A Malden man is facing charges that he slammed a brick repeatedly against an MBTA train Sunday afternoon, shattering several windows, MBTA Transit Police said today in a statement.

Stephen Fusco, 46, is to be arraigned today in the Charlestown division of Boston Municipal Court on a charge of malicious destruction of property, officials said.


Transit Police received reports of a man smashing a brick against an Orange Line train at Community College Station at 3:30 p.m. Upon arrival, officers discovered Fusco standing shirtless near the station’s entrance, holding a brick. Fusco allegedly said “Yeah, I did it,” as officers approached him, and was arrested, Transit Police said.

Further investigation revealed Fusco had an outstanding arrest warrant from Boston Municipal Court for threats to commit a crime.

A total of three windows on two sets of train doors were shattered by the brick. The train was removed from service to be repaired, Transit Police said.
