Posted: Updated:
DORCHESTER, Mass. (WHDH) -  Nine teenagers are under arrest after they allegedly beat up a man and woman waiting for a bus Monday night in Dorchester.

The woman told police she was attacked from behind by a female around 9:30 p.m.

After the initial attack a group of 10-15 more young teens began attacking the couple and stealing their belongings.

When the group was focused on the man the woman was able to get across the street and call for help.

“It’s a place where everybody walks, every couple, every elderly, it’s not cool,” one man said.

The teens, all between the ages of 13 and 16, face assault and robbery charges.

One of the teens is also accused of spitting in a police officer’s face during the arrests.
