On October 28, 2020 at approximately 10AM Transit Police officers assigned to the South District received a radio call to respond to the MBTA's Stony Brook Station for a report of a male committing a lewd act. Upon arrival officers were met by several witnesses who informed the officers while traveling on a southbound train a male, later identified as Shavor Pickering, 30, of Boston was standing in the aisle directly across from at least two seated females and while fully exposed was masturbating. The witnesses pointed out Pickering who was still onboard the train.
Officers approached Pickering who spontaneously uttered incriminating statements and derogatory comments towards the female witnesses. Pickering was placed into custody and transported to TPD HQ for the arrest booking process.
