Officers, realizing that the suspect had just been robbed immediately placed him in the cruiser to look for the suspects. The victim told officers that he was walking when he was approached from behind by two black males who stuck something in his back and took his money. Officers immediately broadcast the suspects’ description as they continue to drive around looking for the suspects.
As the officers were driving around, the suspect suddenly yelled to officers, “That’s them right there!” pointing to two individuals who were standing on the side of the street. Officers stopped the two individuals who the suspect positively identified as the ones who had robbed him, stating that one held something to his back while the other went through his pockets taking some loose change he had.
Officers detained the two individuals and discovered $3.70 in the pockets of the suspect who the victim said went through his pockets.

Gun Toting Suspect Arrested with Loaded Firearm
Last night around 11:36PM, officers from the Youth Violence Strike Force arrested suspect, Gregory Davis, 18, of Dorchester and charged him with Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Unlawful Possession of Ammunition, Trespassing and Carrying a Loaded Firearm.
Officers were in the area of Whitfield and Wheatland Streets when they observed two young males riding bicycles side by side. As officers neared the two, they observed one start pedaling away at a faster pace and as he did so noted that he took his hand from the handlebars and press it closely to his side as if supporting something in his waist.
Officers, having observed the suspect’s behavior believed they were in keeping with that of an armed individual. Officers attempted to pull up next to the suspect to further investigate when he suddenly took a right turn onto West Tremlett St, and went into the back yard of a house on Wheatland Street. Officers followed the suspect, and as they did so observed him drop his bicycle and jump over the fence. As officers exited their car to pursue the suspect, they saw him jump over the fence and heard what sounded like the sound of a metal object hitting the ground.
Officers broadcast the fact that the suspect had jumped the fence and he was stopped as he exited the yard to the front of Wheatland Street.
A search of the path that the suspect had taken after jumping off of his bike was retraced and officers located a loaded semi-automatic firearm. The semi was then placed under arrest and charged accordingly.
