Transit Police report arresting a man with a knife and two egg-tossing teens at Ashmont station last night in what quickly, if only briefly, turned into a melee for which Transit Police requested aid from BPD.
Police say officers responded to the station around 9:30 p.m. after a woman reported a bunch of teens were throwing eggs at her and her children.
Officers approached the juvenile whom the reporting party identified as the main aggressor and observed a bowl of eggs near him as well as several broken eggs in the immediate area. The juvenile, 16, of Dorchester, provided a false name and was non-compliant with the officers. Ultimately the juvenile assaulted the officer and as the officers were attempting to place him into custody a crowd had gathered around the officers.
Another male juvenile, 16, of Dorchester, in his attempts to interfere with the officers was also placed into custody. During this time another adult male, later identified as Aaron Maloney-Callender, 29 of Mattapan, also interjected himself and displayed a knife at the officers. Officers engaged in a struggle with Maloney-Callender and ultimately were able to subdue him.
Maloney-Callender was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, police say.
