MBTA employee prevents fleeing felon's escape.

David Smith
On February 4, 2015 at approximately 9am Transit Police officers working in Area 2 received a radio call to respond to the MBTA Maverick Sq. station for a report of an unarmed robbery. Upon arrival the officer was met by the victim as well as an MBTA employee who relayed the following: the victim, a 66 year old female, was seated on an outbound Blue Line train with her purse directly next to her. As the train pulled into Maverick Sq. a male, later identified as David Smith, 28, of Winthrop rose from his seat and forcefully grabbed the victim's purse and fled off of the train. The victim began yelling for help and pursued Smith. As Smith was fleeing through the station an observant, on duty, MBTA employee stepped into Smith's path and physically prevented him from escaping.

Smith was placed into custody and transported to Transit Police HQ for the arrest booking process. It is expected Smith will be arraigned sometime today in East Boston District Court for Unarmed Robbery of an Elderly Person.
