Quincy police release footage of armed robber

Updated:

QUINCY, Mass. - Quincy police have released footage of a man believed to have followed and robbed a woman at knife point last week.

Just before 8:30 p.m. on August 2, police responded to Willet Street after a caller said a woman was screaming in their yard. When officers got there, the woman told them she left the Wollaston MBTA station and started walking toward Willet Street when she noticed a man following her. She said she got scared and ran up the stairs of a home to get help, but the man grabbed her, threw her to the ground, pointed a knife at her and stole her purse.

Quincy police have obtained video footage of the suspect, which shows him coming from Berlin Street, entering the Wollaston MBTA station and waiting on the Woodbine Street side of the station until passengers exit. Police say they don’t think the man was ever on the train.

Police are asking for help identifying and locating him. If you think you know who he is, you’re asked to call police at (617)745-5767. You can remain anonymous.
