Transit Police are looking for a guy they say has held up the Fresco flower stand on the Dartmouth Street side of Back Bay station twice this week.

The guy made off with cash in afternoon heists on both Monday and Wednesday. On Monday, he motioned as if he had a gun. He's also wanted for possibly menacing other people in the station.

He's described as Hispanic, about 22, 5'8" to 5"10" and thin. He has a tattoo behind one of his ears.

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

Fed up bus passengers moving a car in the Back Bay

Nate Fedor, who watched the whole thing unfold, reports that when a charter bus got stuck trying to turn from Dartmouth Street onto Beacon shortly after 10 a.m. and then just sat there for about 15 minutes, passengers who could wait no longer finally got out of the bus and picked it up and moved it about two feet, just enough for their driver to maneuver the bus onto Beacon.

Not everybody was impressed, at least not by the bus driver. Gerald Burke wrote:

Photo from last week's robbery.

The Eastern Bank branch at 155 Dartmouth St. was held up around 2:50 p.m. by a white man in a gray hoodie, a ball cap and sunglasses. Police suspect it's the same guy who robbed the branch last week because he has very big ears.

As he did last week, the robber presented a note, then grabbed it back when he got money. He did not show a weapon.

Wanted man

The Eastern Bank branch at 155 Dartmouth St. was held up around 12:15 p.m. by a man who showed a note, but no gun.

He's described as being in his mid 20s, 5'6" to 5'8" with very short hair with just a touch of gray, a light goatee - and very large ears. He was wearing an over-sized, purplish L.L. Bean sweatshirt, white sneakers and a burgundy Nike baseball cap.

An Orange Line train was briefly held at Back Bay for a search; he was not found on the train and service resumed.

Around 6:15 p.m. right at Boylston and Dartmouth. BFD responded quickly to douse the fetid fire, although not before some of the smoke wafted down to the platforms of the Copley T station, worrying some riders.

Fire officials reassured the T that the smoke posed no threat to train service. Of course, this being the Back Bay, the burning trash was special. One Green Line rider reported: "Smelled like incense burning."

A small evening gathering at the Fairmont Copley Plaza on Feb. 25 created gridlock on surrounding streets and earned the hotel a stern rebuke from the Boston Licensing Board when members heard a hotel manager pooh-poohed a request from a police sergeant to do something about the mess:
