DA: Girl kicked in leg on the Orange Line innocent bystander in argument over whether one guy stepped on another guy's sneakers
A Charlestown District Court judge set bail at $300 today for Antwan Crawford on charges he kicked an eight-year-old girl at the Community College Orange Line stop last month, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.
According to the DA's office:
Witnesses at the scene reported that, just prior to kicking the child, Crawford had been engaged in a verbal altercation with another passenger whom Crawford apparently believed had stepped on his sneakers. It was in the aftermath of that altercation that the child reported to her mother that Crawford kicked her in the leg. Using her phone, the mother snapped Crawford’s picture, which was recognized by police at Bunker Hill Community College, where Crawford had previously been arrested for trespassing.
In addition to bail, a judge ordered Crawford, 33, of the South End, to stay off the Orange Line until his case is resolved.
