Custodial Worker Arrested for Alleged Indecent Assault

Police unsure if suspect is linked to five previous incidents

“To publicize a newfound fear of custodians because of what one did wrong is inappropriate,” Friedman wrote in an e-mail to the Mather-open list. “We should respect them as individuals and be especially careful not to generalize about an entire professional group because of a single incident.”

Ramos was arraigned Wednesday morning and charged with one count of indecent assault and battery, according to Spokesperson for the Middlesex County District Attorney’s office Seth I. Horowitz.

Horowitz said that Ramos is being held for a “dangerousness hearing” to decide whether he can be released on bail.

Ramos will remain in the Middlesex County jail until next week’s hearing, Horowitz said.
