A 55-year-old man was robbed while walking home from the grocery store on the night of October 8.

The victim said he was walking along Freeman Street, when a white BMW approached him, stopped, and two men got out.

They approached the victim and began beating him up.

Then they reached into his pocked and removed his cell phone, camera, and glasses. They got back into the car and fled.

Sibling Spat

Two brothers got into a fight in their Green Street apartment on the night of October 10.

The older brother then struck his sibling with a closed fist about the face, eye, and mouth causing redness, swelling, and bruising.

According to the victim, his older brother had been screaming violently earlier in the day and was walking around the apartment destroying things including breaking the victim’s bed.

The unknown man grabbed his wallet, but not before uttering, “You can’t sleep here,” and fled the scene.
