Armed robbery case dismissed
DUDLEY - Armed robbery and conspiracy charges have been dismissed against a 19-year-old Methuen man accused of robbing a food deliveryman Sept. 11 in Oxford.
Judge Neil G. Snider dismissed the charges in Dudley District Court, after a grand jury in Worcester Superior Court did not return an indictment against Rouluis Felix, 9 Granite St., Apt. 22.
Madinson Ortega, of Chelsea, and Jason Isaac, of Lawrence, also were charged and their cases are pending.
Oxford police said the deliveryman was bringing food from Main Street Chinese Restaurant, 140 Main St., Webster, to the Orchard Hill development off Sutton Avenue in Oxford about 5 p.m.
Police said when the deliveryman entered a hallway in Building C, he was met by a man who asked if he was delivering Chinese food. When the deliveryman said he was, another man approached him. One man knocked the deliveryman to the floor, and another brandished a pistol and demanded money.
The men allegedly left with about $37 and Chinese food worth about $50, telling the deliveryman to stay where he was. He called 911.
A state police dog followed a trail that led to an apartment in Building Q of the development, across the quad from Building C, where they found three men, police said.
Police said they recovered money and receipts from earlier deliveries rolled in with the money, and the food.
Police said the men were staying at the apartment at the invitation of a woman they had met at an online chat room two weeks before.
