On February 11, 2016 at approximately 5:30 pm Transit Police officers were conducting Point of Entry Policing at the MBTA's Downtown Crossing Station. While there they had their attention drawn to a male, later identified as Jesus Carrassquillo
, 22, of Boston, who fare evaded by "piggybacking" in behind a paying customer. Officers approached Carrasquillo for the purpose of issuing a citation but soon discovered there was a warrant in existence for Carrasquillo's arrest issued from Worcester Superior Court for Armed Robbery. Carassquillo was placed into custody and transported to Transit Police HQ for the arrest booking process.
