INVESTIGATING BRUTAL ROBBERY
Revere Police are actively working an investigation into a brutal daylight armed robbery of a couple strolling on Mountain Avenue last Saturday afternoon.
The victim told police he and his wife were walking on Mountain Avenue around 1:15 p.m. on Saturday when an Hispanic male approached them, pulled out a knife in excess of one-foot long and attempted to grab a necklace from the man’s neck. The necklace was worth thousands of dollars and the victim fought back.
A struggle ensued and the suspect was thrown to the ground. He regained himself, though, and attempted to snatch a necklace from the woman’s neck, but was also unsuccessful.
The suspect fled on foot in the presence of several witnesses and got into a motor vehicle that fled the scene. The motor vehicle had been reported stolen out of Malden.
The victim had minor injuries and was transported to the hospital for treatment.
Police are looking for suspects.
ARRESTED SHIRTLESS IN 7/11
Shirtless and in the back room of the 7/11 on Broadway, one man frantically looked for a jacket or shirt in order to perpetrate a disguise and make a getaway last Saturday night after wrecking a stolen car into a pole.
The strange situation began around 9:15 p.m. on Saturday when a man was unloading his groceries from his car, which was running. As he was doing that, he saw the suspect, who he knows. However, instead of a ‘hi’ or ‘hello,’ the suspect stole the car.
The car was next seen on Broadway and Vinal, where police observed it had gotten into an accident. Yet, there was no suspect in the car.
It was empty.
At the same time, police got a call for a panic alarm being tripped at the 7/11 on Broadway.
When they arrived, the manager was pointing covertly to a suspicious man who was without a shirt and disheveled, but was pretending as if everything was cool and collected.
He was arrested.
The shopkeeper told police that the man frantically entered the store with no shirt and sweaty and began to go into the back room to search for a jacket. He appeared to be trying to quickly change his appearance to throw off the description given to police.
Andrew Pucci, 22, of 604 Broadway, was charged with larceny of a motor vehicle, reckless operation of a motor vehicle, operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license, leaving the scene of property damage and larceny from a building.
PHONY CHECKS INVESTIGATED
The Boston Check Casher on Mahoney Circle has helped police to arrest one man who was running a phony check scam.
On Thursday, police were called to the casher for a man who was allegedly trying to cash a forged check.
The man had allegedly pulled the same scam a once before at the casher and the store still had the evidence from that incident. They recognized the man when he returned.
Howard Taylor, 49, of Gloucester, was charged with larceny by check over $250, draw and utter fraud check, forgery of check and attempting to commit a crime.

PUSHES OFFICER AT 2 A.M.
A Lynn woman who was allegedly pulling her shirt up for everyone in the IHOP to view was arrested early Saturday morning after pushing a police officer that tried to put a stop to the show.
Around 2:30 a.m., a police officer working a detail at the IHOP noted a woman who was lifting up her shirt in the restaurant.
The officer attempted to stop her and she pushed him back with two hands – elicited a big “OHHHH” from the late night crowd at the pancake house.
Delia Smajic, 43, of Lynn, was charged with disorderly conduct, assault and battery on a police officer and resisting arrest.
HELD WITHOUT BAIL
One Revere man was arrested for allegedly kicking his girlfriend in the stomach and breaking her foot on June 19 after allegedly having stolen her medication.
Police were called to Carmen Lane around 9:40 p.m. for a violent disturbance. The female victim said her long-time boyfriend had gotten in an argument with her when she accused him of taking her medication. After a verbal altercation started, the woman said she tried to leave to stay with her family.
However, he blocked her from leaving and followed her outside. Once outside, he allegedly kicked her twice in the stomach and once in the foot – severely injuring the foot. He threw her bag in the street and yelled, “Go ahead and call the police, they won’t do anything.”
The suspect was handcuffed after police sifted through the situation and he was arrested. He appeared to be intoxicated.
In the early morning hours, after being put in a cell, the suspect asked police what he was charged with. When learning he had been arrested for domestic assault, he told police he was going to kill the victim when he got out, triggering a number of new thresholds in the domestic violence laws.
