    BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) – The four men accused of attacking a father and daughter on a Blue Line train between Maverick and Airport stations have been identified.

    According to MBTA Spokesperson Joe Pesaturo, charges are pending against all of the men who are in their 20s. Three of the men turned themselves into police Tuesday, he said.

    Investigators say the father was onboard the train with his wife and two daughters, 18 and 14, heading back from a Boston Red Sox game at about 8:30 p.m. on Sept. 18. The four men boarded the Blue Line train and were allegedly behaving in a disorderly manner, spilling a beer on the father, Transit Police said.

    After the father and the four men exchanged words regarding the incident, one of the men punched the father in the face. The other three men joined in, allegedly punching the father in the face multiple times, police said.

    The man's 18-year-old daughter was also punched in the thigh during the altercation, Transit Police said.

    Following the alleged assault, the suspects fled at the Airport MBTA station into the surrounding neighborhood.

    The father was not hospitalized following the alleged attack; however, his injuries were visible.
