Nicotine Fit

On Tuesday, Oct. 29, at approximately 10:34 p.m., officers responded to a call for reported threats at Two Saints, a tavern located at 52 Gainsborough St.

Upon arrival, police spoke to the victim who said while sitting at the bar, he offered to roll a cigarette for the man sitting beside him after watching him fail at the task.

The man then became aggressive and threatened to “murder” the victim before leaving the bar in an unknown direction.

Police searched the area for the suspect to no avail.

Phantom Diner?

On Thursday, Oct. 31, at about 7:56 a.m., police responded to a radio call for a breaking and entering at University Grill and Pizza located at 712 Commonwealth Ave.

On arrival, the officer spoke to the owner, who said when he arrived at the restaurant for work, he observed the glass front-entrance door was broken, and that the doors leading to the rear exit were left ajar. He told police he found no further damage to the establishment and nothing appeared to be missing at this time.

The owner told police that the restaurant has a video-security system, but he was unable to access it at that time.

Soon afterwards, the general manager arrived on the scene and stated the contracted cleaning company must’ve forgotten to reactivate the alarm after completing their duties the pervious evening.

The general manger then canvased the establishment and observed no further damage or missing items, although she noticed that the cahier’s drawer was open and paper was strewn about the floor.

She said that money typically wasn’t kept in the drawer, and that a safe on the premises appeared to be untouched.

The general manger also told police that she believes the security cameras weren’t functioning at the time of the break-in.

District 4 detectives also responded to the scene.
