Quincy man arrested for impersonating a police officer

Posted: Updated:
QUINCY, Mass. (WHDH) - A man was arrested at the Quincy Center T station on March 18 for impersonating a police officer.

Two male victims told MBTA Transit Police that they were approached by suspect Michael Murray, 33, of Quincy, who demanded that the victims produce identification. He then simulated speaking into his cellphone requesting back up and then asked to see the inside of the center console.

When the victims asked to see a badge, Murray responded with "I don't need to show you anything." He fled the area.

Later, the victims saw the suspect on the corner of Hancock and Granite Street. As they approached, Murray waved a box cutter at the victims and demanded they not tell anyone of what happened.

After telling officers of what happened, Murray was arrested Thursday and charged with impersonating a police officer and assault by means of a dangerous weapon.

He was expected to be arraigned Thursday in Quincy District Court.
