Four people were arrested during a state police sobriety checkpoint on Cabot Street, two during a “saturation patrol” and two during the checkpoint itself, according to a 12:01 a.m. log item. State police declined to provide further information.

Police fielded numerous reports of a vehicle break-ins on Sunday morning, beginning with one at 89 Hale St. at 6:44 a.m. According to the log, other vehicles on Lake Shore Avenue, Baker Avenue, Parramatta Road and Corning Street had also been broken into. An officer said most of the vehicles had been unlocked.

A 5:19 p.m. report that a young female appeared intoxicated brought police to Cabot Street, where they determined her ex-husband was taking her home. “Both deny any problem,” wrote police.

A male was transported home after a 6:17 p.m. report that he was “yelling at traffic” and “jumping in street” at Brimbal Avenue and Colon Street.

Police received an 8:35 p.m. report that 14-year-old had been assaulted by a friend’s neighbor at 204 Manor Road. “Unable to determine the basis of this incident,” an officer wrote later.

An officer responded to a 12:09 p.m. report that kids were “burying themselves neck deep” near Lothrop Street, but police didn’t report finding anything suspicious.


A bicyclist was hospitalized with a knee laceration after she was struck by a vehicle near the corner of Elliott and Chase streets about 5 p.m. The woman was “bleeding badly” after the accident, according to radio reports.
