Southborough Police announced that a Framingham resident is being charged with robbing a Southborough senior at his Carriage Hill Circle home. Carriage Hill is an upscale condo development for residents over 55 years old.
In yesterday afternoon’s press release, Chief Kenneth Paulhus shared that an “elderly” man was robbed and threatened in his own garage on Thursday afternoon:
On 1/2/20, at 4:56 p.m., Southborough Police Officers responded to Carriage Hill Circle to speak to an elderly resident who reported being robbed of his wallet and cell phone inside his garage when he returned home from an ATM withdrawal in Framingham.
The victim was confronted by a middle age balding male, who demanded his wallet and cell phone. The suspect made threatening remarks before removing the items from the victim’s pocket, and leaving in a vehicle. The victim was uninjured during the incident.
On 1/3/20, Detective Keith Nichols was able to quickly develop a suspect, working in cooperation with Sudbury Detective Michael Pope, and Framingham Detective Darren Crawford. Framingham patrol officers later located the possible suspect (identified as [a Framingham man]*), outside of O’Brien’s Liquor Store in Framingham. Detective Nichols responded and obtained further evidence, leading to the arrest of [the suspect]* on the following charges: 1) ROBBERY +60, UNARMED, 265/19/A. 2) A&B +60/DISABLED, 265/13K/F. 3) WITNESS, INTIMIDATE, 268/13B/A.
[The accused] was arraigned in Westborough District Court this morning. He was released on bail until his next court appearance on February 14th. The Department expects charges on a second suspect to be completed shortly.
Anyone having further information should contact Lt. Ryan Newell or Detective Keith Nichols at (508) 485-2147.
*The accused’s name was omitted under blog policy.
Updated (1/7/19 9:07 am): An initial press release misstated the time of burglary as 1/3/20 at 8:11 pm. A subsequent message from Chief Paulhus corrected the date and inserted the date that detectives “developed” a suspect.
Updated (1/8/19 12:58 pm): I removed a reference to the suspect’s last name that was accidentally still included.
‘Suspect’ is a former cambridge police officer. Nice job soboro officers!!
This is the second instance of revealing a suspect’s name in one of your posts – in violation of your own blog policy!
Again – Thank you for bringing to my attention. The inclusion of the last name in one paragraph was an accidental oversight. I fixed it.
I still don’t understand the point. This blog is the only place where the suspects name is eradicated. Why get upset over it being published, its published everywhere else….
