Two of three men who smashed a man with their skateboards outside the Haymarket-station Dunkin' Donuts last night tried to use their boards to outrace pursuing police officers, but failed.
Police say that around 7:25 p.m., the skater boys attacked a 53-year-old man who accidentally bumped into one of them outside the Dunkin' Donuts at the station. They then took off towards the Garden, with police quickly on their tail, thanks to an alert MBTA bus driver who pointed them out.
The victim was taken to Mass. General; his injuries are not considered life threatening, police say.
