Daily Dose of Great Police Work: Boston Police Officers and Boston Firemen Work Together to Apprehend 3 Breaking and Entering Suspects


At about 1:43 AM on Tuesday, July 29, 2014, officers from District A-1 (Downtown) responded to a radio call for a suspicious person in the area of 9 Park Street in the Downtown area.

On arrival, officers were met by the caller who stated that he observed an unknown black male enter the alley way next to the building. When the caller investigated, he could hear voices coming from the roof of the building. The caller also observed the metal gate which gives access to the fire escape to be open leading to residential condos undergoing construction. Officers, unable to gain access to the roof, observed a white female on the roof of the building. Following several verbal commands, the female climbed down the ladder. The female suspect stated that she was on the roof with two black males, but that she did not know their names. Officers then scaled the ladder to the roof and, following an extensive search, were able to locate the two male suspects in the vicinity of an open window leading to one of the condos. The suspects and officers were brought to safety with the assistance of a ladder provided by the Boston Fire Department.

Officers arrested 19-year-old Mahad Farah of Charlestown, 19-year-old Ismail Ibrahim of Jamaican Plain, and 22-year-old Patricia Evelyn Lambert of Medford. All were charged with Breaking and Entering a Building with Intent to Commit a Felony, Trespassing, and Resisting Arrest.
