A Boston man is facing a charge that he engaged in lewd behavior while waiting to board a Green Line train at MBTA’s Hynes Convention Center station earlier this month.
Salah Koutaiby, 49, will be arraigned today in Boston Municipal Court on a charge of open and gross lewdness. A physical description of Koutaiby led to his arrest by Transit Police Tuesday at the Hynes station, Transit Police said today in a statement.
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.Catalina Gaitan can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
