Boston police arrest 3 men involved with racist fliers

An officer tried to talk to them, but they did not cooperate.

Three men who police say were involved in posting fliers promoting white supremacy in an East Boston neighborhood were arrested Friday night, a police spokesman said.

Matthew Wolf, 26, of Lowell, Christopher Hood, 20, of Malden, and Tylar Larson, 18, of Rochester, N.Y. are facing assault or weapons charges, police said Saturday.

They were apprehended at about 9:45 p.m. by an officer who was patrolling the Winthrop Street area after posters supporting the white supremacy group Patriot Front were discovered in the area on Thursday.
