Chinatown bank robbed

Cathay Bank, 621 Washington St., around 10:40 a.m. by a very heavyset, short white man, about 50, wearing a red hat, glasses and gray clothes.

UPDATE: Police report arresting Steven Lahti, 40, of Worcester, not long after about a block away on Boylston Street.

Red hat in a grey suit? Is CPAC in town?

the Citizens Bank on Avenue De Lafayette has been robbed twice so far (maybe more) this year.

Avenue De Lafayette is a strange little street. It seems to exist in it's own universe. I can see how someone might think they could rob a bank there and make a hasty getaway in any number of directions. I'm trying to remember what the name of that street was before they built the Lafayette (now the Hyatt) Hotel and the ill fated Lafayette Mall.

What was Exeter Place, is now part of Avenue de Lafayette.

do so many criminals seem to get apprehended near the CVS in Copley Square? I feel like this happens a lot.

I know CVS's prices are ridiculously high, but I'd never think, "Hey I just knocked over a bank, Gold Emblem candy shopping spree!!"

Was arrested less than a block away on Boylston Street, BPD reports. I thought he'd made it to Copley because the original report was from an officer who'd stopped him at "the CVS on Boylston," which I incorrectly assumed meant the one in Copley, not the one that's actually right near the bank, but on Washington.
