B&E Suspect Arrested after Being Found in Victim’s Home

Yesterday evening, Thursday, 6/17/10, officers from Special Operations were on patrol in the area of East Cottage and Norfolk streets when they observed one male chasing another.

Officers stopped the two individuals to further investigate and requested B-2 units to the scene. Officers interviewed the two parties and determined that the victim came back home and noticed that his kitchen window was open. The victim, knowing that he had left his window open, walked to the rear hallway and there observed the suspect in the enclosed area. The suspect, at that time, fled out of the door and the victim pursued until both parties were stopped by officers.

The suspect, Freddy Martinez, 46, of Boston was arrested and charged with Breaking and Entering in the Daytime.
