• Market Basket employees chase, restrain co-worker's alleged assaulter

    Updated:

    BROCKTON, Mass. - Four Market Basket employees caught and held a man they say attempted to assault a co-worker with a knife Wednesday night, according to court documents. 

    Brockton Police say an armed robbery was reported in the parking lot of the Market Basket on Westgate Drive shortly before 10 p.m.

    Court records indicate Snyger Remaraes asked a 24-year-woman what time it was before he pulled out a knife and demanded money.

    She reportedly gave the 20-year-old man her phone and ran away, saying she didn't have any money.

    That's when police say two of her co-workers at the Market Basket chased after Remaraes in a car and returned to pick up two more employees after they spotted him.

    One of them called 911 as the four tracked down Remaraes and detained him until police could get to their location.

    The 24-year-old Brockton woman told police that the man asked for the time, which she gave him.

    Police arrived to find a 12-inch kitchen knife in a nearby snow bank, along with the victim's cell phone, according to court records. They then arrested Remaraes.

    Remares was charged with armed robbery and assault with a dangerous weapon. He was held on $2500 bail.
