Hingham: Homeless man with duffle bag causes concern at theater and restaurant

Thursday night, Hingham Police responded to a report of suspicious activity inside the Patriot Cinema Complex movie theater on Shipyard Drive.

Just after 5:30 p.m., police were told that a man carrying a large duffle bag was in the theater, but he left before officers arrived.

The man was described as white, possibly in his 40′s, with short hair, wearing a dark colored winter jacket and carrying a large black duffle bag. As a precaution an officer was posted at the theater for the remainder of the evening.

At 10:40 p.m. workers at a nearby restaurant in the Shipyard called police to report the man had entered the restaurant.

Officers confronted the man, who admitted to having entered the theater, and determined that he was a 44 year old homeless man previously from Roxbury. He was examined by paramedics and ultimately taken to the hospital for evaluation.

About David Skill

Dave Skill’s radio career began in the fall of 1964 when he arrived on the campus of Holy Cross College in Worcester, MA. Dave barely got his bags unpacked when he paid a visit to WCHC, the campus radio station. And, before he knew it, he was spending so much time as a disc jockey and news writer/reporter, it seemed like he was majoring in “radio” and minoring in academics at “The Cross”. As you might imagine, his grades reflected it! During his junior and senior years, he also worked weekends in news and as a disc jockey at WNEB, the CBS radio affiliate in Worcester at the time.
