    Police in Braintree, Massachusetts, are seeking the public's help in identifying a man wanted for questioning in connection with a string of recent reports of indecent touchings.

    The sexual assaults reportedly occurred in the East Braintree area. Friday, police publicized surveillance footage showing a man walking outside a Quincy Avenue dry cleaning business and on a sidewalk and a side street outside another Quincy Avenue business.

    More women are coming forward to say a man fitting the description has either followed or touched them.

    Neighbors have been on edge.

    "It's scary," said Krista Estano. "We live right here on the corner. We have kids that are young. In this neighborhood, you don't hear or see anything like that."

    "He's a sicko," said neighbor Rick Coughlin. "I believe he should be caught."

    Police warned the public Monday of multiple incidents. Wednesday, another woman reported an assault by a suspect matching the description.

    Anyone with information about the man's identity is asked to call Detective Thomas Molloy at 781-794-8679.
