    Boston Police Investigate Series of Indecent Assaults
    necn

    Boston Police are working to identify a suspect in three indecent assaults that took place in recent months in the neighborhoods of Dorchester and Roxbury.

    The attacks took place in the Lambert Street area in Roxbury and in the areas of Geneva Avenue and Downer Avenue in Dorchester. Police did not specify any dates, simply saying all the incidents happened in the last seven months.

    Each of the victims was approached by a male suspect who spoke to them before touching them inappropriately.

    In each incident, victims reported "oddities" in the suspect's voice and tone, leading police to believe he may suffer from a mental illness.

    The suspect is believed to be between 15 and 18 and between 5'5 and 5'7 with a thin build. He was seen wearing a black hoodie.

    Anyone with information is asked to call (617) 343-4400.
