5:35 AM- Officers responded to Beacon Street for a report that a woman was groped on Washington Street.  The suspect was described as a white male in his 20s, 5’10”-5’11”, stocky build, short brown hair, with facial stubble, and wearing a black dress/nightgown with a lace garter belt.  The information was broadcasted to Boston Police and Transit Police while Brookline units were searching the area.  The victim stated while walking on the odd side of Washington Street near the intersection of Salisbury Road, she passed a male party of the above description who was walking in the opposite direction on the same side of the street.  When she was passing the male, she felt him grab her from behind by the shoulders and pull her toward him.  He then groped her buttocks.  She screamed and ran down Washington Street and turned onto Beacon Street.  She called the police around Beacon and Marion Street. 

5:22 AM-Officers responded to the area of Harvard Street for a report of a shoplifting incident that occurred at the CVS.  The suspect was said to have traveled toward Beacon Street and a description of the suspect was given to the officers.  An officer arrived at an alley way to a Centre Street Lot at Harvard Street where he met two CVS employees carrying 8 large Tide bottles, two in each hand.  They told the officer the suspect left the parking lot two minutes prior and headed toward Centre Street.  They stated the Tide bottles fell out of the suspect’s luggage while he was attempting to escape.  The supervisor of the store relayed that the suspect came into the store from the rear parking lot entrance and had put Tide bottles into a suitcase.  He confronted the suspect at the rear entrance, who then dumped cleaning products out of his backpack and proceeded to leave.  He was observed wheeling a suitcase out toward the parking lot by the supervisor.  He confronted the suspect in the parking lot where he discovered 8 large Tide bottles and other items.  The suspect quickly shut the suitcase and ran off in the direction of Centre and Beacon Street.  The area was canvassed by officers with negative results.  Video surveillance confirms the suspect’s actions in the store.  This case is under investigation.
