BOSTON (CBS) – A young man wanted for a brutal home invasion in Hyde Park last week has been arrested and arraigned Tuesday.
Cesar Lara-Aguasvivas, 23, of Boston, was captured in Dorchester Monday night, Police Commissioner Bill Evans told WBZ NewsRadio 1030.
“He’s sort of a vicious kid for what he did to that poor woman. We’re looking at him for doing similar crimes in similar towns. So, it’s good to get him off the street,” Evans said.
He was arraigned in West Roxbury Municipal Court on charges of home invasion, kidnapping while armed with a firearm, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, and malicious destruction of property over $250. He is held on $1 million bail.
He was one of four men wanted for assaulting and kidnapping a 59-year-old woman at her Beaver Street home Thursday, July 6.
She said the men were armed, broke in through a window and held her at gunpoint. They robbed her and ransacked her house, according to investigators. The woman said the men made her drive to an ATM and forced her to withdraw money. They later dumped her by the road at Mount Hope Cemetery in Mattapan.
Lara-Aguasvivas was identified by surveillance video footage from the ATM visit along with fingerprint evidence from the home, prosecutors said.
The woman was taken to Faulkner Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Evans said they’re still looking for the other three men.

Lara-Aguasvivas is scheduled to return to court on August 3.
