Boston Man arrested for Indecent Assault & Battery.

Josue Estrada
On May 28, 2015 at approximately 9:05AM Transit Police officers working in Area 1 received a radio call to respond to the MBTA's Downtown Crossing station for a report of an assault. Upon arrival officers were met by a female victim who informed the officers as she was walking from the Orange Line to the Red Line she was indecently assaulted by a male. The victim then pointed out the offending male subject who was now seated on a bench. Officers approached the male, later identified as Josue Estrada, 30 , of Boston and informed him he was being placed into custody. Estrada refused to comply with the officers commands and challenged them to a physical confrontation referring to himself as a "Ninja". Officers were able to gain control of Estrada and placed him into custody. Estrada was transported to Transit Police HQ for the arrest booking process. It is expected Estrada will be arraigned sometime today for Indecent Assault & Battery in Boston Municipal Court-Central Division.
