Girl and Rescued Kitten Reunited in South End

Myra, 5, had been walking along the street with her mother in Roxbury when a sound she heard coming from a trash can stopped her in her tracks.  There, wrapped in not one, but two plastic bags and inside a trash can, was a tiny gray and white kitten.  Myra and her mother took the kitten home and called the Animal Rescue League, who determined the kitten was only five weeks old and needed special care.  The kitten is now in foster care until she’s ready for adoption, but in the meantime, Myra got to take a special trip to the South End’s Animal Rescue League to be reuined with the kitten, who she named Paisley.  “Paisley has been in foster care for the past two weeks and has grown and filled out,” the Animal Rescue League wrote in a blog post. “Myra was so excited to see Paisley again and was thrilled to hear that she has already been adopted and will be going to her forever home very soon.” In addition to her reunion with Paisley, Myra got a special tour of the animals at the shelter.  “Thank you Myra for being mature beyond your years and for caring about animals so much!” said the Animal Rescue League.  SOUTH END PATCH: Facebook | Twitter | E-mail Updates South End Patch

Police: South End Man Kicked 8-Year-Old Girl on Orange Line

A South End man is facing assault annd battery charges for allegedly kicking an 8-year-old girl in the leg on the Orange Line a few weeks ago, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office. South End resident Antwan Crawford, 33, was arraigned on Thursday in Charlestown District Court on one count of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon for the incident aboard an Orange Line train near Community College station on Feb. 27.  Witnesses told police that a man had been engaged in a verbal altercation with another passenger whom the man apparently believed had stepped on his sneakers.  It was in the aftermath of that altercation that the child reported to her mother that the man had kicked her in the leg. Using her phone, the mother of the victim snapped the man’s picture. Using that phone photo, police at Bunker Hill Community College identified the man as Crawford based on a previous arrest for trespassing. As a result, MBTA Transit Police obtained a warrant for Crawford’s arrest and took him into custody on Wednesday. The district attorney’s office set his bail at $ 300, and he was also ordered to stay away from the victim and the Orange Line while the case is pending.  SOUTH END PATCH: Facebook | Twitter | E-mail Updates South End Patch
