Officers in the area located the 3 suspects at the Radio Shack at 730 Commonwealth Ave. approximately 10 minutes later. When officers approached the suspects, two fled from that location. One was stopped by Boston University police at the rear of 705 Commonwealth Ave.
During the arrest of the first suspect at Radio Shack, a Brookline officer suffered a minor leg injury and was taken to Beth Israel Hospital. The suspect was also transported to Beth Israel Hospital after receiving an OC spray exposure from one of the Brookline officers. A Boston University officer also suffered an injury during the arrest of the second suspect and is being treated at the BU clinic at 930 Commonwealth Avenue.
