NorthEndWaterfront.com reports on a North End community meeting that focused on both the most recent sexual attack and a series of incidents during the recent St. Anthony's Feast in which festival-goers found themselves under attack:
In an organized series of attacks, out-of-town teens set up feast visitors to be punched and shoved last Friday night at the St. Anthony's Feast. Boston Police believe the kids communicated by texting each other, identifying victims indiscriminately and then hitting them for no other reason than the thrill of assaulting random people. Observers witnessed punching, shoving and pushing in several locations on Endicott Street.
Officers identified suspects from Revere, Everett and Charlestown. Victims of the punches and fights choose not to pursue charges.
Out-of-towners were also blamed for much of the problems at the Mac Miller concert at City Hall Plaza.
