In a statement, Transit Police said officers noticed a shoe print on one of the victim's shirts. The two victims were 53 and 63 years old respectively and did not know Underwood prior to the incident, according to Transit Police.

When officers approached Underwood at the scene, he was reportedly uncooperative and was placed under arrest. The 34-year-old is facing multiple assault charges including assault and battery with dangerous weapon-shod foot on a person over 60.

Transit Police said during the booking process, they discovered Underwood had a warrant out for his arrest on charges of assault and battery and disturbing the peace stemming from New Bedford District Court.
