    The Boston Police Department is asking for the public's help in identifying two suspects wanted in connection with a sexual assault in Brighton.

    The sexual assault happened between the hours of 2:45 a.m. and 3:15 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 14. A woman was approached by two male suspects in the area of Commonwealth Avenue and Linden Street. One of the suspects was armed with a knife.

    The suspects forced the victim into a nearby alley in the area of Reedsdale and Linden streets at which time both suspects sexually assaulted the woman before fleeing on foot in an unknown direction.

    One suspect is described as a white-Hispanic male, about 5'5" in height, around 180 pounds, approximately 23-25 years of age, with a medium build, closely trimmed bear, an earring in one ear (possibly a stud), and wearing a short-sleeved shirt while armed with a knife.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.

    The two suspects spoke both English and Spanish.
