DARTMOUTH — Three people are under arrest after an alleged armed robbery and then returning to the scene of the crime.

On Saturday, May 18, 2019 at approximately 7:25 a.m., officers from the Dartmouth Police Department were dispatched to the Capri Motel for a reported disturbance. Upon their arrival, officers located a 30-year-old Roxbury man lying on the ground in the parking lot.

After speaking with the man, it was learned that he had allegedly been assaulted with a knife and robbed of $100 by three unidentified individuals. After the robbery occurred, the suspects reportedly fled the scene in a vehicle.

Though no injuries were visible on him, the male victim was transported to the hospital after complaining of pain.

As a result of their day-long investigation, Dartmouth Police identified and arrested Anilton Martins, 35, of Fall River; Matthew McDermott, 22, of Fall River; and Tiffany Morgado, 36, of Fall River. All three were charged with armed robbery, assault with a dangerous weapon, assault and battery, intimidation of a witness, and conspiracy to commit a crime.
