Boston man arrested for numerous charges after incident onboard an MBTA bus.

 On December 27, 2022 at approximately 7:30PM Transit Police officers while at MBTA Nubian Sq. Station were alerted by a concerned citizen that a male, later identified as Carlos Pires, 48 of Boston, had exposed himself to a young female while onboard a Route 15 bus. Officers immediately proceeded in the direction of the bus and located the victim and a witness. Officers were informed of the following: while traveling inbound to Nubian Sq. on a route 15 bus Pires was making inappropriate and aggressive sexual comments to an 18-year-old female and ultimately exposed his genitals to her. When the victim attempted to use her phone to contact her mother relative to what was taking place Pires stated "You trying to call the cops?" and attempted to forcefully grab the phone from the victim's hand. Pires was unsuccessful. 

Based on a description from the victim and witness officers located Pires on Roxbury Street at Shawmut Ave. Pires made disparaging comments about women/victim and stated to the officers "Now arrest me". The officers did in fact arrest Pires and transported him to TPD HQ for the arrest booking process: Annoying & Accosting, Threats to Commit a Crime, Disorderly Conduct and Attempted Unarmed Robbery. 

Transit Police officers have had several encounters with Pires relative to his alleged behavior directed towards women and have sought criminal charges as a result thereof. Those matters are pending.
