Boston police arrested nine teenagers on Monday in connection with an assault on a couple in the Four Corners area of Dorchester that reportedly involved at many as 15 teens.

Fox 25 reported that a man and a woman were at a bus stop in the area on Monday night when they were attacked by a large group of teens that “consisted mostly of young girls between the ages of 13 and 16.” The woman claims she was kicked into a fence and hit in the head with a shoe while the man was punched a number of times as the teens robbed him. The report also said one of the girls spat on the officers who were arresting her.

Police have increased their presence in the area and the nine teens who were arrested appeared in juvenile court on Tuesday.
