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.
