|Transit Police/Marc Sico|
On March 13th, 2011 in the early morning hours Transit Police officers assigned to Area 4 were patrolling through Back Bay MBTA station when their attention was drawn to 3 males who were viciously attacking a homeless male victim. The male assailants were punching and kicking the victim, upon seeing the police they immediately fled out of the station onto Darthmouth Street. As officers were rendering aid to the victim he informed them he was sleeping when suddenly the assailants were punching and kicking him in the face to wake him up. Victim stated he had no prior conflict with his attackers and did not understand why they attacked him. Apparently, viciously attacking a defenseless sleeping male was not enough for the group. Shortly after the assault in Back Bay station Boston Police responded to the corner of Darthmouth and St. James Street to meet two victims who were also viciously assaulted in an unprovoked attacked. The two victims also suffered the onslaught of punches and kicks about their body.
Transit and Boston Police conducted a coordinated area search for the assailants, Transit Police officers observed two males fitting the description on Boylston Street and stopped them to further investigate. Both males were positively identified by the victims as their attackers. Transit Police arrested both males, later identifed as Marc Sico

This morning, September 28th, 2012 members of the Transit Police Department arrested Sico at his residence in Medford,Ma. Sico will appear before a Judge in Boston Municipal Court sometime this afternoon.
