Boston Police Seek Public’s Help in Identifying Suspects Involved in St. Patrick’s Day Assault

Boston police are appealing to the public for assistance in identifying several individuals believed to be involved in an assault that took place during the St. Patrick’s Day festivities in South Boston. The incident occurred around 4 p.m. on Sunday near the intersection of E 2nd Street and M Street, according to the Boston Police Department.

Detectives from South Boston are currently seeking to identify four suspects allegedly connected to the assault and battery incident. The police department has released images of three of the suspects involved. One of the individuals is described as a white male with a slender build, wearing a tan scally cap and a Celtics jersey, along with a dark long-sleeved shirt or hooded sweatshirt underneath. The remaining suspects are described as Black males, with limited additional details provided. However, one of them can be seen wearing a black vest with a red hoodie underneath, along with light-colored sweatpants. Another suspect is observed wearing a navy long-sleeved shirt, a black vest, and a black hat.

The assault, which was captured on video near Medal of Honor Park, has gained significant attention after being widely circulated on platforms such as X and Reddit. The footage shows multiple individuals attacking a man, causing him to tumble downhill towards a nearby baseball field. The exact circumstances leading up to the incident remain unclear, as the video begins in the midst of the assault and concludes shortly after the victim manages to regain his footing after colliding face-first with a fence.

Boston police are actively reviewing the available evidence and circumstances surrounding the assault. They are urging anyone with information to come forward and contact the assigned detectives at 617-343-4742. Alternatively, community members can provide anonymous tips by calling the CrimeStoppers Tip Line at 1-800-494-TIPS or by texting the word “TIP” to “CRIME” (27463).
