TPD Investigating Assault at MBTA Shawmut.

Assault Investigation
On June 4, 2014 at approximately 12:42 PM Transit Police officers working in Area 3 received a radio call to respond to Shawmut MBTA station for a person possibly stabbed. Multiple Transit Police units responded and were met by several witnesses, however officers could not locate a victim. Shortly thereafter Transit Police detectives located two teenaged males at different locations, apparently suffering from NON life threatening stab wounds. One male victim was located in the vicinity of Leslie Street in Dorchester and the second male victim in the vicinity of Dorchester and Welles Avenue. Preliminary investigation suggests the incident occurred on the southbound platform and may have originated on a Red Line train.

Both males have been transported to local area hospitals for treatment. Transit Police detectives are currently investigating the facts and circumstances surrounding the incident.
