Boston Police are looking for two suspects after one of them allegedly bit a woman before taking off with her cell phone and wallet on Tuesday afternoon.
The victim, a woman in her 20s, told police she was walking on Green Street near High Street in Charlestown at around 1:10 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 19 when she was approached by two men who asked her for a cigarette. The woman was about to give the man a cigarette when he reportedly grabbed her cell phone, wallet and a Walgreens bag from her hands, then bit her left arm.
A second suspect then yelled "Just grab the cell phone!," according to reports.
"A witness in the area attempted to grab the suspects to no avail. Both suspects fled the area on foot," according to Boston Police. "Officers observed what appeared to be a bite mark and scratches on the victim’s left arm."
The two suspects were both described as white males, about 5'5", with a thin build. One man was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and jeans, and the other had dark hair and was wearing a red hooded sweatshirt and baggy jeans, according to police reports.
