On April 11, 2014 a female victim reported to Transit Police the following: after boarding an inbound Green Line trolley at Haymarket MBTA station at approximately 8:30PM she noticed a male seated directly across from her. The male reached into pants, exposed himself and began masturbating. The male exited at Park Street station. On April 28, 2014 we posted photographs (see posting here) seeking assistance in the identification of the offending male.
