Cambridge Police report a man from Braintree tried to take advantage of a woman fixing her bicycle on Cambridge Street last Wednesday night.
According to police, the woman was fixing her bicycle on the side of Cambridge Street between First and Second streets in East Cambridge around 11:20 p.m. when Andrew Ma, 39, pulled up in a black SUV stopped and asked if she needed any help. Police say she replied no and began walking away with her bike:
Shortly thereafter, Ma came back and pulled in front of the woman. After asking if she had change for a $20, Ma reportedly grabbed the victim by her left wrist, touched her indecently and asked her for a sexual favor. He then pulled down his shorts while in the motor vehicle, exposed himself and then began to perform a sexual act on himself. The victim fled from Ma and rode her bicycle to her residence, where she subsequently reported the incident to the police.
Ma was charged with indecent assault and battery, open and gross lewdness and assault and battery, police say.
