Transit Police report they are looking for a guy they say whipped out a taser and used it on somebody who asked him to pull up his mask on a bus at Forest Hills station around 2:10 p.m. on Dec. 24.

Police say Boston EMTs checked out the victim at the scene and that he did not require hospitalization.

After fleeing the bus on the upper busway, the man then pulled his mask up, Transit Police say.

If he looks familiar, contact detectives at 617-222-1050 or send an anonymous text tip to 873873.

Does anyone know the number of 300 dollar citations the Transit Police have issued to passengers not wearing masks? My guess is Charlie Baker will not be happy with the police for ignoring his orders.

I'm at Forest Hills every day. I think we need more police presence. Not just when politicians are campaigning or the next day after a crime happens.

The only Black superhero I've seen in Forest Hills dressed in black.
I was scared to look at his teeth.
