Boston Police District A-1 provided North End / Waterfront residents an update on recent neighborhood crime incidents, summarized below, at the October 2018 North End Public Safety Meeting.

Crime in District A-1 is down 1% YTD.

Breaking & Entering – Residence (2)
– 4 Garden Court: An AC unit was pushed out of a window in order to gain entry into an apartment, within which the suspect(s) proceeded to eat some of the food located therein, leaving a food-related mess in the process.

– 5 Stillman Place: Some items were stolen from an apartment after the death of a tenant. The decedent’s family was able to recover some of the stolen property. A suspect has been identified. Detectives to follow-up.

– 205 Endicott Street: A roommate’s friend allegedly stole a laptop computer.

Larceny from Motor Vehicle (1)

– Kidnapping / Attempted / Child Endangerment / Warrant (Faneuil Hall): A male suspect approached a 13-year-old girl and attempted to buy and kidnap her (offering cash to her parents in the process). This incident received press / news coverage.
