Friday, December 7th

9:38AM- A Brookline resident reported her dog was attacked by another dog on 12/6 at Margret Robinson Playground.  The reporting party explained she was walking her dog in the playground when another off leashed dog approached hers calmly.  The two dogs began fighting over a stick and the other dog attacked hers.  The owner of the other dog separated the two.  Due to the time of night, it was dark and the complainant did not notice any injuries on her dog until she got home.  The dog’s right ear was injured.  With a description of the attacking dog and the dog’s name, the dog and owner were found in the system and contacted.  The owner agreed with the details of the incident.  She was issued a Town of Brookline By-Law Citation for a Dog at Large and Biting or Injuring another Domestic Animal.

12:06PM-  A report of an animal bite was taken by Brookline Animal Control.  The reporting party reported her dog bit her infant grandchild.  The grandchild was pulling on the dog’s skin when the dog bit her on the nose.  This case is under investigation.

5:38PM- Officers were dispatched to the Brookline High School for a larceny report.  Campus security reported at 5:07PM Brookline Fire and campus security responded to the school for a fire alarm activation.  During the activation faculty, students and parents walked outside.  After the building was checked everyone returned to the school.  A custodian noticed several backpacks by a staircase and contacted campus security.  The security officer reported the backpacks had been rummaged through and contents were emptied and scattered all over.  The victims reported occupying a team room until the alarm activated.  They exited the school and upon return observed their backpacks scattered by a staircase.  Before exiting the building their backpacks were left on the hallway floor and on the table outside the room.  Four students reported missing money.  This case is being investigated.
