According to a Transit Police report, the undercover officer was standing on a platform at the Dudley MBTA station watching for thieves Tuesday afternoon when a man later indentified by police as Ricardo Lopez approached him and said, “How are you, papa?”
Lopez then allegedly stared at the officer’s groin area, smiled and said: “I want that, papa,” according to the police report.
When the officer asked Lopez to step away from the busy station and tried to interview him, Lopez told him: “I want that (expletive), papa” and then grabbed the officer’s groin, according to the report.
Lopez was charged with indecent assault and battery. He was arraigned yesterday in Roxbury Municipal Court and released on $500 cash bail. He was ordered to stay away from the Dudley MBTA station. Lopez’s attorney could not be reached for comment.
