Police Chief: No Arrests Likely In “Mob” Investigation

Google Street View

Don’t look for many arrests, if any, in the investigation into alleged mob activities following an attempted robbery last month in New Bedford’s West End.  Police Chief David Provencher tells WBSM News, its likely there will be no one charged in the investigation, because witnesses have not been cooperative.  An armed robber attempted to hold up the J&L Mini Mart on Maxfield Street last month, but when the store owner fought back, the robber ran from the store with the owner giving chase.

The store owner said his neighbors joined in the chase, and after apprehending the suspect, stripped him of his clothes and began to beat him.  The store owner said he had to jump on the suspect to save him from the angry crowd.  Police have been questioning neighborhood residents since the incident, but Chief Provencher says so far, police do not have enough evidence to charge anyone.
