Transit Police report a man in a hurry to get off the Orange Line at Back Bay yesterday afternoon will now have to make time in his busy schedule to answer a charge of assault and battery at Boston Municipal Court.
Police say the man, 53, shoved a 21-year-old woman out of his way around 4:30 p.m.
The victim requested an apology which was not offered. The victim in turn removed the male's eye glasses from his face and demand he apologize for his actions. As a response the male, with a closed fist, struck the female in the face.
The woman was taken to a local hospital for observation.
