84-year-old wheelchair bound man assaulted and robbed, suspect arrested on MBTA bus



Police have arrested a suspect after reportedly beating and robbing a senior citizen in a wheelchair.

According to Transit Police, on Monday at approximately 1:30 p.m., Transit Police officers on patrol at the MBTA’s Nubian Sq. Station made an onsite arrest due to an incident.

In the vicinity of the 2200 block of Washington Street in Roxbury, an 84-year-old wheelchair bound man was approached by a female, later identified as 25-year-old Malina Stacy, of Boston. Stacy requested the victim give her some money. When the victim informed Stacy he did not have money to give her she responded by striking him in the face and head with a closed fist and removing money from the victim’s jacket pocket. Stacy then fled into Nubian Sq. Station and boarded an MBTA bus. Concerned citizens who observed the robbery flagged down Transit Police officers.

Officers boarded the bus, removed Stacy, and recovered the victim’s money from Stacy’s possession. Stacy was placed into custody, charged with Unarmed Robbery & Assault & Battery on an Elderly Person, and transported to TPD HQ to be booked.
