Boston-bound train stopped after odd remarks
Apr. 17, 2013
FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (AP) — Police with bomb-sniffing dogs have swept a Boston-bound commuter rail train after a man was overheard making what were interpreted by some as threatening remarks.
A spokesman for the MBTA says a man was overheard saying people "should not get on" the train at the Southborough station on Wednesday morning. The man then left the area without boarding and some commuters alerted police.
The spokesman said the train was stopped in Framingham, passengers got off, and police searched the train without finding anything suspicious.
The train then proceeded to Boston.
No one was arrested.
