A sexual assault in Brookline has police searching for a man who allegedly attacked a woman at the front door to her residence.
Around 1:45 a.m. on Wednesday, a woman was walking to her home on St. Paul Street when she encountered a man at the door of her building, WHDH reported. He attempted to initiate a conversation, but she told him to leave her alone.
“The suspect did not comply, and the victim, while trying to gain entry into the vestibule of her building, was grabbed and indecently assaulted by the suspect,” police said to the Boston Herald.
The victim told police that she did not know where the man came from or for how long he had been targeting her, Fox 25 stated.
The victim was able to get away from the alleged attacker and into her apartment with minor injuries, Fox 25 added.
The woman described the man as in his 20s to 30s, standing between 5-foot-9 and 5-foot-10, with dark hair and facial hair, according to WHDH.
She also told police that she had never seen him before, Fox 25 added.
