A 14-year-old student who was punched, robbed and warned not to snitch by two classmates at the Ruggles stop on the Orange Line around 2 p.m. yesterday thought he'd managed to escape them by making his way to the Cambridgeside Galleria.

But, he told police, the two - and an older guy - were waiting for him when he left the mall around 5:40 p.m. and they jumped him again, stole his cell phone and threatened to "drop him" in class if he told anyone what had happened.

MBTA Transit Police report arresting one of the classmates and the older teen on a Green Line shuttle bus at North Station.

Another witness told police Le hit his wife in the head, knocked her to the ground and then dragged her by her arm. When she realized no one in the surrounding area was going to help the woman, the witness confronted Le and asked him to stop, but he allegedly waved her off, saying the victim was his wife.

AppleFoot reports the Sears at the CambridgeSide Galleria has already put up Christmas trees - with lights and ornaments.

Or maybe they forgot to take down their displays from the '80s - because they are also selling leg warmers.
