Fri., Oct. 23rd. 8:31 p.m., Boylston Ave.
An officer working patrol was dispatched to a report of a trespasser sleeping in the doorway of an apartment/condo building located on Boylston Ave. Upon arriving the officer noticed there was a sign posted on the wall above where the suspect, a transient white male aged 32, was sleeping, that read “No Trespassing.” Officer woke the suspect up and asked him for ID. Suspect stated he did not have any ID, and was hesitant in giving his name. He finally gave a name and date of birth, but stated he could not remember his Social Security number. Officer stated that they needed his real ID or he would be arrested for trespassing. Suspect said he wasn’t playing around, and that was his real name. Officers ran the name provided and received a hit; the physical description did not match with that of the suspect. Suspect still insisted that his name was correct. When officers began to arrest the man for trespassing, he became quiet, and then gave his real name and date of birth. They ran his real name; it came back clear, but with an active Department of Corrections hit. When officers asked the suspect why he lied, he replied that he thought he was active with the DOC. Officers told him he was not active with the DOC, and released the man from the scene after trespassing him from the area for one year.
