Transit Police officers watching for fare evaders at downtown MBTA subway stations Tuesday spotted a man who had a familiar face. When officers stopped the man for having an open pint of alcohol in his hand, they soon learned why.
According to Transit Police, the man is Terrance Cannon, 32, of Boston, who was wanted by Brookline police since at least Aug. 17 on charges of armed assault with intent to murder, unarmed robbery, and driving without a license.
Cannon’s face, police said, was on a wanted poster Brookline police had sent to other departments, and it was that image that sparked their interest in the man they spotted.
Cannon — who first gave a false name, police said — was arrested on the warrants and for allegedly having cocaine on his person when taken into custody. He is scheduled to appear in Boston Municipal Court today before being sent to Brookline District Court to face the charges, Transit Police said.
