City Crime Logs: Baseball with bottles

The following reports were taken from the Allston-Brighton D-14 crime logs from Nov. 21 to Nov. 27.

At about 12:49 a.m. on Sunday, BPD responded to a call about an assault at 161 Brighton Avenue. The victim said the suspect was an unknown man who struck him on the head with a bottle without provocation, leaving the victim with a cut on his left cheekbone.

A witness said there was a confrontation between the victim and the suspect, and that the victim had his arms raised when he was struck with the bottle. The suspect has been described as a 5-foor-7 Asian man who wore a Red Sox cap and possibly a gray fleece at the time of the incident. He fled toward Cambridge Street after the incident and his friends left shortly after in a Toyota Camry.


Friendly Intruders 

On Saturday, a breaking and entering incident occurred at 1202 Commonwealth Avenue between 8:30 and 9:00 a.m. The victim said while he was out that morning, an unknown person entered his apartment and stole a pair of Tech surround sound speakers. He further said that the outside pane of a living room window was smashed, although the inside pane was still intact. The victim did say he may know the offender and that he may have given them a key to enter his apartment. Since the incident, the building managers have covered the broken window and changed the lock on the victim’s front door.


Dueling Hookahs 

The police responded to a call about a disturbance at the Nile Hookah Lounge, located at 70 Brighton Ave., at about 11:13 p.m. on Friday. The manager of the lounge said the suspect was having an argument with a friend when he picked up a glass hookah pipe and threw it in the direction of customers against a wall. The pipe shattered when it hit the wall, showering glass over customers and causing damage to the wall and pieces of artwork that were hanging on it.

When approached by one of the customers, the suspect made a fist and attempted to punch the customer in the head. Another witness, an employee at the lounge, said he observed the suspect pick up a chair and throw it, but it did not hit anyone. The suspect’s girlfriend said the cause of the incident was due to the suspect seeing his ex-girlfriend after an unidentified male friend asked her to pick him up at the lounge.

The suspect fled the lounge after the incident, but returned to retrieve his coat. Back at the lounge, the suspect and the male friend began to fight, knocking down another employee at the lounge. Both men fled toward Chester Street, where the police apprehended the suspect. When apprehended, he was very emotional and smelled strongly of alcohol. He cried and told the police that he would pay for the damage that he caused.


Tech Trouble

At about 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, police received a report about a stolen MacBook Pro laptop from 37 Pratt Street in Allston. The MacBook was taken sometime between 1:00 a.m. and 7:45 a.m. that morning while the victim was asleep in his apartment. When the victim opened his Facebook account on his cellphone at about 8:00 a.m., he was informed that his computer password was changed at about 4:57 a.m.
