Transit Police said they arrested a man for allegedly beating an MBTA employee with a shod foot last month, an attack that left a 69-year-old man bleeding from the face and ear.
Officials said the assault, which they described as "vicious," happened at 11:30 p.m. on Sept. 20 at the Roxbury Crossing station. Police said the victim was attacked after he tried to break up a "boisterous argument" happening between the suspect and another unknown man.
