Boston Man Arrested For Groping Red Line Passenger

BOSTON (CBS) – A Boston man was arrested by MBTA Transit Police after they say he groped a Cambridge woman on a train last month.

The suspect, 25-year-old Brian Canning, allegedly grabbed the victim’s buttocks November 1st, in a crowded Red Line train.  The alleged assault reportedly took place between the Charles/MGH MBTA and the Park Street stops.

The woman spotted the suspect on a subsequent T ride, and was able to describe Canning to police, who used surveillance footage to track him down.

Canning was arrested Wednesday, and is charged with indecent assault and battery.
