Man with Multiple IDs and Stun Gun Arrested

New York resident held without bail while facing multiple charges after being arrested on Amtrak train.

The Boston Herald is reporting that a man was arrested on Tuesday at Univiersity Station after passengers reported that he was acting suspicious.

Amtrak police confronted the man, and when he didn't produce an ID they took a further look at him.

Because the man had no ticket, he was arrested. Upon searching his belongings, police found that he was in possession of  a stun gun and had identifications in six different names, as well as prescriptions filled out to all the different names.

Police were able to identify the man as Mark Moskowitz of Brooklyn, NY, through fingerprints and found that there were warrants for him in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island and New York for forgery, illegally obtaining prescription drugs and failure to appear in court.

He was arraigned Wednesday on charges of identity fraud, stun gun possession, fare evasion, trespassing and providing a false name to police.

Where is "Univiersity Station?" There's a Route 128 station for Amtrak in Westwood, which is near the planned University Station development, but there's no such thing as a University Station train station in Westwood. So much for accuracy. I guess you get what you pay for, including "free" local news web sites.

Thank you for pointing this out, Roger. I had thought local residents often referred to this train station as "University Station," but after seeing your comment I decided to check again and found that some people simply refer to it as "the train station on University Avenue." You are correct that the true name is the Route 128 station. Thank you for pointing that out to me. If you do notice other inaccurate information that I've been reporting, please feel free to email me to let me know at robert.rosen@patch.com.
