James Floyd, 60, faces arraignment today on charges he indecently assaulted two women at North Station on March 29, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.
Floyd has been a Transit Police officer for 22 years, and has served as a plainclothes officer, according to his LinkedIn page. Prior to that, he served 11 years with the Winthrop Police Department.
Update from the DA's office:
Polumbaum told the court that Floyd indecently assaulted two women within a 17-minute time span on the afternoon of March 29. After the first assault, he allegedly offered the victim a knife and challenged her to stab him, then opened a collapsible metal baton and stared at her in a threatening manner before walking away. Both women disclosed the assaults, which were soon reported to Transit Police. Command staff terminated the detail he was working and relieved him of duty; he later resigned from the Transit Police.
The victims and numerous witnesses made themselves available to Transit Police detectives in the days that followed. Based on their disclosures and additional evidence gathered by investigators, Transit Police obtained a warrant for his arrest and took him into custody this morning.
The Globe reports both women are Keolis ticket takers.
A prosecutor asked for bail of $10,000, but Boston Municipal Court Judge Thomas Horgan released Floyd, a WInthrop resident, on personal recognizance.
