July 30th, 2019
On July 30th, Officers responded to a report of a break-in in progress at Brookline High school. Custodians reported seeing a person climbing into the school through a window and yelled at the person to stay out. The person then took off running towards Cypress street. The person was eventually spotted by police after a description of the individual was sent out and he was stopped and eventually placed into handcuffs and taken back to the station.
The suspect is a juvenile who is known to BPD, and was released into the custody of their parents and subsequently summonsed to court.
At approximately 11:50 AM Brookline Police responded to a report of an altercation between two dogs at Buckminister Road. The reporting party stated that they were walking their dog past a friends house and saw someone sitting on the stoop of the house around a corner with only their feet visible. Thinking that it was the reporting party's friend, they approached the person and rounded the corner to discover an unknown person with their dog who sat down to take a rest. The two dogs then got into a scuffle and one was bitten by the other.
Both dogs were registered in Brookline and were up to date on their vaccinations, because of this and the fact that both owners decided it was just an accident, no citations were issued. However the dog that bit the other dog was subject to a mandatory 10 day precautionary quarantine.
