WESTFIELD, Mass. (The Westfield News) – A city man was arrested yesterday morning on charges of unarmed burglary and larceny under $250.
Daniel Loomis, 24, was placed under arrest at 3:13 a.m. Tuesday after police received a call from a Franklin Street woman who said she was awakened in bed by someone reaching over her body and into her purse.
The victim said that the person promptly grabbed a black backpack and left the residence when she awoke, and that the robber had bushy brown hair, was wearing a black t-shirt and possibly blue jeans, along with the backpack.
Soon after, Officer Jared Rowe encountered a man who fit the description described by the victim on Franklin Street, while Officer Jason Perron proceeded to bring the victim to Rowe’s location to identify the man, who turned out to be Daniel Loomis.
Officers searched Loomis’ backpack and discovered an item belonging to the victim, and promptly placed him under arrest on charges of unarmed burglary and larceny under $250. He was then taken to the Westfield Police Station and booked.
