TROUBLE ON SUFFOLK RACING DAY
The Massachusetts State Police Gaming Enforcement Unit is investigating two incidents that occurred several minutes apart at Suffolk Downs racetrack on its special live racing day Sunday.
The incidents included a theft of money and a separate attempted robbery.
At approximately 6:20 p.m., a male suspect walked up to a teller window, placed a bag down, and demanded that a teller fill it with money. The teller told another employee to call racetrack security, and the suspect ran away, leaving the bag behind.
Approximately 10 minutes later, at a different teller location, a male suspect grabbed a quantity of money that had briefly been set down on a counter. The suspect then ran off with the money.
A subsequent search of the track and the stable area did not lead to the location of the suspect or suspects. The incidents occurred toward the end of the second of two consecutive days of live thoroughbred racing at the track.
The investigation into the facts and circumstances of both incidents, including whether they are related and the identity of the suspect or suspects, is ongoing. The investigation is being conducted by the State Police Gaming Enforcement Unit with assistance from Boston Police and the Massachusetts Gaming Commission.
LOUSY TIPPER GETS ‘JUGGED’
A Broadway man who makes a living as a delivery driver spotted a customer who is a lousy tipper and allegedly walloped her over the head with a jug of milk.
Around 12:16 a.m. on Saturday, the female victim was standing outside Walgreen’s on Broadway. The suspect was coming out of the store with some groceries, including a jug of milk. He recognized her as a customer he delivers to, and yelled over at her that she was a lousy tipper.
A verbal altercation ensued between the two, and it apparently ended with him tossing the milk jug and hitting her with it.
He was uncooperative with officers at the scene.
Milk was spilled all over the ground at the scene, but no one was reported to have cried over it.
