Juvenile Accused of Throwing Bleach in MBTA Bus Incident

If you have information on these three women, the MBTA wants you to call 617-222-1050 or text to 873873.

A 15-year-old is being held on $ 100,000 bail after being accused of throwing bleach in the face of a passenger riding the 28 bus last week.

The juvenile, a female from Roxbury, is facing charges of unarmed robbery, willful and malicious destruction of property under $ 250, mayhem and indecent assault and battery along with co-defendant Lai Lawnnie Douglas, 22, according to Jake Wark, spokesman for the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office. Roxbury District Court Judge David Poole imposed $ 20,000 bail for Douglas.

Douglas was also held on a probation detainer for violating the terms of her probation on a 2008 case out of Roxbury District Court in which she was charged with larceny from a person, witness intimidation, carrying a dangerous weapon, and assault and battery, according to Wark.

Boston Juvenile Court Judge Paul Lewis revoked the juvenile defendant’s bail in an open case out of Brookline charging her with assault and battery and shoplifting. Her name is not being released because she is a juvenile. read more
