Boston Police report arresting two men last night for trying to rob a man on a moped - who was able to drive away even though one of the men had repeatedly stabbed his rear tire.
Police say the moped rider found himself approached by three guys looking for trouble around 10:15 p.m. outside 131 Tremont St., at Winter Street.
The victim stated that one of the males attempted to pull his arm and the keys from his moped, while a second male tried pushing him around. Then one of the males took a knife out and began to stab the rear tire of his moped. The victim stayed on his moped and was able to drive away and call 911.
Arriving officers found two of the men, one clad entirely in black, the other entirely in red, nearby:
The officers stopped the males, and as they were speaking with them, one of the males kept reaching into his front pants pockets and waist area, after multiple commands to show his hands. Upon conducting a pat frisk of the suspect, officers located a firearm in the front waistband area of the suspects pants. The firearm was a silver and black Zoraki 2918, containing one live round of ammunition and one round in the magazine.
The second individual continued to reach his hands into his front pants pocket, and became agitated at the officers when they began to pat frisk him. As a result of the pat frisk, officers recovered a folding knife from the suspects left front pocket.
