On November 23, 2022 at approximately 4:05PM Transit Police officers assigned to the Central District received a radio call to respond to the MBTA's State Street Station for a report of an Indecent Assault & Battery. Upon arrival officers met with a female victim who informed the officers she was Indecently Assaulted by an unknown male a short while ago at Copley MBTA Station and provided a description of the SP. Officers immediately responded to Copley Station and observed a male, later identified as Abdirahman Abdullahi, 24, of Boston matching the description provided by the reporting party. The observant officers also noted Abdullahi matched the depiction of a male involved in a separate Indecent Assault & Battery incident occurring at the MBTA Copley Station on November 18, 2022 at approximately 5:50PM.
After an on scene investigation conducted by the responding officers they concluded Abdullahi was the male depicted in the photograph of the prior alleged incident (11/18) and placed him into custody. Abdullahi was transported to TPD HQ for the arrest booking process. Abdullahi may face additional counts/charges pending an investigation for separate alleged incidents of Indecent Assault & Battery.
