OMGPD: The Boy Who Cried Assault

Patch's weekly compilation of some of the more unusual police reports from around the Boston area. An arrest does not indicate a conviction.

Man Impersonates Police Officer 
A Centerville man was arrested Oct. 16 after allegedly impersonating a police officer in a Newton Centre parking lot. According to reports, a witness told police that he pulled into the municipal parking lot on Langley Road Tuesday night, Oct. 16 when a man wearing a neon green vest stepped in front of his vehicle and approached the driver's side window. The driver said the man in the vest stated he was a police officer and reached into the car and mumbled something incoherent. 

Once the driver questioned the man's status as a police officer, the man in the vest began to back away. When police arrived, they found the man and identified him as Willie Gill, 49, of 44 Midway Drive. Gill was arrested for impersonating a police officer and disorderly conduct. http://patch.com/A-yCvV

More Proof Required 
A Hamblin Lane resident in Sudbury called 911 on Wednesday, Oct. 18 after seeing a Sudbury police cruiser outside her window and an officer at the door. Despite the marked cruiser in plain site, the resident wanted assurance that the officer at the door was legitimate. According to Lt. Scott Nix, the officer was making a follow-up visit regarding a previous circumstance. http://patch.com/A-yKBV

The Boy Who Cried Assault 
Police were called to the Convenient 38 in Woburn on Friday, Oct. 12 for a report of an assault. According to police, a woman stated she was in line with her three-year-old son, holding his hand, when the toddler shouted “he punched me, he punched me.” The child told his mother that one of four teenaged boys leaving the store had hit him in the face. Police spoke to the youths, who denied touching the boy. The responding officer told the woman that it was “highly unlikely” that a teenager would hit a toddler holding his mother’s hand and the woman agreed. http://patch.com/A-yCMP

Solo Hide and Seek

Police quickly caught up with the suspect and found him sitting on a gravestone. He told police he was playing hide and seek in the cemetery, but police did not see anybody else playing the game. http://patch.com/A-yHLj
