Babysitter clubbed

The following reports were taken from the Boston Police Department Allston-Brighton District D-14 crime logs from Nov. 10 to 15.

Officers responded to a report of an assault and battery at 4:03 p.m. Nov. 10. When officers arrived, a ‘very nervous and shaken’ woman told them she was home babysitting when a man came into her apartment, snatched money from her hand and punched her in the mouth. As she tried to stand up, he punched her again. When she got away from him, the man grabbed her shirt to stop her. She yelled for another woman in the house to grab the children and run to safety.

The man then removed his belt as if to strike her and called her a snitch before reportedly yelling, ‘This is what you get for ratting and telling those officers that I am selling drugs.’ Eventually, the woman managed to grab a baseball bat to defend herself, but the man just laughed and fled the apartment. Officers did a search of the area and located the man, and after questioning him, arrested him for breaking and entering, unarmed robbery, assault and battery with injuries and assault with a deadly weapon.


Officers responded to reports of men refusing to leave a party at 2:21 a.m. Nov. 15. After officers asked the partygoers to leave the premises, one officer saw a man pull open the police car door and throw something inside before running away. Officers caught the man after chasing him on foot. Upon returning to the police car, police discovered beer poured throughout the driver’s side of the vehicle. Police arrested the man, who told them during transport to the station that it was not him but the woman he was with who had poured the beer in the car.


Officers responded to a report of a robbery at 9:11 p.m. Nov. 11. Officers spoke to a Soul Fire delivery driver who said he was pulled off his motorcycle by four men after making a delivery. The men stopped in the middle of the street and when the driver tried to steer around him, they pulled him off his motorcycle, and took his wallet, cell phone and money in his pocket.


Officers received a radio call for assault with a paintball gun at 11:54 a.m. Nov. 13. After receiving the call, officers were flagged down by a pedestrian, who said he saw a passenger in an SUV shoot a paintball gun at a residential window. While in the area, officers saw several paintball markings on vehicles and buildings. A man who was riding his bicycle on Commonwealth Avenue told police he was hit on the thigh by a paint ball and identified the same vehicle reported before. The report was broadcast over police radio and Cambridge police reported they had a similar incident 20 minutes earlier. Cambridge police located the SUV and arrested the occupants and recovered two paintball guns in the vehicle.
