Boston man arrested for Indecent Assault & Battery

Uwadiae Ukponmwan
On May 23, 2015 at approximately 12:20pm Transit Police Officers working in Area 4 received a radio call to respond to the MBTA's Prudential station for a report of an assault. Upon arrival officers were met by the victim, a 23 year old female, who informed them as she entered the station a male indecently assaulted her. The victim then pointed out the male assailant who was still present in the station. Officers approached the male, later identified as Uwadiae Ukponmwan, 32, of Boston and placed him into custody for Indecent Assault & Battery and transported him to Transit Police HQ for the arrest booking process. It is expected Ukponmwan will be arraigned in Boston Municipal Court-Central Division sometime today.
