On Monday, Jan. 8, at approximately 2:19 p.m., the victim of an indecent assault and battery incident came to the Harvard University Police Department (HUPD) headquarters to report that she had just been attacked while walking along Berkeley Street near Phillips Street in Cambridge. The suspect approached the victim from behind and grabbed her in an indecent manner. The victim was knocked to the ground, whereupon her screams prompted a witness to approach. The suspect then fled down Berkeley Street toward Garden Street. An immediate search of the area by the HUPD and the Cambridge Police Department proved unsuccessful.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male in his 20s, with a dark complexion, a stocky build (170 pounds, 5-foot-3-inches tall), short brown hair, brown eyes, and a large round face with full lips. He was wearing a green jacket and light colored pants.

If you have any information regarding this incident, please contact the Cambridge Police Department, Criminal Investigations Unit at (617) 349-3370.
