Two Arrested After Attempted Armed Robbery on Beach Street
The pair allegedly pulled up alongside the victim from their vehicle, brandishing a knife and demanding money. Instead, the victim fled and called police.
Malden police arrested two suspects after a quick response to an attempted armed robbery on Beach Street around 10:45 p.m. Monday night.
Doreese Licardi, 18, of Boston Avenue in Medford and Corey A. Calla Sr., 18, of Montrose Street in Malden were arrested for alleged armed assault with intent to rob, Lt. Det. Marc Gatcomb confirmed Tuesday.
Licari also faces additional charges of alleged class "E" drug possession and conspiracy.
"These individuals were arrested last evening after the victim reported being approached while walking on Beach St.," Gatcomb wrote in an email. "A knife was brandished and money demanded.
"Patrol officers conducted a preliminary investigation and quickly conducted a search of the area. A vehicle was located by Officer Langston that matched the description used in the crime and further investigation led to the arrests."
The two were arraigned in Malden District Court Tuesday, but information about their case was not immediately available.
