BOSTON — Four suspects have been arrested and two stolen moped scooters were recovered by Boston Police Department detectives and officers from Hyde Park following investigations into separate incidents involving the same individuals.

On June 5, at approximately 11:36 a.m., detectives and officers from District E-18 were called to 148 Central Avenue after an armed robbery was reported.

The victim and witnesses described being robbed of a moped scooter by several male suspects, one of whom brandished a firearm.

The suspects reportedly fled on the stolen scooter along with two others they had arrived on.

A neighborhood investigation led detectives to evidence implicating five individuals in the robbery.

Descriptions of the suspects were broadcast over police radio, prompting an officer from the BPD School Unit to connect the descriptions to an assault at the nearby Academy of the Pacific Rim School.

Following leads from the School Police Unit, officers focused their search on the area between Garfield Ave. and Washington St. There, they encountered several suspects, leading to a foot pursuit and the eventual arrest of four individuals.

The recovered mopeds were taken into custody, with one returned to its owner and the other held at District E-18.

Sincere Hector Lyons, 18, of Dedham, MA, was arrested and faces arraignment at West Roxbury District Court on charges of armed robbery with a firearm and receiving a stolen motor vehicle.

Three juveniles were also arrested and are due to be arraigned in Boston Juvenile Court on similar charges.

One juvenile has additionally been cited for operating a motor vehicle without a license.
