The FBI Boston Division, the Boston Police Department (BPD), and the Boston Fire Department (BFD)-Fire Investigation Unit are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying two men who were seen around the intersection of Tremont Street and Bromfield Street in Boston, Massachusetts, on Sunday, May 31, 2020, between 9:30 p.m. and 10:00 p.m.

Investigators would like to speak with them because they may have information relevant to the ongoing investigation into the vandalism and arson of a Boston Police Department cruiser.

On the night of Sunday, May 31, 2020, at approximately 9:25 p.m., two Boston Police officers responded to a call for assistance and parked their vehicle in the area of the Beantown Pub near Suffolk University.

Shortly thereafter, several individuals vandalized the cruiser, breaking its windows and eventually setting it on fire.

Unknown individual #2 is believed to be a Hispanic male, approximately 5’8” to 6’0" tall with a medium build. He wore a black T-shirt, black shorts, and a black hat.
