Kerry was visiting his wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry, at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Charlestown when State Department security officers saw the man taking pictures of the window in Kerry’s home, calling the Boston Police Department shortly after, Johnson said.

Kerry’s wife was flown to Massachusetts General Hospital from Nantucket in critical condition earlier this month after suffering a seizure. After her condition improved, she was moved to Spaulding to complete her recovery.

Boston police declined to immediately provide information Sunday night, saying the incident’s report was still being drafted.
