District Attorney's office, when police found Torin Traynor, 27, of Roxbury, on Calumet Street around 11 p.m. on March 21, he was bleeding from multiple cuts - and told them he'd just been robbed at a Citizens Bank ATM a couple blocks away on Tremont Street. EMTs were summoned to transport him to nearby Brigham and Women's Hospital.

But then, the DA's office says, police found another man, also in bad shape, at the nearby TGI Friday's, where he'd gone to seek help.
