Police: Man Robbed at Knifepoint by Hynes Station
The victim fled after his attacker pulled out a finger length silver knife and swung it towards him.
As a man walked out of Tedeschi's on 150 Mass Ave. Friday at 8:35 a.m., someone grabbed his hands, hugged him toward his body, and began reaching into his pockets, according to a report from Boston Police.
The victim broke free, but his alledged attacker had stolen a pack of cigarettes. He reached for them and the attacker swung a fist at his head, but missed. His attacker then pulled out a finger length silver knife and swung that toward him, the victim said in the report. Scared, he fled and called police.
The suspect, Kevin Campbell of 37 Greenbriar St., Dorchester, was arrested after the victim spotted him in an alleyway and identified him to police, and charged with armed robbery. He is listed as homeless in the police report.
