Park Setting No Place for Foul Play

At about 8:46am, on Thursday, May 5, 2011, officers from Area B-2 (Roxbury) responded to a call for two people having sex in a park in the area of Massachusetts Avenue and Shirley Street. Numerous calls were made to 9-1-1 to report and complain about the above-mentioned incident. According to witnesses, the couple was making no effort to hide or conceal their activities from the view of rush hour traffic. On arrival, officers did, in fact, locate two partially clothed individuals who looked to be engaged in some level of sexual activity.  

Upon seeing the approaching officers, both participants stopped doing what they were doing and proceeded to pull up and zip up.

Both suspects, a 28 year-old male and 28 year-old female from Boston, were placed under arrest and charged with Open & Gross Lewdness.
