D-4 Police News
Dumb as a Rock
On Monday, July 1, at around 2:10 a.m., police patrolling the exterior of the Boston Medical Center at 830 Harrison Ave. heard a loud sound and observed a male suspect leaning over the passenger’s side of a marked Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department patrol car, as well as a large rock on the passenger’s seat and glass on the ground nearby. The officer placed the suspect in double-locked handcuffs at this time.
A surveillance video, which will be saved as evidence, depicts the suspect approaching the patrol car while carrying a large rock with both hands. The suspect is then seen throwing the rock at the cruiser, causing front window on the passenger’s side to shatter. The suspect then opens the door and enters the vehicle before the responding officer stopped him.
The Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department was notified of the incident, and representatives responded to the scene to secure the vehicle for towing.
The suspect denied having any business at Boston Medical Center, and a check determined that he wasn’t currently a patient at the hospital, nor was he seeking any medical attention at this time.
A hospital security guard also told police that the suspect had been located tampering with the bike racks outside of 850 Harrison Ave.
The officer notified the suspect at this time that the hospital is private property, and that all entrances are adorned with signage to this effect. The officer also ordered the suspect to leave the property and not to return there unless he had medical business, or he would be subject to arrest.
The suspect was then taken into custody, read his Miranda rights and subject to an on-site search, at which time a knife in violation of a Boston city Ordinance for having a blade over 2.5 inches was recovered and seized from his person.
The suspect was charged with one felony count of destruction of personal property, one felony count of breaking and entering into a motor vehicle in the nighttime and one count of trespassing on private property after receiving previously a verbal or written warning to stay off the premises. He was transported tom District 4 headquarters for booking.
On Tuesday, July 2, at about 6:36 p.m., officers responded to Typhoon Asian Bistro at 725 Boylston St. for a reported disturbance.
Upon arrival, police spoke to an employee, who said two male suspects just left the restaurant after causing a disturbance. The suspects ordered approximately $125 worth of food, but became abusive towards staff when they couldn’t pay their bill.
The suspect then claimed they needed to retrieve money from an ATM, at which time the restaurant manager escorted them to one on Boylston Street. One of the suspects was then found to have insufficient funds to cover their tab, so the manager returned to the restaurant and notified police of the matter.
