A group of juveniles in Boston arrested for two recent attacks, including a racially motivated assault, have also been accused of attacking two Suffolk University students walking through the Boston Common on Wednesday evening.
This week's alleged incident occurred near the Earl of Sandwich restaurant at approximately 6:30 pm Wednesday. Suffolk University said one of the students was punched by one of the juveniles, who were about 11 to 14 years of age.
Boston police officers said they've identified two minors involved in an attack, one of whom will be summoned to court, according to local outlet WCVB.
Authorities noted that the 11-year-old girl is too young to be charged under state law and that the 13-year-old boy will be summoned to juvenile court.
According to CBS Boston, the students told police they witnessed five kids harassing a woman and her child. When the college students intervened to help, they said were attacked. Police said the girl began throwing punches and allegedly broke one student's glasses. One of the students was able to record footage of the latest attack and that's how Boston police were able to identify the girl who threw the punches. Because of her age, she will be summoned but not formally charged.
Police said they're part of the group that attacked a 20-year-old Hispanic woman in Downtown Crossing and harassed patrons at the McDonald's in Roxbury.
As for the initial unprovoked attack, five juveniles were arrested and charged after a large group of black teenagers assaulted a Hispanic woman for wearing a "black" hairstyle. On April 18, just before 7 pm, Boston officers responded to the area of Winter and Washington Street for an in-progress assault and battery situation.
The police report states that the assailants punched, kicked, and stomped on the unnamed victim numerous times during the attack. The victim, who identifies as Hispanic, told police that the attackers called her "a white b*tch with braids."
Police said the same group of young offenders threw rocks and bottles Sunday at customers at a McDonald's. An 81-year-old man, who was inside and pelted with whipped cream, said he thinks the kids terrorizing Boston are "unstoppable."
According to WCVB, the crimes have frustrated police, who under law, cannot charge children under the age of 12. Boston Mayor Michelle Wu insisted that the city is working closely with state agencies to ensure children in the city of Boston and their families are being provided with the necessary support services.
The state's Department of Children and Families is also investigating.
However, as the daylight attacks continue in recent weeks, some of the city's residents are taking extra precautions out of fear of being the next victims.
