From Boston Police Area D-4

Investigate Person

03/14/12 – At about 10:58 p.m., an Area D-4 officer responded to assist other officers detailed to traffic stops at Commonwealth Avenue and Hereford Street, where an altercation had occurred.

A victim told police that she had asked a cab driver to let her out at that location and attempted to pay the $9 fare with her credit card. The victim stated that she swiped her card two or three times, but the machine didn’t work.

The driver then exited the taxi, approached the victim and yelled, “You did something to my credit-card machine. I have to get paid. You have to pay me, or I’ll take you to the police station.”

The victim attempted to exit the vehicle, but the driver stood in the way of the vehicle’s door.

The victim screamed “Rape” and yelled for help, at which time officers responded.

The suspect stated that the victim was attempting to evade paying her taxi fare, and that his credit-card machine had worked earlier. He said he was attempting to call police when the victim began screaming for help.

Both parties were uninjured and refused medical attention at the scene.

Warrant Arrest

03/16/12 – At about 8:45 p.m., officers responded to a radio call for a person with a knife at the Tedeschi Food Shop, located at 717 Boylston St.

On the scene, officers spoke with the cashier, who stated that he asked two male suspects to leave after they caused a disturbance inside the store. The cashier said one of the suspects then attempted to take a sandwich without paying for it.

After the cashier confronted the two suspects, one of them displayed a shiny object in his pocket, which the cashier stated might have been a knife or scissors. The suspects then left the store and walked down Boylston Street towards Exeter Street.

Officers later stopped two suspects matching descriptions provided by the cahier and conducted a FIO (Field Intelligence Observation). One suspect was subsequently released, while the other was placed under arrest pursuant to two active warrants out of Boston Municipal Court.

The suspect in custody was then transported to Area D-4 headquarters for processing, and the Warrant Unit was notified.
