Boston Police report a man was robbed and stabbed outside the city shelter at 112 Southampton St. around 6 p.m. on Monday.
Although officers observed several people loitering about the area of the scene, they did not assist the officers with a description of the suspect or any account of what had just occurred. District detectives were eventually able to provide officers with a description of the suspect, later identified as Catherine McGauley, 66, of Boston, who was last seen operating a motorized scooter. Investigators later learned that the suspect had stabbed the victim before stealing an undisclosed amount of cash before fleeing the area.
McGauley was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and armed robbery, police say, adding the victim's injuries are not considered life-threatening.
