Investigate Person

07/02/15 – At approximately 3:13 a.m., police responded to a radio call to investigate a person in the rear of 284 Commonwealth Ave.

Dispatch advised officers that a caller said an unknown male had attempted to gain entry to her apartment via the rear window on the fire escape.

Upon arrival, police observed two suspects standing outside the front door at that address. Officers observed one suspect had cuts and dirt on his left arm and shoulder, and that a set of keys was propping open the front door.

The suspects and a witness told police they are renting a room in the building, and there was presently no concierge in the lobby to check them in.

Police spoke to the victim, who said she was in bed when she heard loud banging noises at her window. She said she then entered her kitchen to find the window ajar and an unknown man standing outside on the fire escape. At the time, the victim yelled at the suspect.

“I have a friend upstairs,” the suspect replied, before proceeding up the fire escape.

Officers also spoke to another resident of the building, who said she was in bed when she heard loud banging noises coming from her window. She said her window was then forced off-track, although she didn’t see who was responsible. After police observed that the window was indeed completely off-track and now lying inside the victim’s apartment, they contacted the emergency property manager, who responded and fixed it.

One suspect was placed under arrest and transported to District 4 headquarters, where he was booked in the usual manner and charged with attempted breaking and entering in the nighttime, trespassing and malicious destruction of property over $250.

The second suspect, who was outside the building, will be summonsed to court for trespassing.

A detective also responded to the scene to photograph it.

Evading Fare

07/12/15 – At about 3:19 a.m., an officer responded to an on-site fare evasion at 118 Huntington Ave.

The taxi driver flagged down the officer and told him that a passenger was refusing to pay his full fare after he drove him from Cambridge to his final destination in the Back Bay. The driver said he also picked up an unknown female with the passenger, but dropped her off along the way. The final fare for the taxi ride was $28.80, but the passenger would only pay $15, the driver said.

The officer then spoke with the passenger, who said there had been no female passenger, and that the driver had “taken [him] for a ride and drove [him] in circles.” The passenger said he was unwilling to pay the remaining $14.80 of the fare because he felt that the driver had cheated him.
