Daily Dose of Great Police Work: Four Suspects Under Arrest After Armed Robbery in Dorchester

Daily Dose of Great Police Work: At about 12:57 AM on Saturday December 29, 2018, officers assigned to District C-11 (Dorchester) arrested four suspects after responding to a call for an armed robbery in the area of 14 Trull Street in Dorchester. On arrival, officers located an adult male victim who stated that he had been robbed by four individuals, two armed with knives, who took his cellphone and tablet before fleeing the area in a vehicle. Additional responding officers soon located and stopped a vehicle matching the given description in the area of Adams Street and Winter Street. As the suspect vehicle was slowing to a stop, officers observed the front passenger side door open slightly as an object was discarded on the ground. The item was later recovered and determined to be the victim's tablet. Officers removed all four occupants from the vehicle and placed them in custody without incident after they were positively identified. Victor Torres, 41, of Dorchester, Angel Torres, 36, of Mattapan, John Santa, 29, of Dorchester and Sandro Rosa, 31, of Boston, will be charged with Armed Robbery in Dorchester District Court.
