Police released two photos of the man’s tattoos, hoping someone will recognize him.

One tattoo on the man’s arm is called an ankh, a symbol of life.

The other on his back is an elaborate design with Spanish words translating to “The world is mine.”

They haven’t released a photo or description of him or a description of the other suspects at this point in the investigation.

Anyone with information should call police at 781-897-6650 or 781-933-1212.
