The Massachusetts State Police Disabled Persons Protection Unit arrested a Salem man Tuesday morning on indecent assault and battery charges.
Robert T. Buckley, 64, of Salem, was arrested on four counts of indecent assault and battery on a person with a developmental/intellectual disability and a single count of intimidating a witness.
Police believe Buckley assaulted two developmentally disabled people in their 20s whom he regularly transported as part of his job with a private transportation company, according to a release.
Buckley is currently being held at the Revere Barracks and will be arraigned today in Chelsea District Court.
The investigation by state troopers began several days ago following a telephone complaint made to the Commission’s hotline. Troopers worked in conjunction with the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office and the state Department of Developmental Services.
Salem Patch will post additional information as it becomes available.
