UPDATE-Arrest made in Rockport Line Lewd Act.

Adam Morrissey
On January 28, 2014 we posted a photograph of an individual (see posting here) who was masturbating on a Rockport Line MBTA Commuter Rail train. The individual's genitals were fully exposed and he made no attempts to conceal what he was doing.

Subsequent to numerous tips received Transit Police detectives arrested Adam Morrissey, 19 of Salem for Open & Gross Lewdness. It is expected Morrissey will be arraigned sometime today in Salem District Court.

The Transit Police would like to express our gratitude to all those who sent in tips which led to the identification and arrest of Morrisey. This is yet another example which proves when law enforcement and the public work together individuals such as Morrissey are held accountable for their criminal conduct.

media inquiries should be sent to
