On Friday night, an MIT student punched a hole in a Baker House stairwell window. According to MIT Police Sergeant Amoroso, the individual was transported to Cambridge Hospital and no charges were filed, with further disciplinary action up to the administration. A trail of blood led from Baker, to a bathroom in the Student Center, to the corner of Ames and Amherst through the basement of the Infinite.



The Green Building at MIT was lit with a ribbon in the colors of the Boston Marathon on the night of April 20 in tribute to victims of the bombing.

A taxi driver crashed into a light pole in front of Building 34 on Saturday afternoon. The driver told a Cambridge Police officer (pictured) that he swerved to avoid a head-on collision when a car, travelling in the opposite direction, tried to pass another car. Vassar Street only has one lane in each direction at the site of the crash.




A Cambridge Bomb Squad officer attempts to disable a device placed on Kresge Field on the morning of April 24. The device was, in fact, a cherry-bomb-shaped concrete block advertising for this weekend’s annual DTYD party hosted by the Burton 3rd Bombers.
