Koutaiby was initially reported to Transit Police by a female commuter who said she witnessed Koutaiby “exposing himself and committing a lewd act” while waiting for a train on Jan. 16, Transit Police said.

This was the second arrest this month made by Transit Police of suspects who allegedly committed “lewd” behavior while on MBTA property. Adam Morrissey, 19, of Salem was arraigned Tuesday in Salem District Court on the same charge after he allegedly touched himself inappropriately while riding a commuter rail train in Gloucester.
