Biohazard bag

A parking incident in Hyde Square ended with someone leaving a clear biohazard bag — with what looked like a letter inside — on a windshield.

An out-of-the-neighborhood visitor driving a Jeep Liberty told police she found the disturbing message around 8:49 p.m. Tuesday on Oakview Terrace, according to a police report.

Cops asked her if she was having problems with anyone and she told the following story: A man trying to park his light gray Honda backed into her Jeep. She told police she asked the driver to be more careful in the future and the man began yelling.

“I didn’t do any damage to your car,” the woman reported him as saying, “I use the Braille method to park.”

She reported walking away from the man, whom she described as white, in his 40s or 50s with brown hair.

The Hazardous Materials Unit and firefighters tested the bag and contents with “measurement devices,” the police report said, before deciding it was safe to be taken away for further testing.
