Fourth man this month accused of sexual misconduct on the MBTA
For the fourth time this month, a man is accused of sexual deviancy on the MBTA.
Salah Koutaiby, 49 of East Boston was arrested at Hynes MBTA Station Tuesday on suspicion of open and gross lewdness.
Transit Police said a woman reported that at 6:15 p.m., while waiting for a Green Line train, she saw a man standing on the inbound platform, exposing himself and committing a lewd act. A description of the suspect led police to Koutaiby, who was expected to be arraigned sometime Wednesday in Boston Municipal Court-Central Division.
The Transit Police said in a statement that they “believe that incidents such as described above are under reported crimes. We encourage all who may have witnessed and/or been victimized by such incidents to please contact us. We will vigorously investigate all reports and ensure those individuals who commit such acts are held accountable.”
Another man, 19-year-old Adam Morrissey, of Salem, was arrested this week for allegedly masturbating on a commuter rail train. Last week, a Quincy man was arrested for allegedly masturbating on a Red Line train. Earlier this month, on Jan. 8, a man was accused of of indecently assaulting a female passenger on a Green Line trolley. No arrests were made in that case.
