Man wanted for Assaulting Police caught fare evading.

Xavier Galatis
On February 1, 2017 at approximately 7:30PM Transit Police officers were conducting Point of Entry Policing at the MBTA's Chinatown station. While there they had their attention drawn to a male, later identified as Xavier Galatis, 24, of Medford. Galatis entered through the fare gates without paying his fare. Officers approached Galatis for the purpose of issuing a citation and subsequently discovered there were warrants in existence for Galatis' arrest issued from Cambridge District Court for Assault & Battery on a Police Officer, Resisting Arrest, Disorderly Conduct and Threats to Commit a Crime.

Galatis was issued a citation, placed into custody and transported to Transit Police HQ for the arrest booking process.
