Around 3:30 p.m. on Friday, a woman was riding the Orange Line when two guys, one white, the other black, got into an argument that escalated with the white guy physically attacking the black one:
The aggressor pushed/threw the victim on top of me as I was sitting and started punching him. My glasses were broken and head scraped in the process. The crowd eventually pulled the aggressor off. I asked bystanders to take pictures of the assaulter, but didn't see anyone doing so, so I (a 5'4" woman) started taking my own closeups. I guess he didn't like that, because he called me a liberal cunt and shouted he was glad it's Trump's America.
Strangely he didn't try to grab my phone though.
He got off at State Street and got away. Meanwhile the victim was busy calling the cops. Out of a train car full of people, I was the only one who stayed to give a statement to the police, and the victim had to call the police himself.
I'm super pissed off, partly for myself but also for the main victim (intended target).
If he looks familiar, contact Transit Police detectives at 617-222-1000.
