Officer Tavis Watson was just doing his job. But because he knew his beat well, seven arrests were made.
A teenager was punched and robbed on the subway platform in the Carroll Street station by six or seven other teens last month. The victim, a 14-year-old male, came to the station with his father to report the crime. He told Officer Watson he knew one of the theives names. When he told him what it was, Watson, who works the schools beat for the 76, asked him if the creep was instead another teen with a similar name. The victim said yes.
