Transit Police report arresting a woman they say attacked and robbed an elderly man Monday afternoon on Washington Street near the Nubian Square bus station, then sauntered onto a T bus - only to be promptly pulled off by cops alerted by bystanders.
Police say that around 1:30 p.m., Malina Stacy, 25, went up to an 84-year-old man in a wheelchair on Washington Street near the Nubian Square bus station.
Stacy requested the victim give her some money. When the victim informed Stacy he did not have money to give her she responded by closed fisted striking him in the face and head and removing money from the victim's jacket pocket. Stacy then fled into Nubian Sq. Station and boarded an MBTA bus. Concerned citizens who observed the robbery flagged down Transit Police officers.
Police say that officers recovered what money the man did have from Stacy. She was charged with unarmed robbery and assault and battery on an elderly person, police say.
