Every day, police solve crimes in all our communities. But when suspects get away, Massachusetts law enforcement officers turn to the public for help. And that’s where the Mass Most Wanted network comes in.
Here are four of the state’s Most Wanted criminals within the network:
Crimes: A 15-year-old girl was approached at the Downtown Crossing MBTA station by the suspect, “Jeff.” While waiting for the train, Jeff allegedly asked the victim if he could give her $10 and “lick her.” When the girl said no, he grabbed her by the arm and dragged her to a set of stairs and started to pull at her clothing. The girl pushed him away, but Jeff allegedly forcibly kissed the victim. The suspect threw a $5 bill at the victim and boarded a train to Ashmont. Police captured Jeff on surveillance video exiting the train at the Field’s corner station.
