On July 9 & 10 we posted a video/photo's of a individual who verbally threatened and spat upon an MBTA operator (see posting here) and sought the public's assistance in identifying him. As a result of numerous tips received Transit Police detectives arrested Jeffery Martinez, 22 of Boston earlier today at Transit Police HQ. Martinez was processed through the arrest booking procedure and is expected to be arraigned sometime Monday July 15 at Lynn District Court for Assault &Battery and Interfering w/Public Transportation.
