Daily Dose of Great Police Work: Officers Arrest Suspect for Breaking and Entering in Roxbury with Help from BPD K-9 Rocky


At about 3:40 AM on Saturday, June 30, 2018, officers from District B-2 (Roxbury) responded to a radio call for a breaking and entering in progress in the area of Tetlow Street. Upon arrival, officers were approached by a female victim who reported that an unknown male had entered her apartment, disrobed, and entered her bedroom. In fear, the victim and her roommate fled the apartment and contacted 911. 

Due to the nature of the call and the high likelihood that the suspect was still inside the apartment, officers requested a K-9 unit to respond. Upon arrival, K-9 Rocky and his police officer handler entered the building, announced their presence, and advised any suspects to make themselves known. When they received no response, K-9 Rocky entered the residence and alerted on a bedroom door. The officer opened the door to find the suspect with a blanket over him. The officer ordered the suspect multiple times to show his hands, but the suspect refused, placing them further underneath the blanket. At this time, the officer, assisted by K-9 Rocky, advanced into the room and secured the suspect, later identified as 23-year-old Ndifreke Inyang of Roxbury. Officers arrested Inyang and charged him with Breaking and Entering and Resisting Arrest.
