Two Toyota owners involved in an accident with injuries at Boston and Proctor streets told two different stories, according to the log at 8:07 a.m. The Camry driver told police the Corolla driver was trying to pass her when she “tapped” her brakes and was rear-ended by the Corolla. But the Corolla driver said the Camry “abruptly applied her brakes and stopped short,” so a collision was unavoidable. A bystander backed the latter story, but did not stay around long enough for police to get his name.
A past domestic assault and battery was logged at Highland Avenue at 10:08 a.m.

A woman who dropped her iPhone in Periwinkles’ parking lot called the number and got a woman who said she “was going to return it to Periwinkles,” according to the log at 1:47 p.m. As she waited, police advised the owner to call the phone provider and use GPS to locate the phone.
A man spotted a bicycle chained to a guardrail at the welfare office that he believes is the one stolen from him in Lynn last month. He showed police a photo of him on the bike and they observed “it appears to be the same bike.” But the current owner replied that he’s owned the bike for two years. Police took down the bike’s serial number and advised the first man to get his receipt to see if the numbers match.
