State Police arrested one adult and three juveniles at Carson Beach in South Boston on Sunday for charges that include assault and battery and disorderly conduct, and troopers charged one person at Revere Beach with disorderly conduct and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, officials said.

Troopers were continuing to provide crowd and traffic control at both popular beaches after State Police arrested five people at Carson Beach on Saturday, including two juveniles and three adults, and seven people at Revere Beach, State Police spokesman Dave Procopio said in a statement Sunday night.

“As was the case yesterday, our mission was to protect the safety of, and ensure a positive visitor experience for, all beach goers,” Procopio said.

There were several hundred people at Carson Beach on Sunday, but crowds there and at Revere Beach were thinner than they had been Saturday, when several thousand were estimated to have visited Carson Beach, he said.

“We welcome our mission to keep the state beaches safe for all visitors from all walks of life,” Procopio said. “All we ask is that beachgoers respect the rights of others around them and abide by the law and beach rules. We are grateful to the many beach visitors who did so this weekend.”
