MBTA Transit Police want to question a group of skateboarders in connection with an assault that took place at an Orange Line T station earlier this month.

The incident occurred at approximately 7:30 pm. Oct. 4 at the Massachusetts Avenue MBTA station in Boston, police said in a statement on the Transit Police blog.

“The victim at the time of incident needed the use of a cane to get around,” Transit Police Superintendent Richard Sullivan said in an e-mail.

The victim was assaulted with his cane and the suspects “damaged his cellphone as well,” Sullivan said.

Police posted photos of four young men — three of whom were carrying skateboards — on the Transit Police blog and asked for the public’s help to identify them because they’re wanted for questioning in connection with the assault.
