Police: Gang unit nabs teen with loaded gun in Dorchester a week after he pistol whipped somebody in a robbery

Boston Police report arresting a 16-year-old they say was part of a pair who held up two other teens around at Brookford and Judson streets around 6 p.m. on May 1.

Police say the teen, too young to be named, and an accomplice met up with the other teens after arranging to buy something from one of the other teens.

Officers spoke to the victim’s friend who stated the victim had been messaging an individual on a mobile app in order to sell some property to him. The victim stated when they arrived at the designated location on Brookford Street, they were met by two males who briefly spoke about the items the victim was selling, before suddenly pulling out firearms and demanding the victims’ property. The suspects were able to successfully obtain the victims possessions but were unable to get their cellphones. The suspects again demanded the cell phones from the victim and his friend, and when they refused, the suspects threatened to shoot them before striking the victim multiple times with a firearm.

The victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment of facial injuries, police say.

Police say the gang unit tracked the kid down yesterday morning on Robin Hood Street, about five blocks from the robbery scene:

A search warrant of the suspect’s residence yielded the recovery of a loaded Glock 9mm firearm with an obliterated serial number and a black scooter.

He was charged with being delinquent for armed robbery, assault and battery with a firearm and unlawful possession of a firearm, police say.
