Daily Dose of Great Police Work: Officers Arrest Unruly Suspect for Damaging Taxi Cab Downtown


At about 1:08 AM on Sunday, August 10, 2014, officers from District A-1 (Downtown) responded to a radio call for vandalism in progress in the area of Hanover Street and Union Street in the Downtown area.

On arrival, officers spoke to the victim, a taxi driver, who stated that he had dropped off the suspect and an unknown female in the area of the above location. While the female was attempting to pay the driver for the service, the male suspect became irate demanding that the female not pay the driver. At this time, the suspect began to punch the windshield of the cab causing it to crack. As officers spoke to the victim, the suspect fled to a nearby garage, but was located and returned to the scene shortly after. The suspect was observed to have a laceration on his finger and appeared to be intoxicated.

Officers arrested 29-year-old Ian Titcomb of Norwood and charged him with Malicious Destruction of Property.
