Man carjacks limo carrying members of bridal party to church

The Boston Police Department reports a limo driver who'd just pulled up to Blessed Mother Teresa Church with members of a bridal party in back was punched and pushed out of the vehicle Saturday afternoon.

According to a police account, the man had broken into a house on Howes Street and was running from that when he got to the limo. Police say the driver reported "the suspect opened the door to the car, threw two bags into the car and demanded that the victim 'start driving!'

"The victim initially refused to do the suspect's bidding and a struggle ensued. During this struggle the victim was punched several times and was eventually thrown out of the limousine. After forcing the victim/driver out of the car, the suspect went on to order several members of the bridal party who were in the back of the limousine out of the car."

Police say the suspect, described as white, about 40, 6'0" and 180 lbs., careened into a postal vehicle before disappearing in the vicinity of Edward Everett Square. The limo was recovered about two miles away in front of 31 W. 5th St. in South Boston.
