Police Nab Two Men and One Woman After Early Morning Robbery/Assault

A man riding his bike was robbed and assaulted on Saturday morning.

An elderly man was robbed by two men while riding his bike on Pleasant Street in Northborough early Saturday morning, said Northborough police.

The man had been riding his bike before 5 a.m. on Pleasant Street when he heard two doors close, and he rode past two men that were standing outside of a car. The car passed him again while he stopped to pick flowers on the side of the road, police said.

The two men approached him, grabbed him, and tried to get his wallet. The victim yelled for police and during the struggle he was knocked to the ground. The men ran off and they were seen getting into a white car, which had drive past them to pick them up.

After a "be on the lockout" was released to area departments, an officer from Hudson police spotted the vehicle, and the suspects were identified and arrested at Cumberland Farms.

Heather L. Collazo, 35, 665 Boston Road, Sudbury, was arrested and charged with unarmed assault with intent to rob and conspiracy. Jabiel I. Zayas, 37, 15 Sturgis St., Worcester, was charged wth assault and battery on a person over 65, with injury, and unarmed assault with intent to rob and conspiracy. A third suspect, an unnamed juvenile, was also charged with the same.

I am absolutely disgusted at this. This is the most disgraceful behavior. I hope these individuals are severely punished for what they have done they should be ashamed.

I'm not surprised by this at all; not surprised that Heather attempted this feckless plot, and not surprised that she failed miserably at it. I feel bad for her dad, though,who is an honest and hard working man; a real good guy. And I feel bad for the "unnamed juvenile" who is learning all the wrong stuff, and how to do it badly.
