BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Three people were arrested after beating and robbing MBTA riders with a crowbar Thursday evening, Transit Police said.

Police said the first assault happened on a train at the Harvard Square MBTA station at around 5 p.m. A man told officers he was attacked by three males and one female, with one of the attackers armed with a crowbar.

According to police, the alleged attackers went to Park Street Station and boarded a Green Line trolley, where they assaulted and robbed a second victim on the way to Kenmore Station. The group allegedly threatened commuters with violence while onboard the train.

"The marauding group continued to travel to Fenway where they robbed and beat another victim, on the platform, with a crowbar causing facial injuries to the victim," Transit Police said in a statement.

Police said the group then fled towards Brookline. Officers searched the area and arrested 25-year-old Parrish Jones of Dorchester, 21-year-old William Windham of Brockton, and a 16-year-old girl from Dorchester.

All three face charges of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon causing bodily injury, assault and battery, and armed robbery.
