An attack that took place on the MBTA's Red Line was recorded and uploaded to YouTube by a passenger. In the video, a woman on the train begins yelling at a man who allegedly stepped on her dog while trying to sit down. The woman then threatens that she is going to hit the passenger before she gets off at her stop.
As the video continues, the woman continues threatening the man before she follows through and begins punching the man. The MBTA Transit Police have spoken to the man and he does not wish to press charges.
However, the woman in the video has turned herself in and will be summoned to appear in court. Police report the woman will be charged with assault and battery and disorderly conduct.
