Police Reports 5/24-5/25
Officers observed two male subjects on Babcock St. Officers observed one of the subjects walk into the vestibule of a building and return to a vehicle with a package. With the knowledge that packages had been reported stolen earlier in the day in the close proximity, it was believed that the subject had just stolen the package from the building. The officer attempted to conduct a traffic stop. Upon reaching the driver’s window, the vehicle backed up and struck the police vehicle. The vehicle then fled from the police on Commonwealth Ave. The vehicle ran several red lights and maneuvered around traffic, pedestrians, and MBTA train tracks.
The vehicle failed to stop for the police, and the suspects left the car on Buick St. and fled on foot. The suspects jumped several fences, crossed over MBTA train tracks, and crossed over Storrow Drive on foot. With assistance from Boston Police, BU Police, and MA State Police, officers set up a perimeter around the area to search for the suspects. Officers were able to apprehend the suspects near the BU Bridge and the Charles River. A search produced the package in question, which was addressed to the Babcock St. residence.
