MBTA police ID 6 involved in Boston subway brawl

BOSTON (AP) — Transit police in Boston say they have identified six people allegedly involved in a brawl on a subway car last weekend that left three people requiring medical treatment.

A passenger shot video of the fight, which MBTA police have made public. MBA police said Wednesday afternoon no charges had been filed.

One young male victim was taken to a hospital for treatment and two teenage girls from Rhode Island were treated at the scene after the fight inside a Red Line train at about 9 p.m. Sunday.

T police superintendent Joseph O’Connor tells The Boston Globe the male victim was involved in a verbal altercation with the group and the girls intervened to defend him.

Sixteen-year-old Nicole Geraldo of Lincoln, R.I., tells WJAR-TV she and some friends had gone to the Celtics game and the attack was unprovoked.
