Friday, November 30th

9:30AM-  An officer in the area of Harvard Street and Beacon Street was flagged down by a taxi driver who informed him that there appeared to be a possible pedestrian struck by a car and the vehicle involved left the scene.  Upon arrival to Harvard Street and Longwood Avenue the officer noticed a female holding the back of her head being assisted by two female witnesses.  A witness reported a male operator in a gray SUV drove up behind the victim’s vehicle and drove around her car striking the car on the rear driver’s side bumper.  The victim who was driving a red SUV exited her car to inspect the damage and viewed the male operator accelerate and strike the rear driver’s side bumper.  The victim raised her hands and yelled stop.  The male operator then appeared to drive towards the victim striking her with the front of the vehicle causing her to fall backwards and hit her head on the ground.  The male left the scene driving southbound on Harvard Street.  Two other witnesses confirmed the events.  Officers were able to locate a plate number using variations provided by a witness.  The registration matched the description of the vehicle and the suspect.  The suspect was located at his home and brought to the station for questioning.  After an interview he was placed under arrest for assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and leaving the scene of an accident. 

11:15AM- A package theft report was taken on Parkman Street.  The complainant reported on 11/29 around 12:44PM he received an email confirmation that six packages had been delivered to his address and left in the outside vestibule.  He arrived home around 4:00PM and found two packages missing.   The two packages contained clothing from Nordstrom.  This case is under investigation.
