They could hear movement in the building, and they proceeded to knock on the third floor apartment door. A visibly nervous victim answered the door, and invited the officers into the apartment after officers observed him to be in apparent distress. The officers entered the apartment and discovered the three perpetrators hiding in a bedroom and bathroom of apartment three, and detained them. The victim told the officers that the three men had forced their way into the apartment, telling him that they intended to hide there “til’ the cops leave”. The victim stated that he did not respond to the officers’ arrival at first due to his fear of the suspects. The three suspects, Derrick G. Brown, 18 of Roxbury, Darell J. Rose, 19, of Somerville, and an a 16 year old juvenile from Roxbury were arrested and charged with Breaking and Entering in the Nighttime.

In addition, officers were able to follow a trail of blood from the car to an apartment in the building. As a follow up to the investigation, officers sent a unit to the unoccupied vehicle’s registered address. An officer responded to the registered address of the suspect motor vehicle, and while responding observed a speeding motor vehicle came to a screeching halt in front of the same address. The responding officer immediately exited his car and approached the car where he observed one of the occupants to be bleeding with blood on his hands and t-shirt.
