BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Transit Police arrested two juveniles Thursday after they allegedly robbed a woman at the Andrew MBTA stop.

Officers initially responded to the Andrew station after getting reports of a disturbance. When they arrived, they found a woman who told officers she had just been assaulted and robbed by a group of kids.

The victim, a 26-year-old woman, told officers that the thieves took her purse, credit cards, and other belongings and then fled onto an outbound Red Line train. She gave the officers a short description of the suspects.

With the victim's description, the officers went to the JFK/UMass Red Line stop and were able to identify and detain the suspects. The victim then positively identified the two juveniles and they were placed under arrest.

This was the second arrest at the JFK/UMass station in the last week after a man was arrested for alleged assault on another passenger on Friday, March 4.
