BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) – An East Boston man was arrested for allegedly breaking a window on an MBTA bus at the Maverick Square station Friday. He also assaulted a police officer and has previously stolen items from Marshalls, according to MBTA Transit Police.
Around 5:45 p.m. Friday, transit police officers on patrol at the Maverick Square station were told by an MBTA employee that a man had broken a window on an MBTA bus. The bus was full and the male was told that he would have to wait for the next one. He allegedly started screaming and kicking the bus windows, causing a window to break from a spider web crack, police said.
Transit police officers searched the area for the male and found someone matching his description. The male was identified at Thomas Carsuo, 55, of East Boston. He was arrested on the charge of malicious destruction of property.
As the officers attempted to place Caruso in custody, he kicked an officer in the thigh. Police were able to get him under control and brought him back to the Transit Police Headquarters, where they found a few items in his possession that still had security anti-theft devices from Marshalls attached.
Caruso is scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 23, where he will be arraigned for malicious destruction of property, assault on a police officer and receiving stolen property.
