Three or four persons, "dressed like Harvard students" according to police, went on a drunken tour of Massachusetts Avenue early yesterday morning, causing over $200 damage and some inconvenience to three Cambridge merchants.
City police said that they are attempting to connect several cases of vandalism which occured between 11 p.m. Monday and 2 a.m. yesterday. Eyewitnesses reported that at approximately 11 p.m., a group of four left the Waldorf Cafeteria, one on crutches. The crutch was allegedly used to hammer some letters from a neon sign above the nearby Phillips Book Store.
At about 1:10 a.m., a group of students reportedly moved a ticket dispensing machine in the cafeteria several feet.
Approximately ten minutes later, two persons were seen standing in front of the Arlington Cleaners on the corner of Plympton St. One picked up a loaded trash can and heaved it through the large plate glass window of the store.
