Police are looking for this man in connection to an assault on a Northborough joggNorthborough Police Dept./Handout

Authorities are handing out flyers with the sketch of a man who they suspect of grabbing a female jogger in Northborough and possibly of being involved in a similar incident in nearby Westborough.

Around 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, a woman told police she was jogging on Lyman Street when a man ran up from behind her and grabbed her before fleeing down Talbot Road, WCVB reported.

The man may have fled after the first incident in a small dark-colored car, CBS Boston stated.


While authorities were searching for that suspect, another woman told police a similar car pulled up alongside her near Lake Chauncy, CBS Boston added. She ran from the vehicle when it approached her.

The suspect in the Northborough incident was described as a Hispanic-looking man in his 30s who stood about 5-foot-8 and was wearing khaki shorts and a dark T-shirt, a description that matched one of the men in the car later described by the woman in Westborough, WCVB stated.

"Due to the close proximity and the closeness of the [suspect's] description, it obviously raises the level of concern," Northborough police Chief William Lyver Jr. was quoted by WCVB.
