BOSTON (CBS) – Boston Police are looking for the man responsible for attacking five women in the last six weeks in the area of Ashford Street in Brighton. The latest attack happened last Tuesday.

Police say the suspect is specifically targeting females wearing skirts. In each of the incidents, the suspect pushes the victim to the ground and takes a photo under her skirt using an iPhone.

At least one of the victims was a student at Boston University.

The attacks are occurring between the hours of 12 a.m. and 2 a.m.

The suspect is described as a white or light skinned Hispanic male between the ages of 19-30 with a thin or average build.

Police are stepping up patrols in the area, but urge residents to avoid walking alone late at night.
