Omar Clapp
On December 5, 2016 at approximately 6:20PM Transit Police officers assigned to the Department's Crime Suppression Team were at the MBTA's Chinatown station conducting Point of Entry Policing. While there they observed a male, later identified as Omar Clapp, 38, of Dorchester evade his fare by "piggybacking" in behind a paying customer. Officers approached Clapp for the purpose of issuing a citation and subsequently discovered there was a warrant in existence for his arrest issued from Roxbury District Court for Indecent Assault & Battery and Dorchester District Court for two counts of Assault & Battery with a Dangerous Weapon.

Clapp was placed into custody and transported to Transit Police HQ for the arrest booking process.
