Another attack in South Boston has residents on high alert.
A woman was attacked in the middle of the day on Thursday in the elevator of a Channel Center Street building. Police told WCVB that a man grabbed the woman by the neck and waist as she got into an elevator behind 15 Channel Center St.
The victim was able to slip out of her assailant's grip and ran away. She got to her unit in the building and immediately called 911.
Police searched the building for the man, heading door to door to speak with residents, but were unable to locate the suspect.
Security will be heightened in the building to prevent any further incidents. This attack came less than a month after the kidnapping and murder of 24-year-old South Bostoner Amy Lord.
