Wanted for South End attack

UPDATE: Suspect arrested.

Boston Police report they are looking for a man who attacked a woman on Harrison Avenue near the SoWA Open Market around 4:55 p.m. yesterday.

During the incident, an adult female victim was violently restrained by a white male in his thirties with a medium build, short brown hair, clean shaven, wearing a black baseball cap, blue t-shirt and black shorts, carrying a black back pack. The victim was able to free herself and call for help at which time the suspect fled the area on foot. Several witnesses attempted to stop the suspect but he was able to escape. The suspect was last seen running towards Albany Street where he jumped over a fence into the courtyard area of the Pine Street Inn. Responding officers searched the area to no avail.

Apparently, there were also robberies of vendors working the Sowa market toward the end of the day as they were breaking things down.
