The Boston Herald reported Tuesday morning that John Waschela is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday for the crime, in which he stole $90, left the pickaxe behind and fled in a waiting car.

The vehicle he fled in had been reported stolen out of Hingham, according to a report on Boston.com

Waschela allegedly robbed the Hancock Street location, at the Neponset Bridge, just after 1 a.m. Sunday.
