    Man arrested for sexual assault on Orange Line

    A Charlestown man was arrested on Wednesday for sexually assaulting a woman on an Orange Line train earlier this month, MBTA Transit Police said.

    Gregory Rieschick, 38, allegedly “positioned himself very close to” a woman after she boarded an inbound train from Malden Center on May 2, according to a statement from police. He then indecently assaulted her around 5:15 a.m.

    Rieschick was taken into custody at the MBTA Community College station following an investigation, and then to Transit Police headquarters for booking.
