Transit Police report arresting a Boston man on charges he openly masturbated on an inbound Lowell Line train yesterday evening.
According to police, a woman on the train, due into Boston at 6:25 p.m., was minding her own business when she noticed some movement in the seat across the aisle from hers:
[Mehmet] Beyaztas was masturbating and looking in her direction. Beyaztas made no attempt to conceal and/or be covert in his actions and his penis was fully exposed. The reporting party moved away from Beyaztas and reported the incident to train personnel.
Police say they were waiting at the station when the train pulled in and that Beyaztas, 24, made an unsuccessful effort to run away. He's scheduled for arraignment today on a charge of open and gross lewdness.
