Man arrested for Open & Gross Conduct

On March 8, 2013 at approximately 6:20pm a female reported to Transit Police the following: while traveling on an inbound Orange Line train a male pulled his pants down and fully exposed himself to her. This occurred as the train was pulling into Mass Ave MBTA station. The male directed his genitals towards the reporting party for approximately one minute then exited the train at Mass Ave station.

April 3, 2013, subsequent to an investigation, Transit Police detectives did arrest John McDonald, 48 of Boston at Ruggles MBTA station after he was recognized from a wanted poster by an officer for the above described incident. McDonald was transported to Transit Police HQ for the arrest booking process and is expected to be arraigned sometime today in Boston Municipal Court-Central Division for Open & Gross Conduct.
