Bopped by a beer can
This is what happens when you walk down Boylston Street at 3 a.m. on a Sunday: a man said a car whizzed by and tossed a half-full beer can at him and hit him. Police were able to trace the offending car's license plate to a Dedham resident; not clear who was driving: http://patch.com/A-wkxM

The juicer never had a chance
Early Friday, Woburn police were called to Turf Time on Main Street. According to police, an employee reported he left the store to buy coffee. While he was gone, a group playing soccer told him that four females ran into the store, shouted something that sounded like “pina colada!” before pulling a juicer machine off the wall and onto the ground, breaking it. Alas, there was no video surveillance of the incident: http://woburn.patch.com/articles/police-log-four-shouting-women-break-machine
