After a reported assault a couple of weeks ago in the North End, The Boston Globe’s John Guilfoil listens to the story of last year’s victim from. Both attacks took place around the third week of August.
This restaurant worker, now 29, is one of at least 10 women who have been attacked by a stranger in the North End during the past five years in a series of assaults, gropings, and sexual assaults that many believe are being done by the same man.
“The similarities are overwhelming,’’ said the woman, who has since relocated outside of New England. “There’s another girl I know who was attacked a couple years ago. It’s just the same thing: a girl, outside, by herself, and he wanted to get inside her home.’’
