Boston Police are investigating a pair of reported sexual assaults that took place over the weekend in an abandoned building on the Roxbury side of Egleston Square.
The first incident occurred Saturday February 2 where a woman reported she engaged a man in a conversation and then was led to the building on Washington Street at which time she was allegedly sexually assaulted.
The victim describes the suspect as a black male in his thirties, clean shaven, approximately 5’7” to 5’9” tall, approximately 150 – 200 lbs in weight, wearing a dark colored knit winter watchman’s style cap, a blue jacket with a green-colored under collar, light colored pants, dark colored sneakers with a white tip and side stripe.
The second incident occurred on Sunday February 3 at approximately 7:50am and according to a Boston Police statement "officers from District B-2 (Roxbury) responded to a call for a report of a sexual assault in the area of Columbus Ave & Washington Street. Officers spoke to the victim who stated she met the suspect earlier in the week and they agreed to meet him at local establishment later in the week. On Sunday (02-03-13), the suspect and the victim met on Washington Street. Similar to the incident reported a day earlier, the suspect led the victim to an abandoned property in the area of 2900 Washington Street where she was sexually assaulted by the suspect."
The victim describes the suspect as a black male in his thirties, clean shaven, approximately 5’9” to 5’10” tall, husky build, approximately 200 lbs, wearing a blue winter hat, blue winter jacket, dark colored pants and possibly black boots.
