Yunior Mayorga-Valdez
On July 17, 2016 at approximately 10PM a Transit Police officer assigned to the North District received a radio call to respond to the Kendall Sq. MBTA station to investigate a possible assault. Upon arrival the officer met with the victim's mother who informed the officer that while travelling on an MBTA bus enroute to Kendall Sq. her thirteen (13) year old daughter was indecently assaulted. The victim's mother further informed the officer the perpetrator had just entered the Kendall MBTA station. The officer immediately proceeded to the platform area and located the offending male, later identified as Yunior Mayorga-Galvez, 21, of Somerville. Mayorga-Galvez was positively identified by witnesses present and placed into custody for Indecent Assault & Battery on a Person under 14. Mayorga-Galvez was transported to Transit Police HQ for the arrest booking process and it is expected he will be arraigned sometime today in Cambridge District Court.
