On Sunday, April 17, 2022, at 5:54 P.M., Somerville Police control received a 9-1-1 call from a female victim (XXXX) reporting a male and a female broke into her vehicle. The victim gave the call taker a clothing description of the female (blue leggings and a black jacket). The victim confronted the couple on Grand Union Blvd where her vehicle was parked and removed several Chick-fil-A gift cards from the female’s hand (Value: $299.50). These gift cards were stolen from the victim’s vehicle.
The male and female took off running on Grand Union Blvd towards Artisan Way. The victim chased after them and was screaming for help, then flagged down Officer Ribeiro and informed her of the incident.
Officer Ribeiro detained a white female wearing blue leggings and a black jacket and identified her as Jessica FILIPOWICH (Defendant). The defendant stated she was alone and denied breaking into the car. Officer Ribeiro asked the defendant where she came from, the defendant replied: “We came from the Mystic Project and we are going to the train station” Officer Ribeiro asked the defendant what do you mean by “We”? The defendant stated she was with her boyfriend “XXXX” who lives in Everett MA.
I responded to the scene and spoke to the victim. She stated she was walking to her vehicle and saw the front passenger side door open, the defendant and a male suspect were reaching inside her vehicle and grabbing items.
I reviewed the surveillance footage and saw the defendant and the male suspect open the front passenger door of the victim’s vehicle, reach inside the vehicle and close the door. I also observed the victim confront the defendant and the male suspect in the middle of the street. The male suspect ran down Grand Union Blvd, entered Saks Fifth Avenue, removed his hat and jacket, and walked out of the store. The suspect walked into the Assembly Row train station at approximately 5:58 P.M.
Based on my observations and the victim’s statement, I placed the defendant under arrest for breaking and entering a vehicle, daytime for felony c.266 S18. The defendant was transported to the Somerville Police headquarters in unit 200, operated by Officer Duval, and was booked by Lieutenant Capasso.
