Police Release Videos and Ask Public to Help Identify Sexual Assaulter

Boston Police have released these two videos showing showing a man running at Salem and Sheafe Streets about the time of the sexual assault in the early morning hours of February 15th.

A woman in her early 20′s was attacked around 1:10 am early Saturday on Unity Street when a man pushed his way into her foyer as she was entering her building. The suspect sexually assaulted her and then used his cell phone to take a photo before fleeing toward Tileston Street, according to the victim.

Suspect Description:  White male in his 20′s, blue-eyes, short blond spiked hair, medium build, clean shaven and possible freckles on his cheeks.

The public are asked to provide any information regarding this incident to the Boston Police Sexual Assault Unit (617) 343-4400.

Community members wishing to assist this investigation anonymously can do so by calling CrimeStoppers at 1 (800) 494-TIPS or by texting the word ‘TIP’ to CRIME (27463). The Boston Police Department will stringently guard and protect the identities of those wishing to remain anonymous.

  1. One point though — he’s running down Salem and up Sheafe Street. The sooner we start looking in the right place, the sooner we can catch this guy and give him a room in another more appropriate neighborhood – like MCI Walpole. Maybe he’ll get a nice roomie who can do to him what he did here. Daily.

    1. Is there proof that this is the guy? Something’s missing here in terms of timing, and just because someone is running at 3 a.m., does not mean he jumped someone. And for sure,
      that guy is not in the area right now committing the same assaults. He’d have to be crazy.
      I wish the police would comment on this before we all think we can solve it.
      OUCH — your comment about Walpole, and OUCH to all those who gave a thumbs up.

  2. With that information he could be headed towards the Gassy. Too many people flock there for illicit things, easy to get in and out and cops don’t ever walk through.

  3. All hours. No one sees or says anything but it goes on. And below the little kids playing.. Where are all the cops?

  4. The time stamp in the first video shows an hour of 3 AM? Assault occurred at 1:10 AM according to the article. Did this guy hang around for 2 hours or is something wrong here?

    1. Tom, I think the video was shown to either eliminate or implicate the person shown.If the person in the video was an innocent person I would think that he would come forward to clear himself & perhaps provide som information on weather he witnessed anything. there could be a malfuncton with the camera time showing 3 AM.Apparently there aren’t any other surveillance cameras beyond Sheafe St.
