Barnstable PD/Armed Robbery Arrests
Monday night Barnstable Police responded to Indian Hill Road in Barnstable where three victims claimed they had been robbed at gunpoint by two men they met for a drug transaction.
The suspects were identified as 25 year old Valter Barbosa and 18 year old Nathon Ribeiro-Neves, both from Brockton.
One victim told police that Robeiro-Neves allegedly restrained him while Barbosa pulled a gun from his waistband and demanded cash and drugs before fleeing with one of the victim’s backpack containing narcotics and personal items.
About an hour later, State Police stopped the suspect’s vehicle on Route 3 in Plymouth and recovered the stolen backpack and a replica firearm.
Barbosa and Ribeiro-Neves were arrested and charged with armed robbery, assault with a dangerous weapon, assault and battery and larceny of property over 12-hundred dollars.
They were arraigned Tuesday in Barnstable District Court.
