From The Boston Police:

Earlier today, on Friday January 15, 2021, Boston Police Detectives assigned to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office travelled to a Juvenile Detention Center in New York to take custody of a juvenile male suspect who was wanted on an outstanding warrant stemming from the events which unfolded in Downtown Boston on May 31, 2020.

At the time of his detention, the suspect was attempting to board a one-way, international flight when authorities discovered the outstanding warrant which had been issued out of the Juvenile Division of Boston Municipal Court on charges of Delinquent to Wit: Arson of a Motor Vehicle and Inciting a Riot.

The suspect had previously been placed in custody on Thursday June 11, 2020, by members of the BPD Fire Investigation Unit and the Framingham Police Department and was later released. The suspect is expected to be arraigned in Boston Juvenile Court.
