First reported as a carjacking by 7News WHDH, Boston Police later followed up with an attempted robbery classification for an incident in Boston’s North End shortly after 11 pm on Monday night.
Two women were in a vehicle near the corner of Hanover and N. Bennet Streets after getting out of work when another car approached and blocked their vehicle as they tried to leave a parking spot. The suspect’s vehicle had no lights on.
One of the two suspects was masked and walked to the driver’s side of the victim’s vehicle, showing a syringe (or possibly a knife) while attempting to open the vehicle door. The victims sounded the car’s horn and the suspect ran back to other vehicle where they drove down N. Bennet Street.
Boston Police are canvassing the area as they continue to search for the suspects.
