More arrests have been made in an attack on two men outside of Boston's Shawmut MBTA Red Line station this week, police said.
A teenager had been arrested Wednesday for allegedly attacking the two men outside the station on Monday, but, according to police, three more teenagers were arrested Friday afternoon in Dorchester's Harambee Park.
The 15-year-old who was first arrested wasn't identified when police announced the arrest Thursday, but officials had said they expected to make more arrests as the investigation continued. The investigation was still continuing Saturday, when police announced the new arrests.
The assault took place at a bike rack outside Shawmut Station in Dorchester, according to police. A group of teenagers surrounded two men, aged 69 and 47, and demanded they give them money at knifepoint.
