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.Catalina Gaitan can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow her on Twitter at @catalina_gaitan.
