The Boston Globe reports that early Wednesday morning a woman was groped from behind near Boston and Mayhew streets. The assault took place at 1:17am and the woman described her attacker as a Hispanic man in his late 20’s, 5 foot 10 with a medium build.
So is this the same person from two early incidents?
Incident #1: At about 1:37 AM on Thursday July 16, 2015, officers assigned to District C-6 (South Boston) responded to a radio call in the area of Farragut Road for a woman screaming. Officers located a female victim who stated that she was approached from behind and touched inappropriately by a Hispanic male in his early twenties, 5’07-5’09, dressed in a dark colored shirt and camouflage shorts. When the victim screamed for help, the suspect ran down Farragut Road towards East First Street.
Incident #2: Officers assigned to District C-6 (South Boston) took a walk in report from a female victim who stated that at about 3:00 AM on Saturday September 5, 2015, she was approached from behind and touched inappropriately by a Hispanic male in his early twenties, 5’09-5’10, dressed in a dark jacket (Aviator style or Varsity style) in the area of Boston and Mayhew Streets. The victim stated that when she screamed for help, the suspect fled on foot down Mayhew Street back towards Boston Street.
