Revere teen charged in July 2 Silver Line attack

BOSTON, Mass. (WLNE) — The Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office said that a 16-year-old female from Revere was arraigned Sunday in connection with an attack on a woman on a Silver Line bus on July 2.

The juvenile was charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and unarmed robbery.

District Attorney Kevin Hayden said the judge revoked the teenager’s bail 60 days on a pending assault case and set $300 bail on the new case. They ordered the accused to stay away from both the victim and all MBTA property.

Hayden said the attack occurred at around 11 p.m. on July 2.

Video used to identify the accused shows the victim entering a bus and standing near the back door.

Hayden said a group of juveniles is then seen throwing potato chips at and squirting lotion into the victim’s hair.

He added that when the victim appears to move towards one of the juveniles to get them to stop, one of the group pushed her down onto the floor and the others begin punching and kicking her. Some of the juveniles are also seen going through the woman’s bag, with one taking her phone.

The Revere juvenile is accused of striking the victim in the head with closed fists and feet.

Hayden said the group exited the bus at Nubian Station. The victim suffered a bloody nose and facial bruising but did not require hospitalization.

He added that the female juvenile is one of eight apparent juveniles who participated in the attack.

The group was apparently in at the AMC South Bay Center cinema complex before boarding the bus, and theater personnel told the district attorney’s office that a group of juveniles was causing disturbances in the theater earlier that night.
