Transit Police report arresting a man for beating up a woman who looked like she'd just been punched slapped hard in the face at the Andrew T station - and for the 19 outstanding warrants he already had out, including for incidents in which he allegedly attacked a disabled person, a police officer, an EMT and a jail guard, in different parts of Boston.
Police say officers on patrol at Andrew heard screaming from the area of the busway around 9:30 p.m. on Dec. 6.
Upon arrival officers located a 26 year old female victim who had just been assaulted. Officers observed swelling and redness on the victim's facial area.
In the process of interviewing the two - they gave differing accounts - police say, the officers discovered that Erik Conroy, 30, already had those 19 outstanding warrants, issued out of courts downtown, Roxbury, West Roxbury, South Boston and Dorchester. In addition to various types of assault and battery, the warrants also included breaking and entering in the nighttime, police say.
Police add that the officers concluded the woman was telling the truth and arrested Conroy on a new charge of assault and battery
