Group attacks woman on Esplanade
State Police are investigating another assault on the Esplanade over weekend, but they don’t believe it’s connected to past incidents in the area.
According to reports, a group of men allegedly attacked a 31-year-old Cambridge woman as she jogged along the riverside Saturday night.
The victim was allegedly punched twice in the head after being surrounded by three men who were part of a group by the Community Boating, Inc. building.
The suspects were described as black males in their early 20s.
The victim told police the men were drinking by the waterfront area.
Police said the woman was able to break free from the attackers, but officers were unable to locate the suspects.
Officials are calling the attack a simple assault, and they are continuing to investigate.
Police said the attack did not result in a sexual assault, and the suspects’ profile differs from that of the unsolved sexual assaults on the Esplanade in recent years. steve annear
