How much longer must we endure this Occupy crime wave?
A man who told MBTA Transit Police he is living in the Occupy Boston encampment was arrested Sunday after he allegedly threatened to stab a man near the South Station bus terminal.
The victim, whose name was not released, told police he was standing outside the terminal around 5:20 p.m. with his girlfriend when the suspect, Christian Boucher, started “checking her out,’’ according to a transit police report.
“Hey, mommy, you free?” Boucher allegedly said to the woman. He also asked the man if his girlfriend – who is also his fiancee — was working as a prostitute, police said. When the man told Boucher to stop harassing him and his girlfriend, Boucher allegedly pulled out a folding knife.
“According to the victim, the suspect then took out a silver knife and brandished the weapon toward him and stated he was a Latin King and was not to be messed with or he would ‘stab him up,’” according to the transit police report.
The man and woman ran to the commuter rail section of South Station and alerted a transit police officer. Police located Boucher waiting for a bus to New York City.
Amusingly, the headline at the link calls this criminal a “resident” of Occupy Boston. How can someone be a “resident” of anything when they’re living on the street?
