A 66-year-old man in Boston was sent to the hospital Monday after he was attacked by Nerf gun-wielding "juveniles."
The ambush took place around 7 p.m. at the Downtown Crossing train station, said Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority police.
A "group of 6 to 7 juveniles ranging in age from 14 to 16" started to harass and intimidate the passengers, authorities said in a statement.
