Only Small Actors
On Sunday, Sept. 15, at approximately 10:39 a.m., an officer assigned to District 4 responded to a radio call for a reported threat at Emmanuel Church at 15 Newbury St.
Upon arrival, the officer met with the caller and another church employee who reported that a former member of their ensemble, who is now homeless, has been threatening other members for more than a year.
The suspect, who was apparently bitter because she didn’t land any “big roles,” has posted in Facebook posts to members that she intends to “go out for justice.”
The suspect allegedly believes that the ensemble is made up of members of a sex cult, and that three violinists from the ensemble are manipulating her mind via computers.
The suspect also reportedly told the church’s minister that the FBI has advised her to get a gun and a dog. The minister said he knows the suspect owns a dog, and that he asked her is she had a gun when she at the church several days earlier. The suspect reportedly replied, “It’s not on me.”
The suspect’s Facebook posts suggest she is now in Washington, D.C.
The officer told the caller and other church employee to contact if they observe the suspect or receive any addition on her.
On Monday, Sept. 16, at about 5:46 p.m., police responded to a radio call for harassment at 7-Eleven at 261 Dartmouth St.
Upon arrival, officers could hear the male suspect screaming at the top of his lungs and then observed him yelling at store employees, whom he accused of stealing his bags.
The store manager told police that the suspect refused to leave after causing a disturbance in the store.
Officers approached the suspect, who had the smell of alcohol emanating from his breathe, and asked him to relax and calm down, bur he ignored their requests. The suspect then began flailing his arms towards the officers.
As police approached the suspect, he raised in his hands towards one of the officers, who, fearing for his safety, guided the suspect towards the counter in an attempt to calm him down. The suspect then began flexing his muscles, so officers guided him to the ground. The suspect continued to ignore officers’ commands and after a brief struggle, police were able to place him in handcuffs.
The suspect was transported back to District 4 headquarters, where he was booked on charges of trespassing, disorderly conduct, assault and resisting arrest.
