Update From BPD News:

Detectives from Area C-6 (South Boston) are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the above-pictured individual in relation to two separate incidents. The first was a sexual assault that occurred on September 29, 2022, at 2:46 PM at E Street and West 4th Street. The second was a robbery that occurred on October 4, 2022, around 8:35 PM at 506 E Sixth St in South Boston. The suspect is believed to be a Black male, about 20-30 years of age, wearing a dark-colored leather jacket and dark pants.

During the robbery, the suspect followed the victim from a convenience store at K St. & E 7th St. before approaching her from behind and attempting to grab her bag. He brandished a knife during the incident and punched the victim in the face before fleeing on foot toward H St.

Anyone with information on this individual is urged to contact Area C-6 detectives at 617-343-4742.

Community members wishing to assist this investigation anonymously can do so by calling 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.


The BPD encourages individuals to review the following safety tips with the understanding that, while these tips are designed to decrease and diminish the likelihood of an attack, no victim is ever to blame for the actions of an attacker.

  • Be aware of your surroundings, especially at night. Keep your head up. Make quick eye contact with those around you, and try to avoid poorly lit or isolated areas when possible.

  • When possible, walk with friends and people you know, especially late at night.

  • Avoid the distractions created when talking on a cell phone or listening to an iPod/similar device. Avoid wearing earbuds or headphones in both ears.

  • If you believe someone is following you, change direction, cross the street, seek a populated location and call 911.

  • Remember descriptive information about the person following you to report to the police.

  • If confronted, believe in your ability to fight back and defend yourself. Creating distance and yelling words like: “fire,” “help,” or “rape” are smart ways of drawing attention and alerting people that you need help.

  • Keep your car keys in your hand to use as a weapon to ward off an attack.

      As long as someone is foolish enough to pay 10x the amount I paid for mine, good luck to them.

    Violence begats violence. Tolerance & understanding is the pathway to peace. Oppression and lack of economic opportunity turn people toward crime. May we all find a way to peacefully co-exist. Diversity is the foundational underpinnings of a vibrant community.

    Time to reactivate the South Boston Marshalls. Anyone who thinks this crap can be excused, tolerated or explained away, needs to talk to people who lived in Boston from the late 60’s to around 2000. Track down some of the hard- working people who used to live in St. Kevins or St. Peters in Dorchester. There needs to be zero tolerance for this kind of crime, no matter what the circumstances of the offender. Since the Police aren’t allowed to do their jobs, and the courts won’t hold people accountable, a moderate dose of street justice should send the message and solve the problem.

      Those people you yearn for are old and dead…..the others sold out when the realtors offered them 300k. Southie is a mishmash of spoiled brat yuppies and leftovers who liked it here and decided to stay. The old days were great, but they arent coming back. zYou just hope these dingbats get their shir straight before they are eaten up by the likes of Malik, Jamaal, Jermaine and Tyrone.
