BPD releases new photo of man wanted for questioning in Beacon Hill sex assault
BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) -- Boston Police have released a new photo of a man they say they want to talk to in connection with a sex assault on Beacon Hill.
The assault happened at about 2:15 p.m. on May 30. The victim told police the suspect approached her from behind and groped her. After the woman yelled for help, she said the man ran along Anderson Street towards Phillips Street.
A video previously released by police shows a man wearing gray-colored clothing walking across the screen. He is later seen running in the opposite direction.
The suspect in the assault is described as a white man in his early 20s. He was about 5 feet 8 inches tall, 150 lbs with a thin build and had fair skin, dark hair and dark eyes. He was wearing a black or gray flat-brimmed cap, black shirt and was wearing long shorts and sneakers.
Police were investigating two additional attacks on women in the Beacon Hill area last week.
Investigators say similarities in the cases lead them to believe they may be connected. In each case, the victims were approached from behind and in two instances the victims were assaulted while they were trying to enter their homes.
Anyone with information is asked to call Boston Police at 617-343-4400.
