On October 27, 2022, at approximately 4:50PM Transit Police officers were in the area of Downtown Crossing (Summer & Arch Street) when a 14-year-old male threw an unwrapped condom at them and then smashed his hand against their cruiser's windshield. The juvenile and his companions then fled running through a crowd of people causing pedestrians to jump out their way and into the street to avoid being knocked over. The officers caught up to the offending juvenile a short distance away. The juvenile was non-compliant and hurled numerous expletives at the officers. Ultimately the juvenile male with a closed fist punched the officer in his chest. At this time the juvenile, 14 of Dorchester, was placed into custody and transported to TPD HQ for the arrest booking process.

On October 8, 2022 at approximately 1:27AM a Transit Police officer while at the MBTA Wonderland Station was flagged down by a male victim who relayed the following: Victim is a Lyft driver and responded to the MBTA Wonderland Station for a customer who ordered a ride for a single passenger. Upon arrival however the victim observed two customers, a female and the SP male, and they proceeded to enter the victim's vehicle. The Victim attempted to explain the Lyft order was only for a single person. The SP male became angry. The Victim tried to ease the situation by informing the SP male he would cancel the order for no charge. The female upon hearing this exited the victim's vehicle. The SP male however refused to exit but proceeded to the victim's passenger door and with a closed fist struck victim in the face and then again in the Victim's ear. Sp male then fled.
Officers observed fresh blood dripping from Victim's face as well as a laceration above his right eye. The Victim supplied the officers with a description of the offending male and shortly thereafter officers located both the SP male and his female companion near the parking garage. The SP male admitted to assaulting the Victim and was positively identified. The SP male, a 30 year old East Boston resident, will be summoned into court for Assault and Battery. Victim refused medical attention.
