On November 16, 2021 at approximately 8AM Transit Police officers assigned to the Central District were alerted to a disturbance inside the Women's restroom at the MBTA's South Station Commuter Rail. Officers immediately responded to that area and upon arrival observed several parties arguing with one another. Officers separated those involved and did their best to ascertain the issues. Apparently the incident began in the women's restroom over a Luis Vuitton bag, running water and a pair of sunglasses. Each party, a 27 year old and a 60 year old both from Boston, accused the other of initiating the confrontation and of being assaulted. Officers discovered one of the parties, the 27 year old, had several warrants for her arrest issued out of Somerville District Court for Assault & Battery with a Dangerous Weapon, Assault & Battery and Disorderly Conduct. Officers placed her into custody for the warrants and transported her to TPD HQ for the arrest booking process.
