On June 20, 2017 at approximately 8:45PM Transit Police officers assigned to the Central District were on patrol at the MBTA's South Station Bus Terminal when they were approached by a female victim who reported she was just indecently assaulted. The victim went on to state as she was plugging in her iPhone to charge she was indecently assaulted from behind by a male, later identified as Stephen Bova, 64, of Boston. The victim further informed the officers Bova was still on scene and seated upstairs in the terminal waiting area.
Officers immediately proceeded in that direction and located Bova who was positively identified by the victim. Bova was placed into custody for Indecent Assault & Battery and transported to Transit Police HQ for the arrest booking process.
