State and Boston Police have flooded the area along Massachusetts Avenue between Beacon Street and Commonwealth Avenue, searching for a short, stocky Hispanic man in a beanie who they say tried to ram a state trooper at a traffic stop, got boxed in, then ran away. Police responded to break-in reports not long after at different locations, including 479 Beacon St. and 363 Marlborough St. and to reports of a man running through alleys in the area.

Around 10:20 p.m., police set up a perimeter at the Back Bay MBTA station, in case he tried to flee on the T.
