Police arrest suspect allegedly involved in armed robbery with pipe



Police have arrested a man who they say committed a masked armed robbery with a pipe.

According to Sergeant Brian Ramos, on Friday, 52-year-old Rafael Gonzalez, of Rehoboth, was arrested in the City of Boston on an outstanding Rehoboth Police Arrest Warrant. Gonzalez was wanted in connection with the Sunday Armed Robbery of a Rehoboth business.

On Sunday at approximately 5:00 p.m., Rehoboth Police were dispatched to a Winthrop Street business for a past robbery. The victim reported being robbed by a man who was wearing a mask and armed with a pipe. The suspect threatened the clerk with the pipe and demanded money from the cash draw. The suspect then fled the store on foot. The subsequent investigation culminated in an arrest warrant being sought for Gonzalez in the Taunton District Court on Thursday.

Gonzalez will be arraigned in Taunton District Court for the charge of Armed Robbery While Masked.

The investigation remains on-going and anyone with additional information is asked to contact Det. Paul McGovern at the Rehoboth Police Department 508-252-3722 ext.1135.
