PONDSIDE—A pair of brazen criminals robbed two people on the front porch of their 81 Moraine St. home on the evening of April 7, according to Boston Police Department (BPD) spokesperson Elaine Driscoll.

“[The victims] were sitting on the porch when two unknown Hispanic males ran up on the porch with their hands under their shirts, acting as if they had guns [and] yelling, ‘Don’t say anything!’” Driscoll said, citing a BPD report about the crime, which happened around 7:30 p.m.

The robbers stole two laptop computers from the victims and fled toward Perkins Street, Driscoll said. Police officers were unable to find the suspects.
