Roxbury 13-Year-Old Arrested for Armed Robbery

Boston Police Officers responded to a report of “an Armed Robbery in progress” at 10:30 p.m. Thursday evening. Once on scene, police officers met with the victim who reported that six or seven men had tried to rob him of his bike. Once the group of young men surrounded him, the youngest of them, a 13 year old, allegedly demanded the bike and his wallet, while another boy pointed what was alleged to be a gun.

As the Boston Police Officers were speaking to the victim, the 13 year old old allegedly rode another bike near the area, where he was identified as one of the suspects. Although he gave several false names to police officers, his identity was eventually determined and it was also discovered that he several outstanding arrest warrants.

It is not clear whether any gun or weapons were recovered.

The 13 year old boy, whose name was not released due to his being a juvenile, was arraigned Friday morning in the Dorchester Division of the Boston Municipal Court on charges including Armed Robbery and Resisting Arrest.
