Boston police are searching for a three-man crew that robbed five convenience stores at gunpoint in the city between Nov. 2 and Nov. 7.
Witnesses described the suspects as three black men between the ages of 25 and 30 who wore hooded sweatshirts pulled over their heads and faces, latex gloves, ski masks, and bandanas, police said in a statement.
In addition, the men have a regular M.O.
“In each of the incidents, one suspect armed with a black firearm and two accomplices enter the store and demand money from registers and safes,” the statement said.
The robberies all occurred between 9:30 p.m. and 11 p.m., and the targeted stores included businesses on Fairmount Avenue and River Street in Hyde Park, South Street in Roslindale, Warren Street in Roxbury, and Belgrave Avenue in Roslindale, police said.
“The Boston Police Department is actively investigating the facts and circumstances surrounding these incidents,” the statement said. “Anyone with information is asked to contact the CrimeStoppers Tip Line at 1(800)494-TIPS or by texting the word ‘TIP’ to CRIME (27463). The Boston Police Department will stringently guard and protect the identities of all those who wish to help this investigation in an anonymous manner.”
