According to local publication and staple in the Boston Newssphere, UniversalHub, the group all list on their LinkedIn pages, either being current or recent students of Northeastern University. Six are majoring, majored or completed master’s degrees in biochemistry, bioengineering and computer science; one is working towards a bachelors in fine arts in game design. It is mind boggling what they were doing breaking into the construction site.
While outside of the A-1 District Station, a witness reported to Officers that they observed a group of people inside of the closed construction site at 1 Congress Street. The witness advised officers that the group wore all black clothing, with masks on their faces, and some were carrying backpacks. The 1 Congress Street construction site was closed at the time of this incident, with locked gates and numerous signage surrounding the site informing people not to trespass.
Due to the hazardous conditions of the construction site under demolition, supervisors advised officers not to enter the construction site and to establish a perimeter. Officers observed the group running along the fence line, and as six individuals fled over a fence, they were taken into custody without incident. The seventh suspect was located nearby a short time later and taken into custody.
