Man on a Red Line train

Transit Police report arresting a Boston man with no fixed address on a charge of lewd and lascivious behavior aboard a Red Line train on Oct. 13.

Police say they were alerted to Anthony Sansone's behavior the following day by a Facebook user who forwarded a link to a Facebook video of him fondling himself on the train.

Sansone, 52, is a Level 3 sex offender. According to state records, he was convicted of assault on a child with intent to rape and two counts of indecent assault and battery on a child under 14 in 2004, and indecent assault and battery in 1991.

Innocent, etc.
