Woman Sexually Assaulted by Masked Man in Cambridge

Cambridge Police are issuing a “citizen alert” after a woman reported that she was sexually assaulted by a masked man Tuesday night on a path near Fresh Pond Reservation.

The victim told investigators she was walking on a path across from 679 Concord Ave, when a cyclist rode by in the opposite direction. The man reportedly stared at the woman as he passed, then donned a ski mask before turning around to grope her while still on the bicycle.

The woman fled up the path onto Concord Avenue, where she noticed that the man had fallen off of his bike. The suspect then got back on his bicycle and fled in an opposite direction.
