City Crime Logs: There will be blood

The following reports were taken from the Allston-Brighton D-14 crime logs from Jan. 16 to Jan. 22.


At about 1:21 a.m. Saturday, a man was stabbed in an apartment at 389 Cambridge St. When the police arrived at the scene, they observed a trail of blood from the first floor common area of the building to the second floor apartment. The victim was found sitting on the living room couch of his apartment with a cut on his face and multiple stab wounds on his back. He was later treated and transported to Brigham and Women’s Hospital. The victim’s roommate told police officers at the scene that he heard screaming in the building, saw the victim run into their apartment and a suspect run outside toward Harvard Avenue. The victim stated that he saw the suspect run in his direction but did not think that he was dangerous. The suspect also tried and failed to take the victim’s iPad and headphones. The suspect was described as a stocky white man in a black coat and blue jeans. No further information on the subject is available.


Not my gym bag!

A breaking and entering incident occurred in an apartment located at 1638 Commonwealth Ave. between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Friday. The unknown suspect entered through the front door and stole about $4150 worth of property, including electronics, jewelry and a gym bag. The police searched the area but failed to find the suspect, other victims or witnesses. The main entrance of the apartment building was also found to be functional and locked at the time of the incident.


Roommate gone rogue

On Friday, a man accused his roommate of stealing from his locked bedroom at 44 Cummings Road between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. The roommate allegedly stole a laptop computer, an iPad and $50 worth of cash from the man. Although a living room window to the apartment was open during the day, it was most likely not a means of forcible entry due to undisturbed objects at the entrance point. After the report, the police used the GPS device in the iPad and laptop to track the suspect. The suspect, has been the roommate of the victim for two months.


Drinkin’ out of cups

At about 4:23 a.m. Saturday a male was walking on Lake Street in Brighton to grab a cup of coffee when he witnessed two white males standing in a yard shooting a BB gun at red solo cups on a fence across the street. The victim became scared and drove to the police station to the report the incident. When officers arrived, they spoke to the two shooters, conducted a protective sweep of their apartment and confiscated the various BB guns and ammo. One of the suspects was identified as a Boston College graduate student. Detectives are still investigating.
