An apparent carjacking at Boylston and E Howell ended only minutes — and a few blocks — later at Pine and Belmont Thursday night. We’re still collecting information and haven’t confirmed details but, according to police dispatch radio, a woman reported her white Acura had been stolen just before 9p by a man claiming to have a weapon. The car crashed only minutes later a few blocks away at Belmont and Pine. A medic response was underway as of 9:05p.
The suspect was in custody at the scene. We’ll update this post when we learn more.
Thanks to neighbor Trenton Garris for the photo from the scene.
