Framingham Man, 20, Charged With Armed Robbery, Assault in Weymouth

FRAMINGHAM – A Framingham man was arrested and charged with armed robbery and other charges, following a hold up at a gas station in Weymouth.

Igor M. Costa, 20, was charged with assault and battery with a firearm, armed robbery, armed assault to rob a person older than 60, and conspiracy.

Police said the Framingham man was one of three people who robbed a Mobile Gas Station at 512 Main Street in Weymouth, with a gun, on January 17 around 3:30 a.m.

Police said Costa and a Revere teem, 17, went into the gas station and robbed the 64-year-old attendant, while a third individual waited outside.

The teen showed a gun, and the attendant tried to take the gun and the teen repeatedly struck him with butt of the gun in the head, according to Police.

A struggle happened, and the attendant was thrown to the ground, with the teen pointing the gun at the man, 64, according to police. Paramedics treated the attendant for lacerations.

According to Police, Costa and the teen stole $565 in cash and $1,150 worth of cigarettes.

According to Police, who watched video from the gas station, the teen may have shot himself leaving the scene.

Costa was arraigned in Quincy District Court yesterday, January 24. He is being held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing on Tuesday.

The teen’s name has not been released by police, but he was arrested and charged with armed robbery, assault and battery with a firearm, armed assault to rob a person older than 60, carrying a firearm without a license, discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a dwelling, possession of ammunition without a firearms identification card, and conspiracy to commit a crime.

The third individual is still at-large and sought by police.
