DANA STREET ROBBERY ADDS TO STRING

Another armed robbery in the Centennial Avenue area added to a string of armed robberies in the area over the last several months – robberies that police believe are targeting Hispanic males.

Around 2:30 a.m. on Saturday morning, a man was walking to his home on Dana Street when he saw a white four-door car pull up and park on the street. Three black males got out and approached the man, brandishing a firearm and demanding his valuables.

After stealing his items, they fled.

Police said this week that the robberies are now believed to be targeting Hispanic men.

“It does look like they’re targeting Hispanic males, but we also want everyone in the area to be aware of their surroundings,” said Lt. Amy O’Hara. “Sometimes with the Hispanic population, they don’t come forward in reporting crime because of fears and maybe because of their immigration situation. We need them to call us and our concern is only to solve the crimes and not anything else.”

 

ASSAULTED IN OCEAN AVE ELEVATOR

A woman reported to Revere Police early on Sunday morning that a man had attempted to assault her, ripping her shirt off, in an elevator from the parking garage at 364 Ocean Ave.

The woman told police that around 2:40 a.m. she was getting into the elevator in the garage when she noticed a white Honda sedan with bright blue headlights. The man driving the vehicle got out and also got onto the elevator.

During the ride up, he allegedly ripped at her shirt and began to try to assault her.

The woman clamored for her cell phone and did accidentally call someone during the attack. She yelled for help into the phone and tried to make a commotion.

The man eventually stopped the elevator at the 9th floor and quickly exited.

After a search of the area, he was not located.

He was described as being a black male with dreadlocks down to his chin.

Police reminded people to be vigilant and trust their gut reactions.

“When something tells you a situation doesn’t seem right, pay attention to it,” said Lt. Amy O’Hara. “If someone seems suspicious and out of place, don’t ignore that gut feeling. Call the police.”

A Parkway man who has been driving around in an unregistered truck with a blinking yellow light in Beachmont was finally caught by Revere Police Tuesday, July 8.

Revere Police had spotted the man, whom they knew had an unregistered vehicle and a bevvy of other problems, on the weekend of July 4th.
