Boston Police report arresting two teens, one 15, the other 16, they say were unsuccessful in repeated attempts to stab each other in the parking lot of the McDonald's at 1312 Hyde Park Ave. before officers arrived yesterday afternoon.
Police say the two squared off around 4:05 p.m. but that officers arrived not long after because an off-duty officer saw the two trying to stab each other and called it in.
Police add the off-duty officer grabbed the 15-year-old until on-duty officers arrived. The older teen ran away, but was captured a few blocks away, police say, adding the two were both charged with being delinquent for assault by means of a dangerous weapon.
This is the same McDonald's where an officer trying to get some unruly students from nearby Roxbury Prep out may have used racial slurs last month. The officer was put on leave pending an investigation.
At a meeting of the Hyde Park Neighborhood Association last night, police said they could not discuss the case because it was still under investigation.
