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.

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.
