BOSTON (WHDH) – One person is facing charges and another is on the run after a dangerous crime spree Thursday night that left a woman injured in Boston.
Police said the suspects stole a bottle of alcohol from The Wild Duck liquor store on Washington Street at around 6 p.m. Thursday before jumping into an unattended Uber.
Jonathan Pagan, 26, of Everett, and another person then allegedly crashed the car about a half block away in front of the Walgreens on Washington Street. Police said the car went up onto a sidewalk and struck down a 21-year-old woman.
The woman was taken to the hospital. She is expected to be OK.
Luke Tubinis said he chased down Pagan, grabbed him and held him until officers arrived on the scene.
“He was screaming back at me, ‘I didn’t do anything. I didn’t do anything’ as he was bleeding. I saw him do it,” said Tubinis.
Police said Pagan’s accomplice fled the scene on foot. In court, Pagan’s mother said she believes police arrested the wrong person.
Pagan was ordered held on $100,000 bail. He is due back in court in March. Police are still searching for the second suspect.
