Juvenile male assaults TPD officer.

 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.
