Police charge three with violent January robbery
Cambridge Police Detectives arrested three men Monday on suspicion of committing a violent robbery on Western Avenue in Cambridge.
Ulises Matos, 18, Rashon Sheffield, 20, and Brian Torado, 19, all of Boston, were charged with armed robbery and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, said Dan Riviello, communications specialist for Cambridge police, in a press release.
A Cambridge man reported Jan. 20 that three men had robbed of his cell phone and wallet, hit him over the head with a bottle and fled. The glass cut deep, and he needed medical attention for the wound.
The Boston Police Fugitive Unit, State Police Violent Fugitive Apprehension Section, MBTA Transit Police and U.S. Marshals Service helped with the arrests.
“This is a prime example of what law enforcement agencies can do when they work together,” said Detective Daniel Marshall, of the Cambridge Police Department’s Major Crime Unit. “Through sharing information and working closely with one another to build a case, we were able … to remove these dangerous individuals from our city streets and bring closure to a crime victim.”
