Point of Entry Policing; Forest Hills

Guled Ali
On March 19, 2015 at approximately 10:30am Transit Police officers working in Area 4 were conducting Point of Entry Policing at the MBTA's Forest Hills station. While there they observed a male, later identified as Guled Ali , 29, of Boston fare evade by physically forcing the fare gate to open. Officers approached Ali for the purpose of issuing a citation and requested Ali identify himself. Ali furnished false information to the officers in an attempt to conceal his true identity. Subsequently officers discovered there was a warrant in existence for Ali's arrest issued from Roxbury District Court for Assault, Attempt to Commit a Crime and Resisting Arrest. Ali was placed into custody and transported to Transit Police HQ for the arrest booking process.
