Four suspects arrested in Broadway Station MBTA assault

Four suspects have been arrested in connection with a violent beating on a Red Line train at Broadway station Sunday night, Transit police said.

Transit police on Friday issued warrants for Michael Davis, 36, of South Boston, Patrick Joyce, 24, of Dorchester, Kristine Mullen, 20, of South Boston, and Kevin McCarthy, 21, of South Boston, for their roles in the assault.

Davis, Joyce, and Mullen were arrested after presenting themselves to Transit police at headquarters on Friday afternoon, officials said. McCarthy turned himself in later Friday night.

All four suspects face charges of assault and battery and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon (a shod foot). They are expected to be arraigned on Tuesday in South Boston District Court, Transit police said in a blog post.

Six suspects — four male and two female — allegedly attacked a man on the T at about 9 p.m. Sunday, said Superintendent-in-Chief Joseph O’Connor, of the Transit police.

A verbal argument with the male victim turned violent as the suspects allegedly began to kick and punch him, Transit police said. When two women on the train tried to intervene, the suspects allegedly attacked them, as well.

Transit police released cellphone video footage of the attack and surveillance photos on their blog on Tuesday, along with descriptions of the attackers.

Both female victims were treated for their injuries at the scene, said O’Connor. The male victim was taken to a local hospital and later released.

The six suspects turned themselves into Transit police at different times on Wednesday, authorities said. They were not charged at that time, and Transit police decided not to pursue charges against the other two suspects, said Transit police Lieutenant Detective Richard Sullivan.
