Update: One arrest made.
Transit Police have released photos of one of the two men they say repeatedly kicked and punched an elderly man around 9 pm. on Saturday on a Red Line platform at Park Street.
Police say the attack was unprovoked:
They knocked him down, then kicked him and punched him some more. They also spit on the victim.
The victim suffered cuts and bruises, but declined medical attention, police say.
If he looks familiar, contact detectives at 617-222-1050 or send an anonymous text tip to 873873.

If they are caught will they be arrested or summonsed into court. The courts are shut down and police officers are being instructed not to arrest anyone for fear of contamination. I was talking to a T-cop who told me they haven't arrested anyone the past four days.
What could possess someone to do such a thing? I hope they catch his ass...unfortunately he'll probably get Massachusetts famous slap on the wrist.
What possible excuse could he have? The old man was giving him a hard time?
