There have been a rash of street robberies in Brookline of recent. A Quincy man was arrested in connection to an armed robbery on Freeman Street and St. Paul Street in January. In December, three men were indicted for armed robbery near the Boston University campus in September and October.
This week, there was a robbery in which the victim was stabbed and beaten. The suspects were arrested and both Brookline Police and Boston University Police have stepped up their presence in town.
But have these robberies changed the way you go about your daily life?
There is a petition addressing some community concerns.
Do you think the town needs more police around? What about more security cameras? Do you stay indoors at night? Are you worried about your safety in town?
