Altercation on Route 23 bus in Dorchester.

On December 6, 2013 at approximately 4:30 pm Transit Police officers from Area 3 received a radio call to respond to Washington and Park Street's (Dorchester) for an unknown disturbance on an MBTA Route 23 bus. Upon arrival officers observed several individuals outside of the bus who appeared to have been involved in an altercation. Officers located an individual who had sustained a NON life threatening slash wound to the back of the neck. Officers also located a victim who apparently had bleach thrown on them. The victim of the slashing was transported to a local area hospital for treatment. The second individual was treated and released on scene by Boston EMS.
