Couple from Dorchester arrested for Lewd Conduct.

On March 12, 2018 at approximately 10:30PM Transit Police officers assigned to the South District received a radio call for suspicious activity at the MBTA's Uphams Corner CR station. While enroute to the call officers received additional information that a man and woman were engaged in sexual activity on the walkway leading to the northbound platform. Upon arrival officers observed a male, later identified as Alfred Roach, 55, and a female, later identified as Iyoki Ortiz, 34, both of Dorchester having sexual intercourse on the walkway ramp. Officers interrupted the activity and attempted to identify the parties. Ortiz provided a false name several times.

 Eventually the officers discovered her true identity which revealed several warrants in existence for her arrest issued from Brookline District Court for Larceny from a Building, numerous Drug violation and Assault & Battery. Both Ortiz and Roach were placed into custody for Lewd, Wanton and Lascivious Behavior and transported to TPD HQ for the arrest booking process.
