Naked Man Grabs at Gun, Pulls Fire Alarm, and Runs Up Mass Ave

At approximately 21:30 hours last night, Boston Police received calls for an emotionally distressed person that had caused a scene in the area of 618 Mass Ave.

Officers arrived and found that the individual had tried to grab the security officer’s firearm, and when he was unsuccessful decided to pull the fire alarm before taking off unclothed and running up Mass Ave.

Several officers were injured in the takedown when he was finally caught on the stretch of Mass and Cass, which are believed to be pepper spray related. The man was taken by EMS to a local area hospital where he was to be evaluated for mental health related issues.
