It should be noted that this area/park has been the subject of concern for police officers and area residents. As officers stopped their motor vehicle, and came to a stop, they immediately noticed that one member of the group, the suspect named above, was quickly breaking away from the group, clutching his side as if armed with a gun. The suspect quickly pedaled away from officers, disappearing behind some bushes, and resurfaced a short time later. Officers detained the suspect based on his actions, and searched behind the bushes where the suspect had disappeared. There, officers located a loaded gun hidden in the bushes. Before officers could inform the suspect the nature of the found object, he disavowed ownership, stating that officers “ . . .better print that, it’s not mine!” Suspect was arrested and charged with the above offenses. Loud Party Ends in Quiet Night at the Station Just after midnight this morning, August 17, 2007, officers from District B-2 (Roxbury) responded to a 911 call reporting a loud party at 121 Calumet Street in Mission Hill. On arrival, officers could hear music and people talking from the third floor porch, so they proceeded to the third floor apartment. A female occupant let the officers into the apartment, where approximately twenty guests were observed. The residents were located and asked for identification, at which point one of the females became uncooperative and snatched her ID from the officers hand, stating that she did not have to give them her information. As the officer attempted to place her under arrest, the suspect was resistant and attempted to avoid being handcuffed. At this time, another resident became confrontational with the officer and she was also placed under arrest. A third roommate was located soon after and also placed under arrest with the other two suspects because officers deemed them all equally responsible for the party.
