TPD officer attacked at South Station.

On October 22, 2018 at 7:30PM a Transit Police officer assigned to the Central District was on patrol at the MBTA's South Station Commuter Rail. While there he was approached by a concerned citizen who informed him a man appeared to be threatening a female just outside the commuter rail doors. The officer immediately proceeded in that direction and came upon a male, later identified as Othman Yakuba, age 33, and a female engaged in a verbal altercation. As the officer approached he was immediately attacked by Yakuba and causing the officer to fall backwards striking his head on the pavement. As the officer wrestled with Yakuba he was able to press his Officer in Trouble button on his radio and multiple TPD Units responded. Prior to additional TPD officers arrival two good Samaritans intervened long enough for responding officers to assist.


Yakuba was placed into custody for Assault & Battery on a Police Officer and Assault & Battery for the initial assault on the female victim. Yakuba was transported to TPD HQ for the arrest booking process.

Transit Police Advisory: Counterfeit World Series tickets.

TPD Advisory
 Transit Police would like to remind/warn Red Sox fans to be wary of purchasing counterfeit tickets.  Transit Police have taken reports in the past from victims who have purchased counterfeit tickets from secondary sources. Oftentimes the "seller" will arrange to meet the buyer at various MBTA stations, conduct the sale and quickly vanish within the mass of people utilizing the T.  By the time the buyer realizes the tickets are counterfeit the "seller" is long gone and the victim is out hundreds of dollars.  Fans who purchase tickets from a secondary source and or from individuals advertising on social media sites are taking a RISK. We would like to encourage fans to only buy tickets from authorized ticket agencies. Purchasing from other sources is not recommended. 
Potential ticket buyers should guarantee authenticity by purchasing tickets directly through legitimate/authorized outlets
 If you have any information of people selling counterfeit tickets on the MBTA please contact our Criminal Investigation Unit at 617-222-1050 or send an anonymous tip via text to 873873 or via our SeeSay app. If you have information of people selling counterfeit tickets within the City of Boston please call Boston Police Department.
