Police say the pair approached the man around 10:30 p.m. on Oct. 16 and asked for a smoke.

When the victim informed the two males he did not smoke the two males began to assault the victim by striking him and kicking him. The two males then fled the station.

Back Bay station has been very busy. Not to long ago a young woman died under mysterious circumstances and a person of interest was arrested. I have seen two transit officers in the afternoon doing a great job keeping boisterous school kids in line. I haven't seen officers at night but I have seen a lot of sketchy characters hanging around the statue of a former civil rights icon in the station.

Wait, what was the last time we prosecuted anyone for asking for a smoke?
