Rhode Island man charged in Massachusetts bank robbery

May 23, 2019

BOSTON (AP) — Federal authorities say a Rhode Island man has been arrested in connection with a Boston-area bank robbery in which the suspect fired a shot into the bank’s ceiling and opened fire at a pursuing officer.

The FBI says 32-year-old Daniel Rosado was arrested in Providence, Rhode Island at about 6:30 a.m. Thursday.

He faces charges including armed bank robbery and discharging a firearm during a violent crime. He’s scheduled to appear in Boston federal court later Thursday.

Authorities say he entered the Middlesex Federal Savings Bank in Somerville on May 1, brandished a handgun, fired into the ceiling, and pointed the gun at customers and employees. He demanded money and exchanged gunfire with an officer who had been alerted by a customer.

It wasn’t clear if he had a lawyer.
