Police: Woman Assaulted MBTA Passenger, Stole Phone



    MBTA Transit Police

    A 20-year-old woman was arrested after police say she attacked someone on an MBTA platform and stole her iPhone in Boston.

    Police arrested Bianca Telheiro of Boston Thursday at Park Street Station. The previous evening, transit police say, she assaulted a female victim on the Red Line platform at Downtown Crossing.

    Telheiro was arraigned on charges of larceny over $250 and assault. It was not immediately clear if she had an attorney.

    Also on Thursday, Telheiro was interviewed by necn's Ally Donnelly about the dangers of fetanyl being produced to look like Oxycodone, saying that the extremely powerful opiate left her mother dead.

    "My mom did a shot of it and she didn't know it was fentanyl," said Telheiro. "She thought it was dope and she died."
