3 Boston Men Arrested for Armed Robbery in Newton

Newton Police have arrested three Boston men on Massachusetts Violent Crimes Charges in connection with the alleged robbery of a man and woman in Newton Centre last week.

Enemias Eliseo Ardon Valdez, 26, and Juan Francisco Rodenzo, 33, both of Allston, along with Marlon Rodenzo, 20, of Jamaica Plain, were all charged with Armed Robbery and Assault & Battery.

According to the Middlesex County District Attorney’s Office, Newton Police officers were called to Cafe St. Petersburg in Newton Centre last Friday for a report that a man had been robbed at gunpoint. Newton Police allegedly located the three Boston men behind a liquor store on Beacon Street who allegedly matched the description.

All three men were arraigned in Newton District Court this week on Armed Robbery Charges, and were all held without bail pending a Dangerousness Hearing.

Armed Robbery in Massachusetts is punishable by imprisonment for any term of years up to life. In order to be convicted of armed robbery, the Commonwealth is required to prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, that the person:

  1. Was armed with a dangerous weapon;
  2. Applied actual force and violence to the victim or otherwise put him in fear by threatening words or conduct; and
  3. Took money or other property with the intent to steal it.
