Former Cambridge police officer charged with robbing elderly man

A former Cambridge police officer is facing multiple felony charges after he allegedly assaulted and robbed an elderly man in Southborough last week, authorities said.

Timothy Caulfield, 48, of Framingham was arrested Friday and charged with unarmed robbery on an individual over 60, assault and battery on an individual over 60 and witness intimidation, after he allegedly robbed an elderly man of his wallet and cellphone the day before.

According to a release issued by Southborough police, shortly before 5 p.m. Thursday the victim returned home from making an ATM withdrawal when he was confronted in his garage by a middle-aged balding man, who made threatening remarks before removing the victim’s cellphone and wallet from his pocket and taking off in a vehicle.

The suspect, later identified as Caulfield, was discovered outside of O’Brien’s Liquor Store in Framingham and taken into custody, according to Southborough police.

The victim was not injured in the altercation.

Caulfield was arraigned in Westborough District Court Monday morning and released on bail. He is due back in court on Feb. 14.

A spokesman for the Cambridge police confirmed that Caulfield used to be an officer with the department, adding that he left in 2016 after working there for 16 years.

Southborough police said they also expect to charge another person in connection to the incident, but did not provide further details.
