An Arthur Avenue woman called police at 4:47 p.m. “about someone calling her phone and letting it ring once or twice and then hanging up before she can answer the phone. She spoke with an officer yesterday, and he explained there was nothing we could do, and she doesn’t like that answer and wants to speak with the detective.”

A Beacon Street woman reported at 8:43 p.m. that she had received three prank calls on her cellphone and that when she answered the last one someone yelled, “You hit my car!” Police wrote: “She didn’t get who the person was since they were just yelling, but she said she hasn’t hit anyone, and she didn’t know who was calling her.”
