On Tuesday, October 23, at approximately 6:41 p.m., a woman was savagely beaten and robbed by a group of teens on her evening MBTA commute.


According to reports, a violent crew grabbed the victim’s hair, smashed her face against a handrail, and then took her iPhone from her hands on the train as it pulled into the Tufts Medical Center MBTA Station. Officers said they found two knives. Three of the four juveniles pleaded not guilty to charges of unarmed robbery and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
