T crime roundup: wanted robber urinates in elevator, sex offender exposes himself at Copley

T police insist, “If you see something say something.”

Three suspects wanted on outstanding warrants brought themselves to the attention of MBTA transit police this weekend at T stations in Roxbury, Copley Square and South Boston.

A New Bedford woman was arrested Saturday night at Ruggles Station in Roxbury for allegedly relieving herself in an elevator there.

MBTA transit police said “a concerned citizen” approached them around 10:30 p.m. to tell them a woman, later identified as Zavette Little, 42,  had just urinated in the elevator.

Little, who at first gave a false name to officers, admitted to being a wanted person. she had a warrant out of West Roxbury District Court for unarmed robbery, assault and batter with a dangerous weapon, and assault and battery, transit police said.

Around 8 p.m. on Friday, in an unrelated incident in Copley Square, a Boston man was arrested for allegedly exposing himself at the MBTA station there.

Transit police later tracked down the suspect, Daniel Williams, 54, and discovered he had an outstanding warrant out of South Boston District Court for failure to register as a sex offender.

Earlier that day, a Southbridge man was arrested at Andrew station after transit police said he was “loitering in the bus way and smoking while in a conspicuously posted ‘no smoking’ area.”

When transit police questioned the man, later identified as 40-year-old George Handy, they found he had an outstanding default warrant from Plymouth District Court for distribution of class A substance, possession of a class A substance, and conspiracy to violate state drug laws.

All three of the above suspects were expected to appear in court sometime Monday.
