Suspicious Activity on Kent Street

March 1, 2018 

At approximately 1910 hours (7:10 PM) units were dispatched to the area of Kent Street for suspicious activity. Dispatch notified units that a green/brown Honda sedan approached a 12 year old boy and the operator told the 12 year old to get in the car.

Police units canvassed the area. The boy indicated he was walking from a convenience store in Brookline Village. As he approached Kent Street near Station Street he observed a man in a vehicle on Kent Street facing toward Harvard Street who stopped and asked him for directions. The 12 year old pointed towards Aspinwall Avenue and stated "that way." The man asked him to get in the car and show him. The boy did not respond and ran away from the man and went home where he reported the incident to his mother.

The boy described the vehicle as a green or brown "old, beat up" Honda. He described the driver as having a "middle eastern" accent, a grey mustache, receding hairline and black or dark colored sweatshirt or jacket. He did not observe any other distinguishing marks on the vehicle. Units were unable to locate any vehicles in the area matching that description. Police are investigating.


4:12 PM: An officer was dispatched to the Brookline PD’s front desk to meet a party regarding a stolen wallet, Thursday afternoon. Upon arrival, the victim stated that she had been attending meetings on Babcock St that day, in which she had briefly left her purse unattended. During her commute home, she realized that her wallet was missing. Police are investigating.

Thursday evening, a man came to the Brookline Police Department to report a missing package. The victim reported that the package had been delivered to his Beacon St residence on February 16th while he had been away for a few days. Upon returning home, the victim did not see the package in his mailbox. A follow-up with the postal carrier confirmed that it had not been misdelivered. Police are continuing to investigate.
