McFall said two other students reported a similar incident occurred while they were walking together on the Boston Common by Park Street Station.

The students told the Emerson College Police Department about the assaults around midnight Friday, the college said in a statement.

The students are safe and Emerson police have notified MBTA Transit Police, who are investigating the incidents, according to McFall.

The school did not release any additional details, including the gender of the students attacked.
