The victims became frightened and were able to exit the station without turning over their possessions and provided responding officers with a detailed description. Transit Police officers conducted an area search and located Rodriguez in the 600 block of Parker Street where they recovered a replica firearm from his possession. Rodriguez was positively identified by the victims and placed into custody and transported to Transit Police HQ for the arrest booking process. Rodriguez stated to the arresting officers "I was only playing with them ".
Rodriguez will be arraigned sometime today for Attempted Armed Robbery in Roxbury District Court.
