Three arrested for armed holdup in Dorchester after brief high-speed chase up Morrissey Boulevard

Boston Police report arresting a Dorchester man and teens from Dorchester and Revere on charges they held a man up at gunpoint on Bay Street yesterday afternoon.

Police say Cornel Bell, 20, and the two teens - 16 and 17 - decided to rob a man walking towards the Savin Hill T stop around 1:40 p.m. Two of the three got out of the Honda they were in, went up behind the man and took his wallet, before jumping back in the car.

Officers canvassed the area for the suspects to no avail.

As one responding officer made his way back toward the district station, he observed a vehicle fitting the above description occupied by 3 males. The officer followed the vehicle which was traveling at a high rate of speed and was finally able to conduct a stop in the area of Morrissey Blvd. and UMass Boston Road.

Officers immediately recognized the occupants due to prior interactions. The front seat passenger was positively identified as the suspect who robbed the victim, and after a search of the vehicle produced the victim’s wallet, all three suspects were placed into custody.

Innocent, etc.

It seems like the area around Savin Hil station has had several robberies and sexual assaults in the last few months. How safe is the station?

There were two robberies over the past three months,a fourth was reported but it actually took place at JFK. BPD have a great track record in making arrests. Alerts go out on the area Nextdoor site and the neighbors join in

Escaping a street robbery by jumping into a car; really how stupid can you get. Nice arrest though! Hope these three lowlifes can come up with some better new year resolution for 2016.
