ARMED ROBBERY: Man beaten with baton, threatened with gun, wallet stolen… [VIDEO]


HYANNIS – Since time immemorial, mouth-breathing neanderthal thugs have been beating others with sticks…

… last evening was no different on Ferndock Street.

As you will hear in the following video, a man called police last evening, upset, stating he had just been struck with a bat (later described as a baton), then threatened with a gun, and robbed of his wallet.

At about 11:00PM, Barnstable police squad cars met the robbery victim in the parking lot of the 7-Eleven convenience store on Yarmouth Road near the Barnstable/Yarmouth town line.

The victim sitting on a curb sounded upset and frightened, pointing to an apparent contusion in the area of his left shine bone. He had his ideas as to whom the suspects were…

“Stop screaming and give me your money!” was a demand reportedly made by a lead suspect.

There appears to have been a total of 3 suspects, a male, a female, and a “light skinned black male” identified as the lead/prime suspect.

It was immediately apparent there was probable cause for the arrest of at least the prime suspect.

All three compadres boarded and fled the scene in what was described as silver 4 door sedan.

Aside from being on the receiving end of a sharp wallop from a baton, the victim told police he was also threatened with a gun.

Patrol cars in the mid-Cape scrambled to check likely locations. About half an hour into the call, an alert patrolman spotted the likely getaway vehicle parked in front of a room at the Hyannis Host Inn.

As you will see in the video, officers converged on the room and briefly detained three individuals, which resulted in a woman being taken back to police headquarters for questioning…


HN NOTE: Due to recent and ongoing harassment from several misguided police administrators, HN is not able to take and/or waste time calling police for additional information, as was the custom for several years…. with HN assisting the police in many arrests, cases and vice versa over a span of decades. It’s truly sad several misguided individuals have interfered with that. HN will continue to reach out to the Barnstable Police patrol force upon receiving a written apology from members of the administration for past and ongoing harassment in relation to withholding public press releases distributed to everyone else but HN. In the meantime, HN will attempt to cover the news despite the aforementioned harassment and obstruction of my livelihood.


The following video highlights last evening’s crime scene.

    Unfortunately it’s probably not solely the Dept’s directive but heat from selectman or other town administrators bearing down on the cops. Barnstable’s Town Fathers do not care for its hard working TAX PAYING citizens. It rather would coddle Illegal immigrants, Drug USERS & DEALERS, scumbags of all colors & types, but the ones that pay their salary….two letters F.Y.!
    It is why I sold my house why I moved out of Barnstable/Hyannis and do not patronize any store or business in that hellhole, haven’t in over 25years. Closest I get is passing through on the Midcape to civilized towns and villages.

    I was wondering why there wasn’t as much HN coverage lately. That’s a shame really. It’s much better to read the news here than to rely on the local left slanted newspaper.

    Does this have to do with a recent effort to find out information regarding Officer Challies before the department was ready to make sure information public? Likely.

    Twenty years ago the police were by and large good people, now ,due to liberal micro-managing, socialized demon-crapic Cape elected thugery, it is more like the old reconstruction era south than the South ever was. Not much different than the enforcement arm of the Democratic party ( IE, The KKK). If anyone does not believe me , look up history!!
