BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The MBTA Transit Police are looking for a person of interest in what they're calling a possible Civil Rights violation. The incident happened on the Red Line between Kendall Square and Park Street Station just before 11:00 AM on Friday.

A woman told police that she was on the train when a man began to lob racial slurs at her and threw a glass bottle in her direction. The woman was with her one-year-old child at the time. Police also released a photo of a person of interest in the case, who is wearing a camo-colored hat, a brown jacket, and a black mask on his chin in the photo circulated by the Transit Police.

Transit Police are asking the public to come forward if they know the man's identity or whereabouts.
