    (Published Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2019)

    Police in Boston's Dorchester neighborhood are looking for a man who robbed a store at gunpoint in broad daylight.

    Jesus Frias, who owns Columbia Road Market, was by himself when a gunman robbed both his cash registers for more than $2,000 Tuesday. The robbery happened just before 2 p.m.

    "He looked suspicious," said Frias. "He goes to the back, he tried to look at me, I looked at him. He take the money and he left. Then he pulled a gun on me."

    Surveillance video shows the maskless man pulling out his gun, then Frias opening the registers before retreating with his hands up. Then, the suspect runs off with money and lottery tickets.
