The Commonwealth appeals from a judgment of a single justice of the county court denying its petition for relief pursuant to G. L. c. 211, § 3, from an interlocutory ruling of the Boston Municipal Court Department.  We reverse.

The defendant, Adnan Tahlil, has been charged in the Boston Municipal Court Department with larceny from a person, in violation of G. L. c. 266, § 30; assault and battery, in violation of G. L. c. 265, § 13A; assault and battery by means of a dangerous weapon, in violation of G. L. c. 265, § 15A (); and receiving stolen property, in violation of G. L. c. 266, § 60.  The charges stem from an incident that occurred on May 18, 2013, during which several individuals assaulted and robbed the victim.  Shortly thereafter, someone used the victim’s Citizens’ Bank card at a Tedeschi market.  The police obtained a digital video disc (DVD) containing surveillance video from the market.  The victim viewed the DVD at the police station and identified the defendant and two other individuals as three of the four assailants. read more
