Woman mugged, groped at knifepoint in broad daylight on Brookline path
A woman walking on Marion Path near Griggs Park was mugged and fondled at knifepoint by two men around 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, according to a Brookline Police report posted on the Jewish Boston mailing list.
The alert, by Sgt. Robert Disario, says the woman was "walking when grabbed from behind by two men, who subsequently stole several of her belongings" and then sexually attacked her.
Both suspects are described as white men, in their 20s and about 6' tall. Both wore black bandanas with white designs covering their faces. One had on a black Champion hoodie; the other a gray hoodie. Both had dark pants.
Police are maintaining "a steady, heavy police presence in the entire area," and are urging women to stay away from poorly lit and lightly traveled areas. That part of Brookline has a number of isolated pedestrian paths up and down hills.
