Women March To “Take Back” Franklin Park After Monday’s Attack

BOSTON (CBS) – Women come together in Boston Thursday evening following a sexual assault at Franklin Park.

The Franklin Park Coalition, which including many women with baby strollers, walked to “take back” the park.

“When something like that happens, I think an immediate response is important to make sure that events don’t unravel further,” said one woman at the park.

This past Monday, a woman pushing her child in a stroller was attacked by a man. He pulled her off the path and groped her.

People nearby heard screams and scared the man off.

Police are investigating Monday’s attack, but have not made any arrests.
