On November 5, 2013 at approximately 10:50 a.m. Transit Police officers from Area 3 received a radio call for a robbery in progress at Andrew Sq. MBTA station. Upon arrival officers were met by a female victim who pointed out a male, later identified as Chino Young, 21 of Brockton, and informed the officers Young had stolen her Apple iPad. The victim further explained she was seated on a bench on the northbound platform and reading from her iPad. Young sat next to her and as a train pulled into the station Young forcefully grabbed the iPad from her hands and fled up the stairs.
