Malden Man Arrested for Assault & Battery and Unarmed Robbery in Boston Train Station

Joseph McCloskey, 40, of Malden, Massachusetts, allegedly assaulted and robbed a man from Arlington last week while he was standing on the train platform at the Downtown Crossing Orange Line Station.

According to the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority Police Department, McCloskey ran off with approximately $200 from the man. As the man chased McCloskey, however, McCloskey suddenly and without warning turned and punched the Arlington man, and the two fell into the train tracks. MBTA employees immediately shut down the third rail.

McCloskey was arraigned yesterday morning in the Boston Municipal Court on charges of Unarmed Robbery and Assault & Battery. Following his arraignment, he was held on $5,000 cash bail.
