Somerville Police report a woman was attacked as she walked down the 300 block of Beacon Street early Monday.
She had departed the Porter Square MBTA Station and was walking alone on Beacon Street when her attacker grabbed her from behind and made an attempt to force her into a nearby alley. The victim was able to scream and fend off her attacker. The victim described her attacker as a thin black male, in his 30â€™s, 6-00, clean shaven, and wearing dark clothing.
Police say this nature of the attack and description is similar to that of an attack last week on the Cambridge side of Porter Square, although police say whether they are dealing with just one guy remains part of the investigation.
