Armed robbery suspect still unknown
Police are looking for a woman believed to be involved in an armed robbery last night.
According to Quincy police, the victim, a 20-year-old female from Quincy, was walking from her house to a friends’ house at 8:55 p.m. Tuesday when she noticed a car was following her.
She saw the car again at the intersection of East Squantum Street and Newbury Avenue, and then again as she kept walking, police said. On a side street, the female passenger allegedly got out of the car and switched seats with the male driver.
The female, who was now driving the car, drove over to the victim and grabbed her arm, police said.
According to police, the victim said she was in shock and asked the woman, described as a black female, age 25-35 and approximately 5’3” to 5’5”, what she was doing.
The woman then grabbed a black handgun from her pocket.
The victim said she opened her bag and the suspect took out the wallet and sunglasses. The victim asked for the wallet back and for the suspect just to take the cash, which the suspect did.
The suspect drove off after the incident in the grey Buick. Police checked the area, but were unable to locate any suspects. Anyone with information is encouraged to contact the Quincy Police.
7-11 argument leads to arrest
Quincy police arrested a 23-year-old from Quincy after he allegedly assaulted the clerk at the 7-11 on Hancock Street at 9:38 p.m. Tuesday.
Police responded to a hold up alarm at the 7-11, and spoke to the clerk, who said he had been having trouble with a customer. The suspect fled when he activated the alarm.
According to the clerk, the suspect, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and accompanied by two other males, walked into the store and said he wanted to buy cigars. The suspect then placed pennies on the counter.
When the clerk said it wasn’t enough, the suspect said he would come back and pay for them tomorrow.
According to police, the clerk responded, “we don’t do that,” and the suspect began yelling.
Police said the suspect swung a fist at the clerk and then threw the coins on the counter at his face.
“I’ll pop the (explitive) out of you,” the suspect said, and left when the clerk pulled the alarm, police said.
A nearby officer saw three men matching the suspects’ descriptions walk into a house on Farrington Street.

As a result, Briney Marquis Clady, 23, from Quincy was arrested for assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (the coins), assault, and threatening to commit bodily injury.
