Keeping Boston Safe: BPD Officers Nab Suspect of Housebreaks Red-handed


At about 11:20 AM on Tuesday, July 24, 2018, officers from District D-4 (South End) responded to a call for a man climbing through a first-floor window in the area of 6-10 Blackwood Street. Upon arrival, officers were provided with a photo taken on a cell phone of a suspect climbing through a window at the above location. Officers in the area observed a male fitting the suspect’s description exit a building on Blackwood Street. When officers attempted to stop the suspect, he fled on foot and a brief foot chase ensued. Officers were able to apprehend the suspect at the end of the block near Saint Botolph Street. While speaking with the suspect, officers were approached by a witness who reported having video of the same suspect removing items from another building in the areas several hours before he was stopped. The suspect, identified as 27-year-old Alexis Rodriguez-Perez of Mattapan, was then found in possession of four stolen laptops and other stolen personal items. Officers arrested Rodriguez-Perez and charged him with Breaking and Entering in the Daytime and Buying/Receiving/Concealing Stolen Property.
