BOSTON (CBS) – The Boston Police Department Hackney Carriage Unit plans to increase patrols on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights after two recent sexual assaults. In both, the victims were picked up in Boston and then driven elsewhere.
In the first, August 6th, the woman told police she got into a black livery type sedan and was driven to Newton and sexually assaulted. The second, early Sunday morning, the victim hailed what she thought was a taxi in Brighton and was driven to the Boston/Cambridge line and also assaulted. Police do not believe the two attacks are connected and so far, there have been no arrests.
