Yesterday evening around 5:45PM, officers from District E-18 (Hyde Park) arrested suspect, Steven O. Humphrey, 24, of Mattapan charging him with outstanding warrants for Armed Robbery, Receiving Stolen Property, Conspiracy, and Operating after License Revocation. The suspect was listed on Boston’s “Most Wanted’ list.
Vigilant officers were on patrol in the area of River Street and Wood Ave. when they observed the suspect driving a car. Offices immediately recognized the suspect and turned around in order to conduct a traffic stop of the suspect. Officers reversed their direction and as they did so they observed the suspect pull into a gas station. The officers pulled into the gas station and as they neared the suspect, he took off running towards the back of the gas station and jumped over a fence. Officers pursued the suspect and eventually caught him behind a house on Wood Avenue.
The suspect will appear in West Roxbury District Court today to answer to the outstanding warrants.
