Southborough – Police Chief Kenneth Paulhus released this statement this afternoon:
On 1/2/20, at 4:56 p.m., Southborough Police Officers responded to Carriage Hill Circle to speak to an elderly resident who reported being robbed of his wallet and cell phone inside his garage when he returned home from an ATM withdrawal in Framingham.
The victim was confronted by a middle age balding male, who demanded his wallet and cell phone. The suspect made threatening remarks before removing the items from the victim’s pocket, and leaving in a vehicle. The victim was uninjured during the incident.
On 1/3/20, Detective Keith Nichols was able to develop a suspect, working in cooperation with Sudbury Detective Michael Pope, and Framingham Detective Darren Crawford. Framingham patrol officers later located the possible suspect (identified as Timothy Caulfield, age 48, of 100 Pearl Street Framingham), outside of O’Brien’s Liquor Store in Framingham. Detective Nichols responded and obtained further evidence, leading to the arrest of Mr. Caulfield on the following charges: 1) ROBBERY +60, UNARMED, 265/19/A. 2) A&B +60/DISABLED, 265/13K/F. 3) WITNESS, INTIMIDATE, 268/13B/A.
Mr. Caulfield was arraigned in Westborough District Court this morning. He was released on bail until his next court appearance on February 14th. The Department expects charges on a second suspect to be completed shortly.
Anyone having further information should contact Lt. Ryan Newell or Detective Keith Nichols at (508) 485-2147.
