A man was seen “stumbling down Lafayette Street” and singing, using an orange traffic cone for amplification. Judged to be drunk, “for his safety, as well as the safety of the public and the traffic cone, he was placed into protective custody,” police wrote.

Police will alert state authorities after finding a 3-year-old wandering the halls at the apartment at 1000 Loring Avenue, as logged at 6:59 a.m. When the father showed up, after about 20 minutes, he “was upset and concerned about the child getting out of the apartment.” The family had just moved into the building.

A Highland Avenue tenant moved out and told the landlord he could keep the $1,500 deposit. The landlord contacted police at 12:28 p.m. to show them that all the window blinds had been taken, the kitchen countertop was damaged, all the light bulbs were missing, a bathroom door was cracked, wallboard in the attic was damaged, a door was gone and there was a hole in the floor leading to a downstairs closet.

A woman forced from her apartment on Webb Street in the wake of Hurricane Sandy complained to police at 1:07 p.m. that she just came back to find her television cracked and lying on her bed. “She is also missing some electronics,” according to the log. Police advised her to go to the landlord and her insurer.

Police responded to Rainbow Terrace and a report of animal cruelty at 2:55 p.m. Kids pointed to a dog and said “earlier, a group of older children were throwing rocks and sticks at the dog,” according to the log. Apparently uninjured, the dog was also unlicensed. Police took the creature to the animal control officer.

A stolen credit card used at the Boston Street Walgreens drew police at 10:16 p.m. “The suspect had already left the store,” according to the log.
