A 44-year-old MBTA worker from Hyde Park was reportedly assaulted at knifepoint on Oct. 8 in Central Square.

Police received a report of a disturbance on Massachusetts Avenue around 3:57 p.m. The victim told police he was working at the bus stop for the MBTA when he saw a man, later identified as Leo Chatelain, 35, of 25 Stanaford St., Apt. 4E, Boston, arguing with a woman. He said he watched them to make sure the woman was ok.

When they stopped arguing, Chatelain became angry with the MBTA worker. He allegedly pulled a knife and threatened to stab him.

“What are you going to do,” he reportedly said.

The knife had a "wooden-style" handle and was about 6 inches long, according to police.

The reporting officer said he saw Chatelain trying to throw something away, and was able to later recover the described knife next to the trashcan. After being read his Miranda rights, Chatelain allegedly said he tried to throw away the knife.

He was arrested on the charges of assault with a dangerous weapon (knife) and carrying a dangerous weapon.
