UPDATE: Noor ordered held without bail pending a Sept. 17 hearing on violating conditions in his conviction on the attack last year, the DA's office reports.
Transit Police report arresting a Malden man they say began beating another man who wouldn't give him money at the Sullivan Square T stop around 12:15 a.m. today.
Just last month, Mohamed Noor, 28, pleaded guilty to beating a T worker at Roxbury Crossing. He got a 2 1/2 year sentence, but it was suspended on condition he stay away from T stops - and not beat anybody - for four years, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.
According to Transit Police, Noor went up to a man in the Sullivan busway and asked him for money.
The victim informed Noor he did not have any money and upon hearing this Noor began to physically beat the victim knocking him to the ground.
Once on the ground Noor continued his violent assault, fortunately the victim was able to break free and ran to an MBTA bus where a quick acting bus operator was able to close the door behind him preventing Noor, who was in pursuit, from entering. Noor began to pound on the bus demanding the operator open the door. Upon hearing approaching police sirens in the background Noor abandoned his attempt to gain entry and vacated the area.
Police say officers continued to look for him - and found him sitting in a bus about to leave the lower busway, shirtless. He was arrested and charged with unarmed assault with intent to rob. Police say he refused to cooperate at booking and gave several false names, so they added a charge of providing a false name at booking.
His victim was taken to a local hospital for evaluation.
