Revere Beach phone thief seemed resigned to being arrested, police say

Botelho

Transit Police report little trouble arresting a Boston man for a phone robbery at the Revere Beach Blue Line stop around 11 a.m. on Saturday.

Police say a bystander alerted an officer just leaving the station about what seemed to be a fight near the station entrance:

he officer, who had just left the station, immediately returned and observed a male, later identified as Edward Botelho, 38, of Boston. Botelho was holding a phone in his hand and stated to the officer "It's me you want". Immediately following Botelho was the victim, a 63 year old male, who informed the officer Botelho had just robbed him of his cellular telephone.

Botelho was charged with unarmed robbery, police say.

Innocent, etc.

Daniel Day Lewis auditioning for a role as Bill Shakespeare?

That is a reach. Open to other suggestions.

The Christian Bale from The Prestige, only if the beard was less pointy and the hair longer.
