BOSTON — An assault on a county corrections officer has resulted in 19 arrests as part of “Operation Clean Sweep,” with both the district attorney and Boston police saying they will keep up the enforcement along the “Methadone Mile” where the beating took place.

The latest arrest of 51-year-old Sean Stuart, who was charged with aggravated assault and battery, was announced a day after a Suffolk County House of Corrections Officer was attacked on Atkinson Street while attempting to report to work.

The 28-year-old officer was hit in the face with a metal object at about 7:30 a.m. Thursday, police said. He was treated and later released from Boston Medical Center.

He had stepped out of his car, police said, when a fight broke out that was caught on tape showing about five others joining in. The officer’s watch, glasses and phone were taken during the brawl, police said.

Boston police Sgt. Detective John Boyle said Friday BPD has “directed patrols in the area and we are going to continue to monitor the area.”

Torre Jenkins, 45, was also arrested in connection with the assault and was charged with breaking and entering into a motor vehicle and attempted larceny of a motor vehicle.

Jenkins appeared in Roxbury District Court Friday, where his bail was set at $750. Jenkins will be held in Norfolk County, authorities said.

The other arrests stemmed from outstanding warrants and some new charges tied to the attack, police said.

The area where the beating took place is known as the “Methadone Mile” — where treatment clinics and homeless shelters are located near Massachusetts Avenue and Melnea Cass Boulevard.

“We are taking this incredibly seriously, this was a violent attack,” said Suffolk District Attorney Rachael Rollins.

“We have significant mental health issues, we have significant substance use disorder issues,” Rollins added. “That is not an excuse for violent behavior.”

Saschalee Rodriguez, 28, of Roslindale, charged with distribution of Class A and B drugs
