ROXBURY (CBS) – MBTA Police announced on Wednesday that they’ve arrested two teenagers involved in an assault on a T bus driver.

Nineteen-year-old Michael Baptista and 18-year-old Felix Garcia, both of Roxbury face felony charges for interference with a bus driver and assault and battery on a public employee.

If convicted on the interference charge, the men could both be looking at a maximum 20 years in prison.

The MBTA said the 39-year-old bus driver was attacked on Monday after he apparently asked one of the passengers to put out a cigarette.  The attack caused the bus to hit a building.
