Upon arrival officers were met by a female victim who relayed the following: As the victim entered the station's walkway from the Columbia Road side and while pushing her infant child in a stroller she was met by a male, later identified as David Jones, 56, of Boston. Jones dropped his pants fully exposing himself and made an inappropriate comment to the victim. The victim shielded her child from Jones and retreated back towards Columbia Road entrance.
