State Police report a woman walking on Greenough Boulevard near Grove Street in Watertown yesterday afternoon was grabbed from behind by a man who forcibly kissed and groped her.
Police say the woman screamed "No!" and "Stop!" and tried to wave down passing cars on Greenough Boulevard during the attack, but that nobody stopped.
The victim finally was able to break away and ran diagonally across the street toward Grove Street. When she turned up Grove Street she turned around and observed the suspect walking away in the opposite direction.
The suspect is described as Hispanic, in his early 30s, about 5’4″ tall, with dark hair and wearing a navy blue hat, gray T-shirt, and jeans.
We believe that, just before the attack, the suspect was hanging around a dock on the river, west of the playground at Artesani Park. At that time, the suspect was with an older Hispanic male, who appeared to be in his late 50s or early 60s, with black and grey hair and facial hair, wearing a red shirt and holding a multicolored hat. The suspect and the older man were drinking beers out of large cans. ...
Anyone who witnessed the assault or saw the victim, the suspect, or the older man, is urged to call police. We especially ask anyone who was in the area around Greenough Boulevard, Artesani Park, Grove Street, or the dock near the playground where the suspect and older man were drinking beers to pay particular attention to this request.
Motorists driving on Greenough Boulevard around 2:45 p.m. are asked to recall whether they saw the suspect or victim and, if so, to call us. We also ask that a couple that was walking a Golden Retriever on Greenough Boulevard, in the opposite direction as the victim, attempt to recall whether they saw the suspect and the older man or the victim.
