In Massachusetts, in order to be convicted of the crime of Armed Robbery, the prosecutor must prove:
- That the defendant was armed with a dangerous weapon;
- That the defendant either applied actual force and violence to the body of the victim, or put the victim in fear by threatening words or gestures;
- That the defendant took the money or other property with the intent to steal it; and
- That the defendant took the money or other property from the person or immediate control of the victim.
