Two Medford teens have been charged with the early morning beating of at least
two men, one who is homeless, near Back Bay Station in Boston
yesterday, according to Transit Police.
Marc Sico, of 72 Edwards St., and James J. Marino, of 41 Edward St., both 19, were arrested about 3:15 a.m. Sunday morning and charged with assault and battery with a deadly weapon, to wit a shod foot, according to Transit Police.
Officers spotted them and a third suspect kicking and beating a man near the T station, according to a copy of the police report released by the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority.
When police approached the suspects they fled on foot, according to the report.
Sico and Marino were captured after a brief chase, during which the suspects evaded police in the blocks around Back Bay. The men were arrested on Boylston Street and were charged after the two victims, who authorities did not name, positively identified the teenagers as the people who assaulted them, the report says.
Two more victims reported a similar assault on Dartmouth Street by men who matched the description of Sico and Marino. One later identified the men in the beating.
Boston Police retrieved blood covered shoes and a sweatshirt from the suspects, which was logged into evidence, the report said.
The third suspect, who was described as a white male in his 20s, apparently escaped.
