At least one arrest was made and a police officer was injured outside of Newbury Comics on Newbury Street this afternoon during an autograph signing, police said.
Boston police responded to a group of individuals who were climbing a fire escape in the back of the building, Boston police spokesman David Estrada said.
Rapper and record producer Tyler, the Creator was slated to sign autographs at the store today, according to the store’s website.
Guillermo Antonini, a Boston University student, said a crowd gathered at the store for the signing and someone apparently called police. Police came to disperse the crowd and Antonini said he saw a young woman being arrested.
One police officer suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to a local hospital after responding to the incident, Estrada said. No additional details on the officer's injuries were immediately available.
