Cesar Lara Aguasvivas, 23, was taken into custody by Boston police Monday night in Dorchester. He was arraigned in West Roxbury Municipal Court and a judge ordered him held on $1 million bail.

Police say Aguasvivas was one of four armed men who broke into a woman’s Beaver Street home last week before assaulting her. They then allegedly took her to an ATM, forced her to withdraw cash and then dumped her in Mattapan.

Investigators say the woman later flagged down a passing motorist and called police.

“We can only imagine the terror the victim suffered during this ordeal,” District Attorney Dan Conley said. “Her well-being is our foremost concern.”

Aguasvivas is charged with home invasion, kidnapping, assault with a dangerous weapon, larceny and destruction of property.
