On December 3, 2015 at approximately 7PM Transit Police officers assigned to the downtown area received a radio call to respond to Haymarket MBTA station for a report of an MBTA employee who was assaulted. Upon arrival officers were met by the victim/MBTA employee who pointed out a male, later identified John Reddy
, 37 of Beverley. The victim informed the officers his attention was drawn to Reddy due to other passengers complaining of being harassed by him. Upon approaching Reddy, Reddy threw a Rolling Rock beer bottle nearly striking the victim in the head. Reddy then shouted out that he would "Kill" the MBTA employee/victim. Officers also observed shattered glass strewn about the immediate area.
Officers placed Reddy into custody for Assault by Means of a Dangerous Weapon and transported him to Transit Police HQ for the arrest booking process. Reddy was arraigned in Boston Municipal Court-Central Division last week.
