BOSTON (CBS) — The police have released two images of a suspect wanted for questioning in a July 8 sexual assault in the Beacon Hill neighborhood of the city.

At about 6:15 p.m. July 8, officers were dispatched to Beacon Hill to investigated a reported indecent assault and battery, Boston Police said Sunday in a prepared statement.

The victim reported she was walking on Brimmer Street toward the Charles Street/Massachusetts General Hospital MBTA station when she was approached by a suspect who was walking in the opposite direction. The suspect indecently assaulted the victim and fled up Chestnut Street toward Charles Street.

The suspect is described as a white man in his mid-20s who is 5-foot-10 in height and about 165 pounds. He has a slim-to-medium build, dark brown shaggy hair parted in the middle, no facial hair, and clear skin with olive complexion, police said.

Boston Police are investigating a series of similar sexual assaults that took place in May. While investigators are looking into the possibility that the assaults are connected because of similar physical descriptions victims have provided of their assailant, no definitive connection between the incidents has been established.

Anyone with information on the sexual assaults can call Boston Police detectives at 617-343-4248 or the Sexual Assault Unit at 617-343-4400. Anonymous tips can be made by calling CrimeStoppers at 800-494-TIPS or by texting the word ‘TIP’ to CRIME (27463).
