Neighbor Lina wrote to warn us about an unsavory individual on North Beacon Hill. She saw a white
van SUV pull over in front of her and park near Daejeon Park. The windows on both sides of the van SUV were rolled down, and inside was a white, baseball-cap-wearing, masturbating male. When Lina returned with a camera to get a picture of the van’s SUV’s license plate for the police, it was gone. She reports that the license plate started with a B and ended with an H.

There have been more recent sightings of the serial masturbator/flasher in the North Beacon Hill area — at least eight reported incidents so far, we’re told. He appears to still be driving the newer-looking navy blue [Chevy?] truck with tinted windows as previously described, and is obscuring the license plate in an attempt to elude identification. If you spot a truck matching this description, especially if you notice the license plate is hidden, please consider notifying 911.

Aaron G. was robbed Sunday night. He wrote in with this account and asked us to share it:
I was on my way home from the Valero store around 11:30 pm on Sunday night when two guys approached me from behind. They asked for my bags repeatedly before shoving me and demanding that I give it to them. Once handing it over, they started screaming at me, asking what else I had on me. They reached into my jacket pocket, grabbed my cigarettes, took my wallet from my back pocket, and ran off as a car approached. I chased them down to the Shell station where they jumped into a car waiting with a few other guys in it and they peeled off.
BE ON THE LOOKOUT! This happened near 15th and College. They were young, maybe 18 or 19 years old, black men, Ethiopian accents. Hooded sweatshirts, and they seemed nervous.
