Officers drove down Harding St and located a man, later identified as Sergio Kristoff, who matched the description given by the witness. When Kristoff saw the police car, he immediately reversed direction and started walking the other way.

The porch had a “no trespassing” sign. Officers spoke with the property manager, who confirmed that no one was allowed on the porch.
Kristoff was placed under arrest for trespassing and transported to the police station. A search incident to arrest revealed multiple cell phones, a wallet, change, and a small amount of marijuana. After looking at the security cameras at the Worcester Ice Rink, officers saw Kristoff break the car window, enter the car, and then walk away.
