D-4 POLICE NEWS
On Monday, May 7, at about 2:30 p.m., police responded to a radio call for reported threats at the New Balance store at 582 Boylston St.
Upon arrival, officers spoke to a store associate, who said on April 30 at around 6 p.m., three male suspects and a female suspect entered the store. The female apparently attempted to distract employees while her accomplices canvassed the store. When the female failed to attract their attention, she became irate, claiming that employees were unduly suspicious of her and the other suspects. Then, the female accosted the store associate and goaded him to step outside, where her two accomplices intended to assault him up. The suspects all ended up leaving the premises without incident.
Police advised the sales associate to contact them if the suspects returned to the store.
Dollars to donuts
On Tuesday, May 8, at approximately 8:20 a.m., police responded to Dunkin’ Donuts at 283 Huntington Ave. for a report of a suspicious person.
On arrival, the manager escorted officers to the cooking area, where he showed them what appeared to be a counterfeit $20 bill that a male suspect had attempted to use to purchase breakfast items.
At that time, the cashier tested the bill using a special pen, which led her to believe it was fraudulent. When she called over the manager to check it, the suspect became frustrated and began raising his voice. The suspect left the premises when the manger told him he planned to call the police.
Police viewed security footage of the suspect and seized the bill as evidence.
