Boston woman Assaults elderly woman at Harvard MBTA
On November 2, 2018 at approximately 5PM Transit Police officers assigned to the North District received a radio call to respond to the MBTA's Harvard Sq. station for a report of an Assault. Upon arrival officers were met by the victim who relayed the following: The female victim, who is 71 years of age, entered onto a crowded Red Line train car. All the seats were occupied with several other passengers standing. The victim observed a female, later identified as Jada Campbell, 23, of Boston occupying a seat and Campbell's purse taking up another whole seat. The victim politely asked Campbell to hold her purse so the seat could free up and the victim could sit down. Campbell refused to do so. The victim then handed the purse to Campbell and was about to take a seat. Campbell became enraged and physically threatened to harm the victim. The victim now in fear for her safety attempted to move away from Campbell. At this time Campbell stood up and with a closed fist struck the victim in the back of her head.
Officers placed Campbell into custody, after a struggle, for Assault & Battery on a Person Over 60, Intimidation of Witness (Campbell threatened victim/witnesses for speaking to TPD) and Resisting Arrest. Campbell was transported to TPD HQ for the arrest booking process.
