BOSTON — Officers from the Boston Police Department’s District B-2 arrested a man early Saturday morning after responding to a report of an individual armed with a knife and a stolen moped.

At about 4:37 a.m., police were called to the area of 238 Warren Street where they were met by the victim.

The victim had tracked his stolen moped to the location and told officers that the suspect, later identified as Micheal Williams, 38, of Dorchester, threatened him with a knife when he tried to recover his vehicle.

Upon arrival, officers located Williams asleep in a box truck.

When they commanded him to exit, Williams pushed an officer, leading to a physical altercation.

He was subsequently handcuffed, and a knife was found in his right pant pocket.

Williams faces charges including two counts of Assault with a Dangerous Weapon, Receiving Stolen Property over $1,200, and Intimidation of a Witness.

Further investigation revealed that Williams had three active arrest warrants.

He is slated for arraignment in Dorchester District Court.
