The Boston Police are warning people to be on the lookout for a man who allegedly attacked a woman in the Fenway area.
Boston Police responded to a report of a sexual assault at 12:30 a.m. on Tuesday on Queensberry Street. A woman told police that a man forced his way into her apartment and sexually assaulted her. She described her attacker as a white male in his mid-20’s, about 6 feet tall with a medium build and a scruffy beard. He was wearing a grey hoodie, dark jeans and black sneakers.
Anyone with information on this attack should call The Boston Police Sexual Assault Unit at 617 343 4400.
Police advise people to always be aware of their surroundings, and to try to stay in well-lit or heavily populated areas. They advise people not to be distracted by smartphones or headphones and to let a trusted person know where you are going. They also advise people to carry themselves with confidence and to avoid looking like a victim, meaning that they should be assertive and not allow anyone to violate their personal space.
They implore people to never assume that an attack can’t happen. They also suggest that people bet on themselves when confronted by an unarmed attacker by scaring the attacker or even fighting them off if the individual is confident in their ability to take their attacker on.
