Transit Police report arresting a man on charges he groped a woman in the tunnel between the Orange and Red Lines at Downtown Crossing Thursday morning - and after he tried to fight off arriving officers.
Police say Josue Estrada, 30, indecently assaulted a woman around 9:05 a.m. as she was walking from Orange to Red. Arriving officers told Estrada to put his hands out for handcuffing, but "Estrada refused to comply with the officers commands and challenged them to a physical confrontation referring to himself as a 'Ninja'," police say.
Fortunately, however, the officers' training at the police academy proved superior to Estrada's fighting skills and they were able to subdue him and place him under arrest on a charge of indecent assault and battery.
Estrada had bail set at $500 at his arraignment today in Boston Municipal Court, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports, adding he was also ordered to stay out of Downtown Crossing station and away from the victim while his case is pending.
