Suspect in punching robbery attack on jewelry vendor at Blue Line stop arrested trying to get on an Orange Line shuttle bus a few days later, police say

Transit Police report arresting one of three people they say waited until a Blue Line train came into Government Center to rob and punch a jewelry vendor there, then jumped on the train to flee, late Saturday night.

Police say two men and a woman approached the jewelry vendor, who has an MBTA permit for her jewelry pushcart, around 11:45 p.m. The men began trying on jewelry and snapping photos of each other, at least until an outbound train came into the station:

The 2 males still wearing the necklaces around their necks began to walk away and were about to board the train without paying for the necklaces. At this time the vendor/victim attempted to prevent them from doing so when the female in the group began to, with a closed fist, strike the victim in the face several times. The trio was able to make good their escape and did not pay for the jewelry.

Police distributed surveillance photos. Around 12:50 p.m. yesterday, a Transit officer working a detail at an Orange Line shuttle-bus stop at Government Center noticed one of the three - Brandon Frazier, 35 - and arrested him on a charge of unarmed robbery.

Innocent, etc.

Drugs fueling this. If the overflow of cocaine and heroin, fentanyl, crystal meth doesn't stop you will NEVER see an end to tents, prostitution, and crimes like this. In fact, you won't even see an end to drug fueled crime and mental illness. In fact, u won't see an end to stressed out emergency rooms, litter on your sidewalks, and drug trafficking and gangs. Wake up.
