This past Friday night, around 10:45pm, a woman was walking to her home in City Point when she was approached at the corner of N and 6th by a group of about 5 teenagers wearing bandanas covering their faces. They surrounded her and threatened to shoot her but showed no gun. One of the teens grabbed the victim’s phone from behind. The group then ran off.  BPD are investigating.

If anyone has any information about this incident, they should reach out to Boston Police Department C-6 at 617-343-4730.

Be safe out there, Southie!

      I’ll assume you’re a full grown adult strictly based on the “oldtime” part of your name. That being said, don’t be an a**hole just to be an a**hole. It is pretty gosh darn clear when you are being confronted by a grown adult male VS a teenager.

      Biggest curmudgeon I have ever laid eyes on. Try a different side of the bed tomorrow, will ya?

        No one said they were males. Please try and get up on the non-ignorant / non-sexist side of the bed tomorrow.

          I heard they were actually all identifying as gender-fluid

    I wonder if this the same group of young kids (punks), who live 2 blocks away, that think it’s funny to kick in fence doors, throw garbage at passing cars and drag trash day furniture items into the street?

      I hope that if you know these kids – that you’ve spoken to them and/or gone to their parents about what you’ve seen them doing in your neighborhood

    A physical description of the assaillants would be helpful so we can know who to be on the lookout for.

    • Maureen Dahill October 17, 2018 at 10:36 am - Reply

      The police report only stated teenagers – 13 to 15 years old.

    Ok Roger, next question, what race were they? Didnt mention that in the article..you got the answer to that?..

    • Eleanor October 17, 2018 at 9:18 am - Reply

      I’m sure the people who need to have that information (Police) have it.

    • Roger Glass October 17, 2018 at 2:28 pm - Reply

      Na, I wasn’t there. Sorry

        Well of course you weren’t….you’re ‘Roger Glass’ ..a figment of Marsha’s imagination….you don’t exist.

  5. Oldtimesouthie October 17, 2018 at 8:52 am - Reply

    Its obvious they were teenagers..so its REAL EASY to describe physical characteristics of these MAGGOTS . ” pretty dosh gone clear”..RIGHT.?…

    • Eleanor October 17, 2018 at 9:20 am - Reply

      They had their faces covered so no, it wasn’t real easy to describe their physical characteristics

      Man, you really make us work here. Keep doing you, Oldtimer.

        Ditto. OTS sees things. #commentwhisperer

    TEENAGER, definition ( websters dictionary)”a person between ages 13 to 19 years old”..HUMMM..ever see a 19 year old at 6 ft..i surly have..by the way i think your comment has STUPIDITY all over it..

  7. Oldtimesouthie October 17, 2018 at 9:23 am - Reply

    I think the people who really need the information are the RESIDENTS of SOUTHIE so we can be on the lookout for this roving gang of “TEENAGE MAGGOTS “.

    • Eleanor October 17, 2018 at 10:37 am - Reply

      How are YOU going to be on the LOOKOUT when all you do is sit at home and COMMENT on CIS?? That remark has DUMBNESS all over it

  8. Oldtimesouthie October 17, 2018 at 9:27 am - Reply

    Eleanor, you said they had their faces covered, yet the article claimed they were teenagers, so they knew they were teenagers,but not their race??REALLY…lets get real.

    • Eleanor October 17, 2018 at 10:40 am - Reply

      Mannerisms. language, pitch and tone of voice etc. are all easy to attribute to an age group i.e. teenagers. They never said they didn’t know their race, it simply wasn’t a part of the article.. You brought race into it. You are a Bigot and a racist I guess. May God have mercy on your soul.

      • brian October 17, 2018 at 12:21 pm - Reply

        Asking their race does not make someone racist dumbanora

        • Eleanor October 17, 2018 at 12:54 pm - Reply

          I hope God can find a way to look past your ignorance and forgive you as well Brian (hmmmmm same amount of letters in your name as in the word BIGOT) weird huh! #NOT May God have mercy on your soul as well (if there’s any left after dealing with the other racist)

          Brian? Time to change your tampon, I think.

    • John October 21, 2018 at 7:21 am - Reply

      I agree

    It certainly WOULD have been helpful if the article had mentioned the race of the kids– let’s put political correctness aside –because we’re talking about violence or the threat of violence to our loved ones who have to walk in the area where this happened. I’m not espousing some kind of latent Third-Reich mentality here, merely a certain something that is lacking in society: Common Sense.
    If my wife were walking home from the bus and saw a group of ______(whatever description) kids on or near that corner, it would be helpful to have the description of them so she could avoid them and thus avoid aggravation.

    Acvording to Eleanor if you ask for a descriptiob SEX,AGE,RACE (white,black,Asian Spanish) height,clothing ect..YOUR A RACISTS..sorry Eleanor your ” political correctness ” ..shows your BIGOTRY against someone looking for useful INFORMATION .

    • Eleanor October 17, 2018 at 2:50 pm - Reply

      I did not say anything about SEX or AGE or Height or clothing. Now you are just making things up. You are bearing false witness against your neighbor and therefore broke commandment #9 and LIED. You should go to confession. You have sinned. You are most certainly going to HELL.

    Okay, can’t we all jusy get along? This story is about this brave woman who actually had the strength and the courage to tell her story. Not only are you guys tearing each other apart you’re jumping all over this woman because of her details or lack of. How about we try building people up not tearing them down. Let’s give at least one person one complaint a day.

    • Maureen Dahill October 17, 2018 at 2:21 pm - Reply

      100% agree! It’s a PSA to the neighborhood to be aware. No matter which race, be aware that there are a group of dangerous teenagers acting like punks in the neighborhood. What we should be doing is forming a neighborhood watch – like McGruff the Crime Dog!

    • Eleanor October 17, 2018 at 2:56 pm - Reply

      Nobody said anything about the woman who was the victim here except that CAPS misusing weirdo. He is victim shaming her. The info wasn’t in the article which does not necessarily mean she did not provide it to police. His biasas are astounding.

    Really people….bottom line the Southie we know is not the same – would it be to much to ask for us to keep an eye out for one another and try to be civilized…I wonder what the comments here would be like if the person was related to you – just the thought of being accosted like that would make me nervous…

    • Really? October 22, 2018 at 7:57 am - Reply

      NOT THE SAME? I almost got KILLED by a mob in Southie during the busing because I had a black guy in the back seat of my cab! Walking around Southie was FAR less safe back in the day than it is now. Get real Townies.

    The store on the corner has cameras, so I’m sure they can get a good description of these teenagers if they frequent the area. Probably just some punks.

    So, be on the look out for supposedly teenagers with bandanas covering their face.
    Pretty cut and dry
