MBTA Transit Police Officers in Dorchester took a 14-year-old boy into custody on Thursday after he incited an unusual disturbance with them around 4:50 p.m.
MBTA Transit Police said in a press release that the young male threw an unwrapped condom at officers when they were in the area of Downtown Crossing (i.e., Summer and Arch St.) and “smashed” his hand on the officers’ cruiser windshield.
The teen and individuals who were with him fled on foot from the officers through the crowded sidewalk, causing people to jump out of their way into the street, the report stated. Officers were able to catch up to the teen, who jeered and yelled expletives at the officers.
The 14-year-old then punched an officer in the chest with a closed fist, according to the release.
Following the entire scene, the teen was placed into custody and transported to the Transit Police Department headquarters for an arrest booking. According to Superintendent Richard Sullivan, the teen was arrested on charges of assault and battery on a police officer and disorderly conduct. He is now with his parents, according to Sullivan.
