At about 8:03 PM on Friday, December 27, 2019, officers assigned to District B-3 (Mattapan), were approached by an individual who reported he was being robbed in the area of 1150 Blue Hill Avenue.  The victim further stated he was working for Uber driving four males in the area of Blue Hill Avenue and Woodrow Avenue.  While the Uber driver was transporting the four young men, the passenger, who was sitting in the front seat, started to feel the victim’s pockets asking him for money.  The driver informed the passengers that Uber drivers do not carry money while working. 

At that time, one of the young males told the driver to go to an ATM and withdraw money.  The driver continued driving when he observed a marked Boston Police cruiser.  As the driver approached the cruiser, the passengers started yelling at the Uber driver demanding him to turn off Blue Hill Avenue away from the police. The victim ignored his passengers demands and stopped to report the incident to the police. All four passengers exited the Uber and fled on foot in different directions.  Several units from District B-3 responded and located three out of the four passengers.    

The three juveniles, all from Boston, were placed under arrest and charged with Delinquent to wit: Attempted Unarmed Robbery. They are expected to be arraigned in Dorchester Juvenile District Court.
