Transit Police report arresting two men they say spent a trip on inbound Orange Line train from Forest Hills "harassing and intimidating" passengers in their car - and attacking one man they spotted attempting to call police.
Police say officers who met the train at Back Bay around 5:45 p.m. on New Year's Eve spotted Tobias Chance, 19, of East Boston and Raashan Severino, 18, of Boston, exit the train, screaming "Number 1!" and pointing at the officers.
At this time a male victim, over 60 years of age, exited the train and informed the officers Chance and Severino were bullying other passengers and Chance physically assaulted him while on board and prevented him from calling police. Upon seeing the victim speak with officers Chance and Severino fled.
Police say the two proved no match in a foot race with officers, who caught up with and arrested them. Chance was charged with assault and battery on an elderly person and witness intimidation. Severino was charged with possession of a Class B drug.
