Rhode Island man charged for 4 Boston-area bank robberies

BOSTON (AP) — Rhode Island man has been charged in connection with four Boston-area bank robberies last year.

Federal prosecutors say 55-year-old Stephen Davidow, of Pawtucket, robbed the banks between Dec. 6 and Dec. 11. Police determined the same person was involved in the robberies based on bank surveillance footage tellers’ descriptions of the robber and other factors.

Authorities distributed images of the alleged perpetrator to local news and a tipster eventually pointed to Davidow as the suspect. He was arrested Dec. 18 in Rhode Island. Authorities say Davidow had been on supervised release following a 2007 conviction for bank robbery in that state.

Davidow will be arraigned on the charges June 22. His public defender didn’t immediately comment.
