MBTA transit police are asking for the public's help identifying a man who is wanted in connection with an attempted knife assault on an Orange Line train last month.
Transit police released two photos Friday of the person of interest in the incident at the MBTA's Back Bay station in Boston, and are hoping someone will recognize the man.
According to transit police, around 7:30 p.m. on March 25, the man allegedly threatened and attempted to assault the victim with a knife. The assailant allegedly accused the victim of speaking too loudly.
