    Anthony Stimson, 30, of Boston

    A Boston man is facing charges after allegedly rummaging through another man's belongings after he collapsed and died at an MBTA station.

    MBTA police said 30-year-old Anthony Stimson has been arrested on a larceny charge after the early Wednesday morning incident.

    MBTA officers responded to the MBTA's Downtown Crossing station around 5 a.m. for a medical emergency, where they found an unconscious 52-year-old man. Officers tried to perform life-saving measures on the man, but paramedics who arrived on the scene said he died.

    An investigation into the incident allegedly showed that before officers arrived, a man, later identified as Stimson, came up to the victim as he was laying unconscious and went through and stole some belongings, including the victim's prescriptions.
