MBTA Transit Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man they say cracked a bus window after being asked to wear a mask if he wanted to board.

On Sunday, April 17, around 12:49 p.m., a bus driver was picking up passengers on Massachusetts Avenue and asked the man in question to wear a mask. The man refused, and the bus driver told him he couldn’t get on the bus, according to a press release.

“This apparently angered the male subject and he kicked the bus front door window causing a spider web crack,” police said. “The bus had to be removed from service.”
