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

Breaking & Entering – Residence (2)

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.
