7/3/2015

On July 3, 2015, at approximately 0255 hours while assigned to the 541 Unit, I, Officer Daniel Lalli was dispatched to the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center for a report of an armed robbery that had occurred in Brookline. Upon my arrival I was met by Sgt. George Emanuel of BIDMC Public Safety who stated that two male subjects had arrived at the emergency room at approximately 0240 hours and stated that they were robbed at gun point near St. Paul and Dummer St. in Brookline.
I spoke with the first victim, XXXXX, who stated the following: at approximately 0215 hours he was skateboarding along with his friend XXXXX, in the area of St. Paul and Dummer St. They were skateboarding in the street when a dark colored sedan turned on to Dummer St. and they stopped skateboarding to let the car pass. The car came to a stop and two black males approximately 5'8"-6'0" got out of the car and both pointed guns at them. XXXXX was immediately hit in the face with a gun 2-3 times at which point he fell to the ground. At this point XXXXX was ordered to the ground. XXXXX stated that he did not see what the suspects were wearing but that they were concealing their faces with bandanas, one colored red and the other black. XXXXX stated that the guns used in the attack were silver, he was unsure on the type of gun but thought that they were pistols. XXXXX Apple Iphone4 (colored white with a black case), black wallet, and black backpack with a City Year logo was taken. XXXXX wallet contained a Rockland Trust Debit and ATM card, and no cash. As a result of the pistol strikes to the head XXXXX had cuts on his forehead. The backpack contained keys belonging to XXXXX. Photos of the injuries were taken by the 551 Sgt. Sutherland. XXXXX stated that the suspects fled in the dark colored sedan from Dummer St. to St. Paul and took a right towards Beacon St. After they gathered themselves, XXXXX and XXXXX flagged down a Taxi at 900 Commonwealth Ave. in front of the CVS and were driven to the Beth Israel. XXXXX provided the name of the Taxi Driver, XXXXX, but did not know which company the driver worked for.
 I then spoke with the second victim, XXXXX. XXXXX summary of the events matched that of XXXXX. XXXXX added that when the two man exited the vehicle he could see that the vehicle was occupied by three individuals in the backseat, but could not provide any type of a description. XXXXX stated that the two black males were both wearing hoodies, "skinny" jeans, hats, and one was wearing a red bandana and the other was wearing a black bandana. XXXXX stated that the vehicle that the suspects were driving was black. XXXXX was unsure about what the guns looked like but stated that he thought they were silver in color and both pistols. XXXXX stated that the suspects took his Iphone 4 (black with a cracked front screen), his Apple Iphone headphones, and his house keys. XXXXX was uninjured during the robbery. At approximately 0240 hours, Sgt. Sutherland was flagged down by a citizen, XXXXX, who stated that he had found a wallet at St. Paul and Browne St. It was later found to belong to XXXXX. The wallet was found with XXXXX ID and Credit Cards still inside the wallet. The wallet was handled by both Sgt. Sutherland and XXXXX. The wallet will be placed into evidence locker number 17 for possible finger prints. At approximately 0350 hours while on patrol the 544 Unit, Officer Healy, found a backpack matching the description of XXXXX stolen backpack at XX Summit Ave. on the road. The bag has a City Year logo and keys inside. The bag also contains a scale and approximately 15-20 empty Ziplock baggies. The backpack will be placed into evidence locker 18. Photos were taken of the backpack at XX Summit Ave. by Sgt. Sutherland. It should be noted that at 0323 Hours a BOLO from Cambridge came in through Brookline Dispatch for two separate armed robberies that had occurred within the 0253- 0323 hours. Cambridge gave out a description of two black males who showed a gun and left in a black sedan which may have been a Lincoln. At 0326 hours Boston Police sent out a message over BAPERN which stated that there were two armed robberies that occurred within 30-45 minutes of the transmission. One of the armed robberies occurred at XXX Beacon St. and the other at Highgate and Harrison St. The description of the suspects in both robberies were two black males wearing hoodies, approximately 5'7"-6'0." At XXX Beacon St. the victim was pistol whipped. In both robberies two guns were shown, one of the guns were black and the other was silver. Due to the similar descriptions of the suspects there is a possible connection.
The victims gave a general description of the area they were in which made us believe it is very likely that the armed robbery occurred on Dummer St. between Pleasant St. and St. Paul St. but this is not confirmed.
 
Sgt. Sutherland filed a video request form for Beacon St. from St. Paul St. to Summit Ave as this seems like a possible route that the suspects took.
