While there they were approached by a concerned patron who informed them a male was making inappropriate comments to female patrons. The officers located the male subject, later identified as Joseph Granigan

Subsequently officers discovered there was a warrant in existence for Granigan's arrest issued from Boston Municipal Court-Central Division for Distribution of a Controlled Class E substance. Granigan was placed into custody and transported to Transit Police HQ for the arrest booking process.
