BOSTON (CBS) — Boston police are investigating a report of a sexual assault in the North End.

Officers say a woman in her twenties was walking into the foyer of her building on Unity Street at about 1 a.m. Saturday when a man came up from behind her and forced his way into the building.

The victim told police that she was indecently assaulted and that the suspect snapped a photo from his cell phone. He reportedly took off toward Tileston Street.

The victim was treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Police describe the suspect is as white, in his twenties, medium build, short blond spiked hair, clean shaven with possible freckles on his cheeks, and blue eyes. He was wearing a dark colored pea coat, dark hat, jeans and Timberland-type boots.

Investigators are asking anyone with information to contact them.
