Sex offender taken into custody after taking pictures of children at Forest Hills Station
MBTA Transit Police have arrested a man who was seen taking pictures of children at Forest Hills Station early Monday morning, police said. A witness alerted police at 6:50 a.m., pointing out the man. After police approached the man — later identified as Vincent Lucas, 49, of Lowell — he told officers he had just received a new phone and was “playing around with it,” Transit Police said. He was taken into custody when police discovered he had failed to register as a sex offender, Transit Police said.
