There were plenty of witnesses, with slightly varying stories, of an attack and robbery on Salem Street at 9:50 pm on Monday night. According to Officer Teddy Boyle, detectives are following up on accounts of a suspect jumping out of a car to grab a woman’s bag. The woman fought back and the suspect punched her before taking the bag and getting back in the car heading toward Charter Street. The car was reported as a black Charger (or Chrysler). Police say they do not have a license plate number, but detectives are looking at video in the area. The victim was not seriously hurt and discharged from Mass. General Hospital.
Update: A suspect has been arrested. See this updated post.
